Beyond Beer, Bread and Bicycles: The Industrial Return To the City -
On the West Coast, expect to see these urban industrial companies locate in Vancouver BC's South False Creek and Strathcona neighborhoods, Seattle's Georgetown and SoDo, Portland's Central East Side, and south and east of LA's Arts District. That industry has already gone between downtown LA and LAX, with SpaceX locating on Rocket Rd. in the industrial suburb of Hawthorne.

Tech job growth is shifting from cities to metro regions and the suburban periphery - City Journal
If one looks at data, not press releases, a more nuanced picture emerges, with much of the fastest growth—including in tech—shifting dramatically not to the elite, dense urban centers but to more sprawling regions and the suburban periphery.

Sears, which helped shape a nation's shopping habits, was also a pioneer of the reverse commute - Chicago Tribune
Sears was not the first big company to set up camp in a suburban office park — Motorola, Ameritech, Siemens and Pfizer had all gone before it. But it was one of the largest, and the move from downtown prompted innovations in regional transportation planning.

The Fastest-Growing Suburbs in the United States -®
Americans are falling in love with the ’burbs again. The longstanding romance cooled a bit after the 2008 financial crisis, but as cash makes its way back into personal savings accounts, folks are again indulging their instinctual urge to grab their own piece of the national dream—front and back yard included, thank you very much.

As Office Parks Empty, Towns Turn Vacancies Into Opportunities - The New York Times
Suburban office parks have lost their luster for a variety of reasons, including a growing preference among younger workers for life in more dynamic urban centers than in sometimes staid and sleepy suburbs. And the rapid pace of technological advancement has made the need for many clerical and processing jobs and the real estate to house those workers increasingly obsolete.

US population disperses to suburbs, exurbs, rural areas, and “middle of the country” metros - Brookings
Newly released census data for the first seven years of this decade signal a resumption of the population dispersal that was put “on hold” for a good part of the post-Great Recession period. The Census Bureau’s annual county and metropolitan area estimates through 2017 reveal a revival of suburbanization and movement to rural areas along with Snow Belt-to-Sun Belt population shifts. In addition, the data show a new dispersal to large- and moderate-sized metro areas in the middle of the country—especially in the Northeast and Midwest. If these shifts continue, they could call into question the sharp clustering of the nation’s population—in large metropolitan areas and their cities—that characterized the first half of the 2010s.

Tech's New Hotbeds: Cities With Fastest Growth In STEM Jobs Are Far From Silicon Valley -
The most recent data on STEM jobs – in science, technology, engineering or mathematics – suggests that tech jobs, with some exceptions, are shifting to smaller, generally more affordable places.

What we may be witnessing, in fact, is a third turning in the tech world. The initial phase, in the 1950s, was mostly suburban – dominated by the still-powerful Bay Area, Boston and Southern California – and was heavily tied to aerospace and defense. The second phase, now coming to a close, refocused tech growth in two hot spots, the Bay Area and Washington's Puget Sound, and largely involved social media, search and digital applications for business services.

The third tech turning, now in its infancy, promises greater dispersion to other markets, some with strong tech backgrounds, some with far less.

The Urban Revival Is an Urban Myth, and the Suburbs Are Surging -
he past decade has seen a gusher of books arguing for and detailing the supposed ascendency of dense urban cores, like the inimitable Edward Glaeser’s influential Triumph of the City: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier, and Happier, and about the ‘burbs as the slums of the future, abandoned by businesses and young people, like Leigh Gallagher’s The Death of Suburbia: Where the American Dream Is Moving.

But as we show in Infinite Suburbia, the new book we co-edited, the vast majority of American economic and demographic growth continues to take place there.

Where People Will Want to Be: “Surban” Communities - Urban Land Magazine
Despite the continued revival of urban downtowns, the suburbs will draw at least 80 percent of the coming wave of new households as younger families seek urban amenities combined with more kid-friendly housing and good schools typically associated with the suburbs, says the report, prepared for ULI’s Terwilliger Center for Housing by John Burns Real Estate Consulting (which coined the term surban).

Why Corporate America Is Leaving the Suburbs for the City - The New York Times
For decades, many of the nation’s biggest companies staked their futures far from the fraying downtowns of aging East Coast and Midwestern cities. One after another, they decamped for sprawling campuses in the suburbs and exurbs.

Now, corporate America is moving in the other direction.

In June, McDonald’s joined a long list of companies that are returning to downtown Chicago from suburbs like Oak Brook, Northfield and Schaumburg.

GE part of a national move away from big, suburban office parks - The CT Mirror
When General Electric first suggested that it might pull its corporate headquarters out of Connecticut, in June of 2015, the company’s rationale appeared to be taxes and the business climate. But when it made the actual announcement in January that it would move to Boston, the message had changed.

Credit the knowledge worker with the rise of the corporate campus.

Innovation Districts Appear in Cities as disparate as Montreal and London - Brookings Institution
For years, corporate campuses like Silicon Valley were known for innovation. Located in suburban corridors that were only accessible by car, these places put little emphasis on creating communities where people work, live and go out. But now, as the economy emerges from the recession, a shift is occurring where innovation is taking place.

Does Human Capital Tend to Cluster in Center Cities or the Suburbs? - The Atlantic Cities
Most studies of the role of human capital in regional economic growth track its effects on and across metro regions. But metros vary widely in size, shape, and spatial and demographic compositions; human capital doesn't always cluster in the same places at the same densities. The revitalization of the urban center in cities like New York, San Francisco, Boston, and others has fueled in-migrations of more skilled and affluent people. Other cities, like Los Angeles and Detroit, still suffer from the proverbial "hole in the donut" effect, with their more educated, higher income populations spread out across their suburbs while their urban centers lag.
