Mixed-use properties are gaining prominence across Europe. Typically blending residential, commercial and cultural uses into one site, the intention is often to reimagine underutilised site, create complimentary uses and promote pedestrian flows. Mixed-use schemes are either contained in a single building or part of a wider regeneration project aiming to improve the overall fabric and appeal of a city. Across most of Europe, government policy has supported the continuation of the city centre’s role as a main location for business, retail and leisure activity, explaining the rapid evolution of mixed-use schemes in city centre locations. Paris is a great example with numerous innovative projects underway, with the objective of reinvigorating city centre living. In Rotterdam, the redevelopment of the docks has been occurring since the 1980s and now includes a variety of locally embraced uses. Interestingly, if we look at the 2019 Mercer Quality of Living Survey which ranks 231 cities globally on quality of life, we see that the top performing cities in Europe are those which have incorporated mixed-use as part of their urban development strategy, including Vienna, Zürich and Munich.
