Our latest US research examines the underlying connection between commercial real estate opportunities and urban tech trends specific to New York and New Jersey.

Our analysis finds that neighbourhoods exhibiting continuous growth in millennial talent offer unique real estate opportunities to investors and technology innovators.

"It is imperative to understand the implications of New York City as a technology trailblazer and millennial magnet from a commercial property perspective," said Daniel Manware, Analyst, US Research. "We believe that with real estate trends shifting away from being predominantly finance-driven, certain neighbourhoods in New York City will become millennial magnets and top performers in Tomorrow’s World." 

While New York will remain the capital of financial transactions and discourse, our research provides a platform for investors and technology innovators to create holistic viewpoints and educated predictions of where millennials and young talent will continue to cluster in New York City.
