A new report places London at the top of the list of Europe’s most dynamic cities. What is this based upon?
Savill’s Investment Management analysed cities across Europe, using six categories:
1. Innovation
2. Inspiration
3. Inclusion
4. Interconnection
5. Investment
6. Infrastructure
Despite the uncertainty created by Brexit and the current political climate, London is predicted to remain a leading city during the long term. This is partly due to the London infrastructure plan 2050.
The London Infrastructure Plan 2050 is the first ever attempt to identify, prioritise and cost London’s future infrastructure to 2050, given London’s growth. Costing around £1trn, services such as:
• Transport
• Green infrastructure
• Digital connectivity
• Energy
• Water
• Waste
5 Most Dynamic Cities in Europe:
1. London
2. Paris
3. Cambridge
4. Amsterdam
5. Berlin

Kiran Patel, chief investment officer at Savills Investment Management, said: “Europe’s most dynamic cities are future-proofing themselves by creating environments that encourage the growth of a ‘knowledge economy,’ which will increasingly drive wealth creation.
“The report shows that size isn’t everything: while some ‘supercities’ such as London and Paris are consolidating their already dominant positions, smaller cities such as Cambridge, Edinburgh, Dublin and Stockholm are well positioned to grow in influence over the coming years.”
“Dynamic cities embrace global mobility,” says Louise Chilcott, Global Move and Relocation specialist from BTR International. “If your organisation would like to move people to or from these locations, we can help ensure that their relocation is as stress-free as possible.”
