 SEATTLE DROPS TO 2ND BEST BUSINESS LOCATION IN 1991
 CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD MONITOR SURVEY
 Seattle maintains No. 1 quality of life position
 SEATTLE, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Knocking Seattle out of last year's lead, chief executive officers rate Seattle as the second best business location in America, according to the 1991 national Cushman & Wakefield Monitor survey. This year, Atlanta received the No. 1 rating, up from sixth place last year.
 The Monitor study, conducted by Louis Harris & Associates, shows that Seattle continues to rate first in quality of life among both office and industrial users. "Not only is Seattle's economy still considered to be one of the strongest in the nation, but CEOs view Seattle as the most desirable place to live and work," said Thomas C. Abbott, managing director and branch manager of Cushman & Wakefield of Washington Inc.
 Seattle improved its rating -- from seventh to second place -- for access to raw materials. Its ratings declined from eighth to 24th place for cost and availability of office labor and from 11th to 21st place for cost of office space.
 Out of the 32 cities addressed in the survey, Tampa was rated the third-best business location (up from 10th place); Dallas-Fort Worth was rated fourth (up from eighth position) and Portland came in fifth (down from third place).
 The Cushman & Wakefield monitor polled 400 chief executive officers on which cities are most attractive for locating a business facility, and the factors that influence those choices. The U.S. companies represented had annual revenues of at least $250 million.
