I do not think Charlotte or Raleigh will have to build a MLS stadium.

They keep making post about it because people entertain them.

people from Charlotte like the Hurricanes, if they care about hockey.

Mailbag: 40 feedback letters on babies vs dogs, Raleigh vs Charlotte MLS bids, apartments and rabbits

By Ted Williams | July 28, 2017



“Raleigh doesn’t hold Charlotte’s jock strap in ANYTHING.” – D


“The Canes are dead F’ing last. Not even close. Doesn’t exactly inspire hope for future attendance, does it? Conversely, the Panthers have 150+ straight sellouts; the Knights have led all AAA teams in attendance every season since the move to Uptown; the Hornets sold 92.4% of their tickets last season. Good article though, with some fair points. I agree that Raleigh has done a much better job putting together their bid, but it’s not even close to being on par with Charlotte for major league sports.” – B


“Raleigh can have hockey and soccer. We’ve got NBA and NFL!” – C

A Tale of Two Tech Markets: Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte


CBRE’s recent ranking of the Charlotte as the top metro for growth in tech talent comes as little surprise to us at the chamber. Growth in the technology sector has been a major component of Charlotte’s recovery from the recession. As the CBRE report notes, key technology occupations grew by more than 77 percent in the Charlotte metro area between 2011 and 2016. In raw numbers, that’s 21,690 new tech jobs.


What’s surprising? The Raleigh-Durham area added 1,000 fewer technology jobs than Charlotte during this time period.

Charlotte Ranks No. 2 in U.S. for Economic Growth Potential and Among Top 10 for Startups


For immediate release – Business Facilities’ 13[SIZE=2]th[/SIZE] Annual Rankings Report, released today, names Charlotte as the second top metro in the country for Economic Growth Potential (cities greater than 300,000 population) and No. 10 for Startup Growth. Today’s announcement is the second significant economic development accolade in less than a week for the Queen City. Previously, CBRE crowned Charlotte as the top small metro market for tech talent.


“Charlotte is on fire with companies from across the country – and the world – considering relocating or expanding here,” said Bob Morgan, Charlotte Chamber CEO and president. “Our diverse and talented workforce combined with favorable business climate, great weather, cultural and sports amenities as well as affordable quality of life make it tough to beat.”

Charlotte continues to expand as a rising financial, tech and insurance hub. Earlier this month, Sitehands announced the creation of more than 200 new jobs over the next five years with the decision to locate its global headquarters in Charlotte, and in May, insurance giant AXA announced it will add 550 jobs to its University-area offices to create the largest of its U.S. operations. The completion of the AXA Charlotte campus expansion will bring more than 1,000 jobs including IT, finance, legal, accounting, customer service, human resources and more to the University location. The expansion represents a roughly $18 million investment.

Allstate Insurance announced a major expansion of its Charlotte operations, creating 2,250 jobs and investing $22.6 million over the next three years.


Allstate’s announcement comes after a big year for insurance projects in Charlotte. Just three months ago, Paris-based global insurer AXA announced a 550-job expansion that will nearly double its local presence and make Charlotte its largest location in the U.S.

What is more impressive are the cities that Charlotte beat out for these jobs...

Allstate already has a large call center in Charlotte. A state Department of Commerce document says Allstate chose the region for its expansion over places like Phoenix, Denver, Philadelphia and suburban Dallas.
Allstate plans big expansion in North Carolina

Lincoln Harris, one of the Southeast’s preeminent commercial real estate development, investment and property management companies, unveiled today the name and plans for Legacy Union, one of the largest development projects ever in Uptown and located on the former Charlotte Observer site.


Legacy Union features a 33-story office tower of stone and glass, set for completion in the first quarter of 2019. A grand staircase will greet visitors and a 100-foot, glass-and-steel pyramid will cap the building, making it a landmark on the Charlotte skyline. Bank of America is the anchor tenant and will occupy approximately 550,000 square feet, leaving an estimated 300,000 square feet available for lease.

Haha the governor has an interesting solution. Why not have a Major League Soccer team in both Charlotte and Raleigh? Both cities could support it.
