The political focus of the nation may temporarily be in Charlotte this week, but when the politicos leave town, will Charlotte's reputation as a business and CRE hub remain?
|According to Cassidy Turley managing regional principal Steve Gassaway, the international media exposure Charlotte receives from hosting the DNC will have a long-lasting impact on economic development. CRE investors are focused on Charlotte and for good reason: a low cost of doing business, its ability to attract talent, and its world-class airport. ?If it's not there already, the DNC will put Charlotte on everyone's radar,? Steve tells us. (If somehow people forget, we'll get Clint Eastwood to leave an empty chair for our fair city. That usually gets people's attention.)|
