What shape will living and working take in the future and where will this take place? Mixed-use concepts are an answer to changing living conditions in an urban context. In growing cities in China, Turkey, Russia or India, METRO PROPERTIES focuses on bringing various functions and areas of life together under one roof.
This includes the areas of retail, residential space, offices, hotels and entertainment. The combination of horizontal commercial space with residential and office space results in the development of new centres - 'cities within cities'.
Mixed-use concepts aren't just an economically successful model - in a world of increasingly flexible lifestyles, they also contribute to community building. As such, they play an important part in the urban development of modern megacities.
