We would like to welcome all our readers to Issue 28 of DLA Piper’s Real Estate Gazette.

The observation that “the only constant is change” (Heraclitus, c. 535–475 BC) remains as true today as it was in the sixth century. The last year has seen a number of dramatic events which look set to change the international landscape beyond recognition. However, change is not all doom and gloom; altered circumstances bring new opportunities. In this issue of the Real Estate Gazette we look at how political, demographic and digital change is impacting the real estate market in some obvious – and some less expected – ways.

This represents a movement away from traditional office spaces to a more open and collaborative environment. It has also become a global movement towards creating innovative, cost-effective and community-based workplace environments for independent, flexible or remote workers.

  • Spain: Smart cities - new real estate opportunities
    24 JUL 2017

    The term “smart city” was first used in the 1990s, with technological overtones. However, over the years, the concept has evolved to focus on the role of human capital and the relationships involved in urban development. A definition given by Giffinger et al in 2007 describes a “smart city” as “a city well performing in a forward-looking way in economy, people, governance, mobility, environmental, and living, built on the smart combination of endowments and activities of self-decisive, independent and aware citizens. Smart city generally refers to the search and identification of intelligent solutions which allow modern cities to enhance the quality of the services provided to citizens.”
