baton rouge business report am – Greater Baton Rouge Named Second Best Economic Development Market!

The Baton Rouge Business Report AM is delivering Great News for the Greater Baton Rouge housing market. The link to the article is here!

Here’s the good news:

Baton Rouge is ranked second by Southern Business and Development magazine among the top 10 mid-markets of the decade, based on the amount of new and expanded project wins over the last 10 years. Some of the notable projects in the top-10 issue include: Albemarle, Electronic Arts, SNF Holding Company and The Shaw Group. Project wins that affected rankings must have consisted of 200 or more jobs and/or $30 million or more in capital investment. Huntsville, Ala., was the only city to top Baton Rouge.

Baton Rouge was also ranked third-best metro area in economic development in 2009 by Site Selection magazine.

Adam Knapp, BRAC president and CEO, says he attributes the area’s success to the chamber’s “Campaign for a Greater Baton Rouge.” The Southern Business and Development Story can be found here.
