Atlanta, GA

Atlanta will only become more relevant as a cultural and financial hub in the 2020s. It enjoys one of the most educated workforces in the country, while also having a comparatively low cost of living.

Thanks to the flat land surrounding the city, it has spread out across an area about the size of New Hampshire. City officials are hoping to combat this as new residents move in, and are instead investing in high-density, mixed-income developments around the downtown core. This can be seen in the city’s footprint, which first grew outwards but is now growing upwards. 

Growth in Atlanta’s construction industry is expected to come primarily from the residential sector, although the manufacturing sector has proven unexpectedly robust. With its cheap land and access to the rest of the country, Atlanta is an attractive option for businesses looking to relocate operations to the United States.
