Riverside is on a roll—it was just named one of the top 10 "coolest" cities in the U.S. by Forbes magazine—and the local construction market is poised for additional growth, Bailey says. "In recent years, the $1.8-billion Riverside Renaissance Initiative has created numerous funds for historic renovations, beautification and various construction projects throughout the city," she says. "In addition, the approval of the UC Riverside School of Medicine expansion bill offers various opportunities toward growth of a vibrant community."
