In the face of major challenges, global business districts share the same ambition: to become an attractive territory, offering a healthier, more sustainable and resilient urban environment, in order to convert it into «work, live, study and play» area.

Taking into account this context, the GBD Innovation Club, EY and ULI release the results of the second edition of the Attractiveness of Global Business Districts Report. The study analizes 21 business districts, and is based on 40 indicators and the view of 350 professionals worldwide as well.
