Location & Infrastructure

A Region Based on Assets

The Carolina Core is defined by the assets that make the region a globally competitive market – a talent pool of more than 2 million people, access to 30+ colleges and universities with 250,000 students, multiple airports, four megasites totaling 7,200 acres of certified land, urban research parks and more. 

This 120+ mile stretch of central North Carolina from west of Winston-Salem to Fayetteville encompasses Greensboro and High Point and has close proximity to Charlotte and the Research Triangle, all along future Interstate 685. These assets have long served companies, from the era of producing distinctly American goods like tobacco and textiles to the current global tech-based economy.
