Fewer and less diversified businesses but a trend towards catching up

The commercial framework of neighbourhoods included in the Paris City Urban Cohesion Policy shows specific characteristics compared with Paris as a whole: lower density, a greater number of vacant premises (12% compared with 9%), more “alternative type premises” such as wholesalers, medical activities (20% compared with 16%). 

The study brings to light recent commercial dynamics showing a trend of businesses becoming revitalised mainly through taking advantage of vacant premises: +19 establishments opening per year, that is twice as many as in Paris, as well as +42 commercial activities with larger surface areas per year.

Similarly, although they may be less present in priority neighbourhoods, certain specialised food businesses increased more quickly than in Paris during the period 2014-2017.
