How much growth will NBAF give Manhattan/KSU?
« on: September 01, 2010, 04:32:38 PM »
I'm not in the know so I really have no idea.  Does anyone know of any projections or have any type of answers on this?

Estimated to grow at about 6969% for the next 69 years. Shouldnt end up with somewhere around 6.9 million people in the Manhattan metro area by 2069.

Not that Weefer is the most reliable source or anything, but there's this:

Quote
Construction of the biodefense laboratory in Manhattan, Kansas, is “the most important economic development event in Kansas since railroads crossed the length of the state, some observers opine. Jon Wefald, president of Kansas State University, notes that Manhattan’s population could double in 15 years as Kansas State and the city “are poised to become the epicenter of a Silicon Valley of animal health for this state, America, and the world.” He anticipates that the center will “draw hundreds of animal-health and food-safety researchers worldwide” and will “present a huge gravitational pull” for “companies to line up offices and plants along a research corridor stretching east to Kansas City and all the way to Columbia, Missouri.” Wefald continued, “This event will go down in our state’s history as one of Kansas’ finest hours—period. Amen and goodnight.”

At best it might mean an increase of 10,000 people. That is if we can lure the manufacturing companies to the area. Otherwise it will probably increase it by about 1,000 people.

Rumblings have that there will be three Chinese, four Indians and a  small contingent of Thai whores for these scientist's pleasure.

I'd say about 1000 to 1500 directly related to NBAF.   It might push 2000 depending on who else wants to hop on the gravy train.

Of course if you listen to people like my brother a science degree nerdy type . . . the NBAF is going to kill all living things within 6 years anyway.

In terms of people, I'm not sure. But in terms of academic benefit, I think it could be a big factor in KSU's push to get to Tier 1. This is the type of place that will help pump out some high-quality doctorates...

A lot of locals are also hoping this could be the deciding factor that finally brings us a Red Lobster.

It isn't the amount of jobs but how many of the jobs are high paying.  A large influx of upper class would be huge for the manhattan economy.  I mean, say it brings 1,500 people.  How many of these people are going to make > $100k?  That's the important number, not the amount of total people (imo).

 Also, ya, red lobster would blow the doors off this SOB.

The Red Lobster is very important for our status as a big time city.  Plus, with all of these people with high paying people coming to town they are going to need a good place to eat, entertain, "do business", etc.  Red Lobster.

Hearing rumblings we might be getting some form of bus service as well.  Thanks again, NBAF.

I understand Reb Lobster is "big time", but can we opt for a Joe's Crab Shack instead?

The pop expansion is not due directly to NBAF employees.

The description I heard regarding how this will increase the pop is due to other companies that will be coming in to be near to NBAF.  About a year ago, the city had reported a decent amount of other companies that had opened discussions with both Manhattan and Junk City about moving their companies there, contingent upon the NBAF approval.  Lots of labs that work on stuff directly related to what the NBAF does, to the point that proximity is important.

Fracking hate that place.

Some of the food is ok, but not worth the annoying people or the prices.

Joe's Crab Shack is crappy everywhere. They went out of business in my hometown for good reason. You always get 1 or more things to detract from your restaurant experience while you're there; sometimes your food is undercooked, sometimes they get your order wrong, sometimes their food takes like dog barf, and all of the time their stuff is overpriced.
