A Really Dreadful Article
Wikipedia is usually far better than this. Virtually all of the references to "largest CBD" or any other rankings, whether world, international or national need to be removed. There are no criteria and there is a paucity of data (such as employment).
Why most of tall buildings are concentrated in CBD?
Building high is due to lack of land and it is cheaper...I think

Several sentences don't make sense at all. In Italy, even in larger cities like MIlan, financial institutions are clustered in more than one district, as they congregate together in available sites AMONG the old city itself. Therefore there is no CENTRAL business district, it is not unique, and it can be everywhere in a city (certainly not at its very centre, as there are usually piazzas and other social spaces).
Also, its association with tall buildings is mainly an American concept. Skyscrapers in the City of London came way later than in North America. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:40, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
- I agree with what you wrote about Italy, but I disagree with your conclusion. The existence of a business district does not require that all the financial institution are located there, it is just a place that was designed to host financial institutions (as well as companies headquarters, national agencies, etc.) and does host a significant number of them -- not necessarily all. Besides, I think this is valid everywhere, not only for Italy.
- OK for the rest
