Alexandria Ranked #1 for Small City Business Climate

Business Facilities Magazine gave the City top honors for the second year in a row
For the second year in a row, Business Facilities magazine has placed Alexandria atop its rankings for Best Business Climates for cities with populations under 200,000.

Our neighbors to the north, Arlington, also topped their mid-sized city category for the second year in a row. The DC/Arlington/Alexandria metro region was ranked #7 for corporate headquarters locations.

“This ranking is a reflection of our community’s commitment to attracting and retaining businesses across a variety of industries while protecting and promoting the neighborhoods that make us so desirable. We’re proud of the hard work City Council, our businesses, our residents, and our City staff put in to achieve this balance, and we’re delighted to be recognized a second time,” said AEDP President and CEO Stephanie Landrum.
