Changing business needs brought about by the information technology revolution in recent decades, as well as the drive toward sustainability, require a complete rethink by urban planners and policy makers about the conservation of historical centers and the types and locations of office buildings. This book analyzes these processes and policy areas, offering a broad, international perspective on the myriad issues involved in office markets, including supply and demand, property investment, spatial structure of local office markets, planning policies, and the long term sustainability of cities.
