To compete on the global stage, Madrid needs a next-generation Central Business District with a range of quality offi ces that can meet the needs of large corporations and perform the role that our capital should in the world. Creating this CBD will be the key to creating quality jobs, attracting international talent, as well as the talent Spain has exported over recent years. The project is expected to generate over 130,000 jobs.
Business districts recently built all over the world have been studied in detail to design this CBD. One of the outcomes of this learning curve was the decision to prioritise the quality of public space and the wellbeing of those who live and work in the area by mixing the use of offi ces, houses and shops.
