This is one of ten high growth US regions in the next 30 years according to this article.

I-85 CORRIDOR

The 410-mile stretch from Atlanta to Raleigh is fast becoming a contiguous strip of McMansions and McDonald

I don't know if it will by 2030 but it eventually will. We need a better name for the area though than I-85 corridor. The Georgia - Carolina Empire or something.

I don't know that this is something that i would be proud of though. Not all the development will be people friendly and even the slightest bit urban. I would hope that somebody will think the development through, if in fact all these PREDICTIONS of trends come true.

I think we discussed this subject somewhat in the "Atlanta megalopolis" thread here.

Since this high-growth corridor will extend from the Triangle to Atlanta, how about the "Trilanta megalopolis"? No? Ok, lemme think some more...

Most important rule in naming a region...or anything for that matter: you have to be able to pronounce it. :blink:

I know all you NC/SC people here would prefer the "Carolina" part to be mentioned more prominantly, but I can't think of how that can be accomplished. Hence, "Georgialina".... a-la Charlotte's metro nickname, "Metrolina".

Some of these names crack me up... I guess I won't be laughing in 25 years though

This very well could be a megalopolis in 20-30 years...we'll see.

There is already a lightly connected "mini-megalopolis" in NC: Charlotte-Triad-Triangle.
