JLL Global300: The New Commercial Geography of Cities


​In order to make sense of the massive opportunities that rapid urbanization is offering the real estate industry, JLL has identified its Global300: 300 cities that we predict will account for the bulk of economic and commercial real estate activity over the next decade. The Global300 is a key element of JLL’s City Research Center, a multi-year program that assesses city competitiveness and the role of real estate. 

The Global300 is based on a Commercial Attraction Index, which is distinct in that it includes key real estate measures (namely investment volumes and commercial real estate stock), as well as socio-economic and business indicators such as economic output, population, air connectivity and corporate presence. The analysis is underpinned by a proprietary database of key performance indicators covering 660 cities worldwide.

Globalization is propelling four cities into the realm of ‘Super City’ status – Tokyo, New York, London and Paris – an elite group that possesses a powerful combination of economic scale and influence, deep corporate bases, highly liquid real estate investment markets and large, diverse and high-quality commercial real estate stocks. These four cities wield significant economic might, particularly in the commercial real estate market. They account for nearly one-fifth of the office stock and commercial real estate investment volumes in the Global300.
