Dynamic Cities

Savills Investment Management's analysis identifies and ranks the top 40 European dynamic cities using 6 categories


Overall Rank

  • Overall Rank

  • Infrastructure

    Cities are reliant on physical and digital Infrastructure, and sustainable growth requires seamless transportation of people and information. Infrastructure is especially vital to energy, sanitation, transportation and information transfer.
  • Interconnection

    Cities that are well-connected physically, virtually, globally and locally foster and promote enterprise and encourage growth. Successful cities of the future need seamless transportation of both people and information.
  • Inclusion

    Inclusion, whether defined by culture, ethnicity, religion, age, ability, gender, sexuality or any other demographic, encourages diversity, benefiting economic growth through a wide array of experiences, skills and perspectives.
  • Inspiration

    Inspiration prompts creativity that spurs the formation of new ideas. Often derived from interactions between people with different backgrounds, localised real estate price growth can be linked to the presence of creative groups.
  • Innovation

    Innovation fosters the creation of new ideas, methods or products and supports commercial real estate by future proofing a city. It attracts new firms and pools of talented individuals and can lead to cities becoming new technology hubs.
  • Investment

    Investment can be measured through a series of wealth indicators, including current real estate Investment activity, the pipeline under construction and the pool of officially green-rated buildings that help future proof a city's building stock.
