Now we can be the big BANANA again! Dole Foods moving corporate HQ from California to uptown!  ""Dole Food Co. is growing its business in the Charlotte region.  The agricultural company, the worl

I strongly suspect this is one of them (yes that's right there are two)

That new building in Miami is impressive, but I still firmly believe that Charlotte will have several billionaires in the foreseeable future.  Charlotte is a TOTALLY different city from when I first saw it around 1991.  At that time, I would have never guessed that it would become what it is today.

Charlotte will not have multiple billionaire's living within the city anytime soon.

We are so so far from making this list that this doesn't make sense. Currently North Carolina as a whole only ranks #27 in this country for number of billionaires (just 3). Missouri, Oklahoma, Montana, Indiana, Arkansas, Wyoming, Arizona, et. all have more. We are probably more likely to get hit by an asteroid in the next 20 years than have 50 - 100 billionaires move to North Carolina. 

4 now. 

1) Goodnight, SAS, Cary, NC

2) Sweeney, Epic Games, Cary, NC

3) Sall, SAS, Cary, NC

4) Dennis Gillings, IQVIA, Durham, NC

 

Having local billionaires hasn't much done much of anything for the Triangle. A new wing of the Art Museum...and?

I agree, and not only do I fail to see a clear link between billionaire primary residences and a sustainable and INCLUSIVE Charlotte economy, but I also reject the trickle-down theories that such a desire seems to imply.  Unlocking billionaire capital reserves and resources and making them available to finance ideas and innovation across a vast and diverse demography of budding, local entrepreneurs (including high-quality local education,  high-quality research, and high-quality infrastructure) is a much more worthy objective.  Billionaires invest in innovation and productivity in many places far and away from their primary residences, so I feel a local billionaire primary residence COUNT has very little to do with the title of this thread - ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN CHARLOTTE.

I will admit that I am fiscally liberal enough that I don't think billionaires should exist at all and that their value to society is limited to schlocky entertainment value.

Billionaires add a lot to local communities.  They fund new parks, monuments, cultural buildings, etc.  NY and London have benefited immensely from their Uber-rich residents.  

Economic relocations to NC may bring should pretty wealthy people to the state.

The April 2021 CBRE COVID-19 Impact on Resident Migration report was just released and Charlotte had the second highest growth of top 25 metros. VERY impressive numbers. Only Austin had higher growth.

I'm digging the total metro pop. as well. 

Is that maybe CSA rather than metro? Either way crossing that 3 mil mark is huge.

Our metro population has been consistently bigger than Austin  (MSA and CSA).

Ah ok.  Got it.  These figures are still a bit puzzling, however, because the last updated figures I'd seen had us at around 2.6 or 2.7 million, and that number was fairly consistent across data providers.  I know we're growing, but something else must be getting included for us to make that big a leap.
