Oklahoma City. I would like to see the metro in the 4 million range. Unlikely to happen soon, however.

Billings MT, It would be nice to have a large metro in the northern mountain west between Seattle and Chicago. Sorry Spokane your not central enough between the two

You'll probably get your wish, Billings is seeing massive growth. the city itself has increased by 6% in the last 5 years. and its metro is rapidly reaching 200k.

In general the mountain west cities are all the current "boom" towns and areas of rapid growth. Reno, Boise, Spokane, Denver, Phoenix, LAs Vegas, Salt Lake.

I see no reason to think this will slow down, the West coast was the former boom reign of the last century but now it is full and expensive. I think the interior is the next area to really develop.

It is near Oil reserves and on some major highways, I wouldn't be surprised to see it really take off in coming decades.

I absolutely agree with this. Especially being a native of Boise. It has been remarkable being able to see first-hand the growth of this city over my years. This is a completely "different" city my daughter is growing up in than the one I did.......if that makes sense. It has been fun to watch but, like everything, it has definitely come with a price.

I feel like Tucson has the right geographic location, population, and geographic features to accent a greater urban area. However, I don't see any new tower growth any time soon which is unfortunate. But just imagine if this city became a mini financial capital. There's plenty of open space but also plenty of developed space.
