Megapolitans of the Future

This article was written by in Real Estate and Home. Comments Off

I’ve been a bit busy at work today, so I haven’t had the chance to do the usual surfing. I did notice this article earlier and it’s interesting enough to mention. Business 2.0 is predicting a big boom in the “megapolitan” areas, extending to 2030. The authors of the article, Paul Kaihla and Krysten Crawford, define these megapolitan areas with names of varying catchiness:

* Altantic Seaboard (Boston, New York, Washington)
* I-85 Corridor (Raleigh-Durham, Atlanta)
* Southern Florida (Miami, Tampa)
* Great Lakes Horeseshoe (Detroit, Chicago, Pittsburgh)
* I-35 Corridor (Kansas City, Dallas, San Antonio)
* Gulf Coast Belt (New Orleans, Houston)
* Valley of the Sun (Phoenix, Tucson)
* Southland (Los Angeles, Las Vegas)
* Norcal (Sacramento, San Francisco)
* Cascadia (Seattle, Portland)
