Which locations do knowledge-intensive firms choose in Munich and how do these decisions change over a ten-year period? These questions are addressed in a new article in the current issue of the journal disP - The Planning Review entitled "Linking knowledge-intensive firm locations with the urban structure of the city of Munich".
The paper analyses the locations of the largest knowledge-intensive company locations in the Functional Urban Area of Munich and Freising via a long-term analysis from 2009-2019 and characterises their spatial location requirements. The results show that central, well-equipped locations are still relevant, especially for service-intensive industries. However, new spatial priorities are also emerging beyond the classic central locations. The results are discussed against the backdrop of the changing world of work and in the context of the urban and economic development plans of the LHM Munich and show where there is still a need for spatial development.
