Site Selection, a corporate real estate and economic development publication, announced this week that the KC region is among the top 10 major metro areas for new and expanded facilities in 2012.
The ranking is part of the annual New Plant Scoreboard published in conjunction with Site Selection magazine’s Governor’s Cup rankings. The ranking measures new corporate facility projects with significant impact. New facilities and expansions included in the analysis must meet at least one of three criteria: (a) involve a capital investment of at least $1 million, (b) create at least 50 new jobs or (c) add at least 20,000 sq. ft. of new floor area.
