The Triangle’s Skilled Workforce

There was a recent news item discussing a major employment expansion opportunity that read “the other contenders are Atlanta, Austin, Texas; Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.”    Amazon?  no.     Apple?  not them, either.    This exciting opportunity where the Triangle is a finalist is the Army!

Specifically, the Army Futures Command is looking for a headquarters “located near innovative and agile industrial and academic institutions to align with these organizations and in a place where the command will inculcate the culture needed to develop the innovation and synergy required to lead the Army’s modernization effort.”

That criteria matches the Triangle perfectly.

According to the press release, the Army Futures Command “is the most significant Army reorganization effort since 1973. Army Futures Command will be the fourth Army Command and will be tasked with driving the Army into the future to achieve clear overmatch in future conflicts.”   Lead by a four-star General, the command will directly employ 500+ civilians as well as provide for a large pool of indirect jobs in support  of the command.

Go Army!  (and Amazon and Apple of course, too).

Goldilocks eating Baby Bear’s porridge

We hear it all the time, “This space is too big, this space is too small.”  “The cap rate is too high (it won’t lease), the cap rate is too low (it won’t sell).” If everything could be like it seems in the tale of Goldilocks – a discovery of what is “just right”.

As we blogged last month there is much wisdom in these classic stories.  In Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a little girl named Goldilocks tastes three different bowls of porridge, and she finds that she prefers porridge which is neither too hot nor too cold, but has just the right temperature.

Like the weather in North Carolina – it can be wickedly humid, other times it rains on our weekend plans, and there are hurricanes that keep us on guard, but often times like today it is spring and beautiful and green – life is a journey, appreciating when we find the just right.

At Amy Bush Commercial, we would like to help you find your own Goldilocks spaces.  Give us a call and let us know how we can help!
