Charlotte gaining a Fortune 1000 company (#628 to be precise) with relocation of Dentsply Sirona from suburban Philly to Ballantyne.

This follows on their announced job expansion with help of state incentives last year.

This is huge news for the city as it diversifies its economy. Charlotte is really killing it lately on corporate relocations lately.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves on this Lowes Tech center with 2000 employees while I think CLT is the best place and due to the location of the HQ in Mooresville  but Dallas is strong competition.

Remember current Lowes CEO was CEO of JCPenney in Plano suburban Dallas so he is very familiar with that market in terms of  tech capabilities.   We need to win this!  And yes LoSo or Southend is prefect for this or a Portman or the Superica Childress Klein tower   but we NEED to win this first.

Dallas is smack dab in the middle of the country, but this isn't a distribution center. 

This is Charlotte's to lose. Dallas is just in the running to leverage for incentives.

I agree but the tech community in Dallas is HUGE  I don't want anybody thinking this is ours for sure.  Especially at the regional partnership.   I know the execs overseeing big tech initiatives are all in Charlotte area and makes total sense to move this here.  Just Home Depot has all their tech people in Atlanta.

They have several more buildings in their Mooresville HQ projected in their master plan. They must be fishing for incentives before picking the obvious.
