Location

North Carolina’s central location on the East Coast is one of the Moncure Megasite’s most important strategic advantages. Not only is the state part of the fast-growing Sun Belt, it also benefits from a business-friendly East Coast time zone. Additionally, it’s only a 4.5 hour drive to Washington, D.C. (or a 45 minute flight), and businesses here can access 200 million U.S. and Canadian consumers within a two-day truck drive.

Within the state, Moncure sits just minutes from the nation’s second fastest growing metro area (Raleigh) and just a short 45-minute drive from the world-renowned Research Triangle Park. This means access to a large, diverse and skilled workforce and an impressive roster of domestic and international businesses operating across a broad range of industry sectors.

Education is the foundation of our region’s success. The Moncure Megasite is within 40 miles of 18 Colleges and Universities, including three Tier One Research Universities (Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, and NC State). These three institutions alone represent approximately $2 billion in research expenditures annually and confer more than 20,000 degrees.
