Business Facilities, a national publication focusing on economic development, has selected Alabama’s recruitment of Landing’s headquarters relocation project as one of its “Deals of the Year” in a new ranking.
Landing, a company building a nationwide network of fully furnished apartments available in a membership model, announced plans in June 2021 to move its headquarters from San Francisco to Birmingham. The move means 816 new jobs for the city.
Landing’s move was made possible by a partnership forged with the State of Alabama, Jefferson County and the City of Birmingham, led by the Birmingham Business Alliance.
Business Facilities named the project its “Deal of the Year” in the Startup category. The announcement was made online and will be included in the magazine’s January/February issue, out next month.
