Driving Economic Opportunity in the Concord Business Corridor
Our growing business sector, the Concord Business Corridor, is centered on S.R. 44 and includes heavily traveled Auburn and Crile Roads as well as the Capital Parkway Extension. With medical facilities in the area bringing in employees, visitors and patients, the Corridor has seen a significant increase in population.
- University Hospitals TriPoint Medical Center and University Hospital Concord Health Center, along with doctors’ offices, employ approximately 1,300 people
- 109,663 people live within a 15-minute drive from the JEDD.
- Retail follows rooftops-and with more residents moving close to the Corridor, there is unmet demand for shopping, dining, and business services.
