The GBD Innovation Club’s Think Tank Lab is an intellectual center, a laboratory of ideas, composed of experts whose goal is to analyze changes in the world and their impacts on the life of global business districts.

Studies and research

In 2017, a unique study carried out by EY and the Urban Land Institute, both experts in attractiveness issues and global urban development, measured the attractiveness of world-class business districts and determined a world ranking. This study, the first of its kind, benchmarks the 17 most influent tertiary districts in the world, selected on the basis of common and objective criteria. These new paradigms reflect the deep changes of aspirations that occur in the new working generations, the revolution of their way of working and give many essentials clues about what business districts of tomorrow will look like.
