The future of the CBD - know your options
Central business districts (CBDs) represent millions of square metres of prime-value city assets. They are also on the frontline of a changing outlook on the office of the future.

However, the smart approach to recovery for investors and owners will be led by those who have developed a series of informed options for the shape of things to come. From La Defense in Paris to Lujiazui in Shanghai, CBDs are poised to become crucibles for change.
