Nimble City

Cities sprawl. They are living, breathing entities; never a single story, always a multitude of narratives layering one on another other through unpredictably connected and disparate routes. There are countless authors of every city’s story, including those of us working in commercial property development. Our sector is a vital contributor to the life of cities, infusing them with energy and opportunity in business and the built environment. Like everything else, commercial property has been significantly impacted by the pandemic, but alongside an understandable focus on the prospects for leases and rents I see a growing appetite for a new quality of thinking.
