This report is about the United Kingdom’s great cities beyond London. Drawing on new research and analysis, and a series of interviews with key decision makers and CBRE experts, we identify the key ingredients of city success which property market decision-makers should look out for. 

We show how city property markets are steadily recovering in the eyes of investors, occupiers and developers. We explain both the benefits and risks of the Government’s new devolution agenda, and explore how some of the key features of that agenda will affect city property markets.
