A new report that considers the Raleigh-Durham market as one, not separate, ranks the Triangle region as one of the top “Tech Cities” in the United States. And the data the report compiles is seen as giving the area a boost when it comes to companies with site expansion plans.
The report comes as Raleigh-Durham remains a possible choice for Amazon’s HQ2 and a planned new campus for Apple. It also comes just a day after another report concluded that the capital city and Triangle have an image perception problem when it comes to technology.
The Tech Cities 2.0 report from one of the nation’s top corporate real estate firms, Cuschman & Wakefield, lists Raleigh-Durham as a top 25 tech city. And the data looks good for those touting the region as a place for tech as well as life science firms to call home or to expand current operations.
