Projects, investment push growth beyond borders of Mecklenburg

CHARLOTTE — Despite a housing fallout and a weak job market, local officials in Gaston, Cabarrus, Iredell and Union counties share a long-term vision for economic development in 2010: growth, expansion and prosperity as the need for warehouse, manufacturing, office, retail and distribution space flourishes.
Businesses tied to racing, manufacturing, finance, energy and healthcare are fueling a demand for commercial space in the five counties surrounding the Charlotte metro region.
