Charlotte, Triangle tech job growth lauded in CBRE report

Tech employment is soaring in the Charlotte and Triangle markets, a new report by the CBRE real estate company shows.
Charlotte added about 21,700 tech jobs between 2011-16, a 77% increase. That was the fastest growth of the 50 metro areas included in the study. It reflects considerable hiring by the city’s financial services companies, large corporations and an emerging startup scene, according to Colin Yasukochi, the CBRE analyst who authored the report. CBRE identifies about 50,000 tech workers in the city.


Raleigh-Durham remains a bigger tech market with about 60,900 workers, a total that increased 51% over the last five years.

It's one person's interpretation. Raleigh certainly has the strong university system and highly educated workforce, but Charlotte does better when it comes to mass transit and the airport. If Tampa's on the list, Charlotte certainly should be also.

Why not Milwaukee or Omaha? I thought Raleigh-Durham was one of America's top tech friendly metros BTW...

RDU is, which is why it's probably somewhere on the list. Omaha isnt' a 1M+ metro, and Milwaukee? With Chicago right down the road? Probably not.

For some reason Charlotte doesn't seem to be on the short list. I can't say that won't change. Maybe that will change,heck maybe Amazon will move to Charlotte. At this point it's not looking like a possibility though.

Keep in mind there is no official short list from Amazon because bidding is still under way until October. The list is supposedly all of the cities that meet the requirements for Amazon. So why is Raleigh on this particular list and not Charlotte? I say this because Raleigh fails one of the requirements. One requirement is to have have a site directly linked to mass transit (i'm assuming commuter/light rail). There is no mass transit of this type in the Triangle. However Charlotte has light rail and meets all of the other requirements. So this particular list which seems to be put together by some editorial, may have cities on the list that shouldn't be there. I think they will look for an east coast city and one that is culturally fitting for their company (creative class/cosmopolitan )

The cities that stick out are New York, Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, suburban DC (Virginia)
