DFW Region Top Spot for Corporate Expansion

The Dallas-Fort Worth area was the third-best market in 2009 for companies that wanted to either build new or expand their existing corporate facilities, Site Selection magazine said on March 3, 2010.  Site Selection magazine, a publication that covers corporate real estate and economic development, evaluated the Dallas region’s corporate recruiting success in a 12-county region. 

Last year, Dallas-Fort Worth was selected by 135 companies as the site of either a corporate expansion or relocation, the publication said. The top-ranking regions are judged as long as they attract facilities that come with at least a $1 million capital investment and the creation of 50 or more jobs and the leasing and/or building of 20,000 square feet or more. Dallas-Fort Worth was topped only by New York and Chicago. (3/3/10)
