Nearly 1,000 enterprises from home and abroad had settled in Hongqiao Central Business District as of the third quarter of this year. One hundred of them decided to headquarter in Hongqiao CBD, according to a summit on Hongqiao CBD's headquarters value held on Dec 7.
The above activity has made "hotspot of the headquarters economy" a buzzphrase in the district this year.
"Hongqiao CBD has grown into a hub of numerous exhibitions and headquarters in a short time as a result of its convenient transportation, complete supporting facilities and efficient service, which is quite beyond my expectation," Li Zhanjun, chief researcher of China Real Estate Association, commented.
Chen Tiedong, board director of Colliers International, believes that as more and more enterprises locate their headquarters in Hongqiao CBD, its value and position in Shanghai's economic development will be greatly improved.
These experts are all optimistic about the future development of Hongqiao CBD. [Photo provided to chinadaily.com.cn]
