Business park

A business park or office park is an area of land in which many office buildings are grouped together.

Business parks are often developed in suburban locations where land and building costs are cheaper. They also tend to be located near motorways or main roads for easy access.


The impact of business parks on surrounding areas and communities has been criticized:

  • Large gaps between urbanized zones, increasing the suburban sprawl.
  • The appearance of the buildings.[1]
  • Obsolescence, vacancy, and disrepair.[2]
