I declared the decade of Gaston County a while back and just read the special advertising section in this weeks Biz Journal about Gaston county.  

Here are some highlights:

Apple Creek Corporate Center the county owned business park that opened this year with 300 acres.  It is already half sold out.  It has 3 European companies from Finland, Germany, Netherlands plus several American companies.   My thoughts get planning on your next park now.    https://www.gaston.org/index.php  Only 5 sites left.

Caromont Hospital has $350 M in expansions at its main campus in Gastonia and their new 66 bed Belmont hospital.
