Why invest in Lyon?
JLL & EY report, 2018 edition
Lyon : the european metropolis of the future
Lyon benefits from numerous assets : a strategic location in the heart of Europe, a well-organized transport network, high quality infrastructure, a strong pool of talent with more than 150,000 students (voted "best city to study in" by French students), sustained population growth, a strong focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, a quality of life recognized as among the best in Europe, while being classified as World Heritage by Unesco and recognized as the first cultural city of France (excluding Paris).
It should be noted that Lyon, a pioneering city in the field, has also put in place a true Smart City strategy to combine economic dynamism and sustainable development.
The major urban projects carried by the city (Lyon Confluence, Lyon Part-Dieu, Lyon Gerland, Carré de Soie ...) have become "life size" areas of experimentation to imagine and build new ways of living and working in the city.
At a time when technological, societal and behavioral evolutions foreshadow the evolutions of the city of tomorrow, Lyon seems possesses all the ingredients to continue its extraordinary development and to become one of the references of the metropolises of the future.
