Abstract

According to the literature, the decline of the CBD is evident in the case of high-order service functions. The AA. argue that the decentralization of these activities and the corresponding CBD decline may be neither as strong a trend nor as universal a phenomenon as certain AA. have indicated. The growth of suburban office employment may reflect a strong CBD whose economic base is becoming increasingly specialized. The decentralization is examined in a shift-share framework: the CBD of Montreal continues to be the primary locus of high-order services
