Another topic i was surprised had never been started.
what cities would u say r currently low in population (below 150,000-100,000, more or less) but are going to be (or just could be) major cities (not necessarily cosmopolitan) in the future? based on growth rates, amount of businesses starting up/HQ'ing there, etc.

The only one i could think of is maybe Stamford, CT-the city already has a better skyline than major cities like virginia beach and san antonio, and has many different neighborhoods.

what small cities today could be BIG in the future???

Lafayette, LA
Shreveport, LA has the bones, but Dallas sucks it dry.
Jackson, MS, since it's the capital city in the state, if Mississippi ever gets the ball rolling.

Nah, they seem content on staying exactly the way they are despite having many advantages with the type of industry there.

If a city isn't already on the map by now, it likely never will be.

Raleigh-Durham-Cary is one of the few small cities that has the prerequisites to make the transition to a major US city. Give it 30 years, and it will be the most relevant southern city.
