Charlotte named
a City of the Future

International magazine ranks Queen City
No. 3 among large U.S. cities

Charlotte business leaders and economic recruiters are convinced the city has caught the eye of national and international investors and developers.

Now they have more evidence.

The Financial Times group's fDi magazine ranked Charlotte No. 3 overall among large U.S. cities (500,000 to 2 million population) behind El Paso, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio, in its annual Cities of the Future selections.

Chicago was North America's Major City of the Future.

The magazine said 108 major, large, small and micro cities were evaluated on 60 criteria.

Within key categories, Charlotte finished No. 1 in the U.S. in economic potential, No. 1 in quality of life, No. 3 in best development and investment promotion and No. 5 in human resources.

The city also is getting a boost from two just-released Charlotte Chamber reports that indicate the local economy is maintaining its strong momentum.
