In terms of m2 surfaces LA defense is the european n°1->3 millions m2 offices/600 000 m2 apartments/230 000 m2 of shops/1500 companies

Plus de 3 millions de m2 de bureaux, 600 000 m2 de logements, 230 000 m2 de commerces, 2 500 entreprises, 1 500 sièges sociaux dont ceux de 15 des 50 premières entreprises mondiales, 150 000 emplois dont 90 000 cadres : La Défense est sans conteste le numéro un des quartiers d'affaires en Europe.

Yep. In terms of available space it certainly is. However that is only 1 aspect and there are many others to take into account when calling it the Number 1 CBD in Europe.

I have to say, La Defense sticks out mainly because it is quite visionary, I haven't seen another European city that created an entire district for its enterprises.

Canary Wharf vs. La Défense

For anyone who's interested:

http://www.efinancialnews.com/story/...sus-la-defense

However, do bear in mind:
- the City of London, the main CBD of London, is many times the size of Canary Wharf;
- the West End is London's 2nd largest CBD, and is also many times the size of CW.

La Defence is great and yes visionary but it's not the only new district created just for enterprise, Canary Wharf was purposely planned and are a few others in Spain, Germany and Italy.

Investors & specialists talk about figures and surfaces.

La defense offers not the best cladding towers but a large quantity of m2 available for who want have offices & business.

La city or canary wharf are leaders for the finance in terms of transactions on market places.

But this criteria can't be taken to say it is the number 1 CBD in Europe.

Only the surface available or occupied matters.
La Defense is the european leader

What about the Square Mile in London? It has more office space than 3m sqm.

Indeed, that's why La Defense is not limited to only 1 aspect (available space) :

Quote:
With its size, the number of firms it accommodates, its easy access, the jobs it offers and its diversity of business (offices, shops and accommodation), this district is an international centre of attraction.

Over 3 million square metres of office space, 600,000 square metres of accommodation, 230,000 square metres of shops, 2,500 firms, 1,500 headquarters, including those belonging to 15 of the 50 leading global firms, and 150,000 employees, including 90,000 executives: La Défense is without question the number one district for European affairs.
Loathing : Square Mile is not a purpose-built business district.

But it is not sure at all ...

Please also remember that the real business powerhouse of Paris is the QCA (Quartier Central des Affaires) spreading over the 1, 2, 8, 9, 16 and 17th Arrondissements, with around 7 millions m² and more than 420 000 jobs.
Of course, it's not a purposely planned business district but it's clearly becoming a solely business oriented area.

Yes it is... only it's 400 years old. It has been almost pure business since the 16th century, or even earlier.

As has been every city in the World. CBD is a modern thing, in the past business and residential matters were conducted in the same place - ie a city and not specific district.

I'm sorry, but you're displaying astonishing ignorance of the history of the City of London; and you're also displaying ignorance of any normative definition of "Central Business District".

This is very impressive!
