Nearly two dozen new and rehabbed structures that opened in the past year highlight the November 2022 Business North Carolina. The annual Building NC feature emphasizes the state’s growth including new offices, health care, lodging and entertainment projects. Top billing goes to a unique arena-hotel-convention center at High Point University. Another feature describes how some N.C. cities are attacking the affordable-housing crisis, while Edward Martin explains how a South Carolina-based tribe was able to establish a lucrative casino just across the state line in the Tar Heel State. Columnist Dan Barkin reports on Eaton Corp.’s impact in the state as it shifts focus from gas-powered engines to electrifying vehicles and the grid. Other stories include a ranking of the state’s biggest craft brewers; Asheville’s potential ban of plastic containers; a golf-training company that tries to make the sport fun for newbies; and a look at the money sloshing around college football.
