According to a CNNMoney report, Greenville was the ninth fastest growing city in the U.S. with a 32.5 percent growth between 2000 and 2010.
According to the report, Greenville has become an “international powerhouse” for companies globally. Greenville, once known for textile manufacturing, is now grouped with Spartanburg, Anderson and other towns as “The Upstate,” the northwestern region of South Carolina.
Because of the increasing job opportunities, real estate builders are expected to meet the growing population.
With over 250 international firms, including BMW (Germany), Michelin (France), GlaxoSmithKline (United Kingdom) and Kyocera (Japan), Greenville is becoming the manufacturing hub where people come from all over the world to buy, sell and study the manufacturing industry.
“That’s the highest international investment per capita in the nation,” said Nancy Whitworth, Greenville’s Director of Economic Development.
Eight out of the 10 fastest growing cities are in Southern states. Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson’s total population is approximately one million.
