Inner City Reinvestment

Category: Society

Baltimore: USA Today has a great article today about the relocation of companies to the inner city in what may be the begnining of a reversal to the decades old trend ot suburban flight. In addition to the myriad social benefits of increasing employement posibilities in central urban neighborhoods, the practical business benefits are fantastic:

  • Central location, fewer transport issues
  • Ready work force that dosn't need to drive or bus long distances
  • Close to highways, railroads, and other existing infrastructure
  • Underserved Markets
  • Increased creativity due to stimulating urban environment
  • Tax benefits
