Baton Rouge State Capitol Building, downtown Baton Rouge, LouisianaAre you looking for a home in the Baton Rouge area within a 30 minute commute of downtown? So may many others with the growth of downtown as reported recently. 

This week the Business Report posted news that Baton Rouge is now in the Big leagues as far as cities go now squaring off against the likes of Austin, TX, Charlotte, N.C., Kansas City, Mo-Kan., Louisville, KY, Nashville, Tenn., and a host of other major-market metropolitan areas. It said "

"But then came word last month that 100,000 people have moved into the Capital Region in the past decade, forcing our population over the magic 800,000 mark and bumping us into a whole new economic-development weight class. No Southern regions have crossed that line since El Paso, Texas, in 1999 and Tulsa, Okla., some 15 years before that....Market size is a factor when business and industry determine whether workforce will be adequate to support new locations and expansions. Airlines take it into account when deciding whether to add service or flights. Young professionals seeking an urban setting, and all the accompanying amenities, consider it when looking for a place to set down roots. Professional organizations look for the same when scheduling conferences and conventions."  Read the entire report of How Baton Rouge Measures up.

I didn't know that either, Ann. There goes the infra-structure. But, the surrounding areas should do well.
