The North Carolina Triangle Research Park Region, including Cary and Apex, has been awarded numerous awards and designations, not the least of which are "Best for Business", "Best Place to Live", and "Top Region for Inward Investment." So many high-tech and research companies have rooted themselves in this region, that the economy is gathering momentum and attracting ever more business and residential population.
While portions of this region had been less active economically in previous years, the entire region caught fire, so to speak, with suburbs expanding to house new workers in high-tech industries and educational facilities in the large metro areas within and near the Research Triangle.
