Evidence of World City Formation; Kansas City? ROFL

The core metro area of Kansas City is not even growing as fast as Omaha, NE!

St. Louis is still a much bigger metro area.

It did kind of surprise me that KC is listed when STL isn't. No offense to Kansas City, but I think St. Louis is just as influential and almost 1 million people bigger (metro area).

Seattle should be moved up one point as well as Atlanta. Kansas City and Richmond should be moved down one point.

I have this month's Gourmet magazine. There is an ad in the magazine about DIFFA's Dining By Design. I was wondering when it will come to Houston, but only saw Dallas and Atlanta as the only Southern cities. I think it they expect people to come out from all over region (e.g. San Antonians, Austinites, and Houstonians coming to Dallas for this exhibit).

I was surprised to see Kansas City listed as the second stop in the tour and started to think about the GaWC list. I think KC will get the hype Austin received in the late-90's and in 10 years we will be nauseated about how hip and cool KC is. KC, SA, and Charlotte are the next generation of popular cities east of the Rockies.

Charlotte has been rather popular for the last 20 years
Kansas City and San Antonio will never be popular places to move to because they are too close to the Great Plains for comfort. Also, both cities have an undesirable climate.

Richmond should be removed. That is a joke. As I understand it, this list was produced by a bunch of British students, and I have never really seen what criteria they used. By any objective criteria, Denver should top Richmond. It's much larger, has a huge IT industry, and Colorado has a lot of energy resources. I don't know what you can say about Richmond.

Does it have to grow faster just because its larger? Do you need me to rant about this again?

It is really hard to compare Kansas City to Omaha. The core "urban counties" in the KC metro area grew less than 2% over the past 6 years. The growth is occurring on the outer fringes. Omaha just feels denser compared with most areas of Kansas City. With that said I still don't believe Kansas City or Richmond should be on the GaWC list.

Charlotte's growth spurt is happening now actually--think Houston in the early 90's.

Dallas is much closer to the Great Plains than San Antonio and it's currently the most popular area to move to. Those hills in the northern half of San Antonio are very nice and sometimes rival nearby Austin.
