New research paper charts Edinburgh’s continued economic evolution

TFT’s latest research paper – ‘The role of property in delivering Edinburgh’s economic potential’ – is published today.

In common with cities across the globe, Edinburgh is seeing economic change brought about by the continued evolution in the interrelated areas of technology, corporate structures and working practices. The paper considers how the very particular characteristics of Edinburgh make it well placed to capitalise on these global forces of economic change. It also highlights how success depends on delivering scale and how Edinburgh’s commercial property market must deliver this scale if the city is to keep pace with the pressures of economic success.
