Not in any particular order. I'd say when these pass the 5 million mark, we could consider them big league definitely. For some, the question is if they ever cross and for others, when they cross.

I like some of the aspects some of these cities bring. In a way, looking at some of these places is like what seeing Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Miami, DMV, Bay Area, Detroit in the last 60-200 years.

I think we definitely have to increase the number from 5 million mark by the time most of these cities hit that. The 5 million mark does apply to a city like Seattle to become major but surely it's going to have to increase by the time cities like Sacramento or Raleigh gets there.

The same thing with urbanity in the future but completely different things for that though.

This is spot on. Huge new developments are being constructed all around the city.

Seattle is already a borderline major city. If it isnt, it's literally on the cusp, as it has what, the 12th-highest national GDP? Literally just a few billion behind Miami...Seattle is already a major city...

Phoenix is already a major city as well. Denver is knocking on that door and is a certainty to become a major city. Charlotte, Austin, and Nashville have outside shots at reaching that level, and so does Raleigh, but it's a long shot...

Big no to the rest of these cities, at least within the next quarter century. Neither Cleveland or Pittsburgh are major cities and though they have the infrastructure in place better than most of these cities, neither has the job or population growth to reach that recognition, nor is there any evidence to suggest that either will within the next quarter century...
