One of Europe’s lowest crime rates, lots of sunshine, mild temperatures, a relaxing lifestyle and pace of life — all ingredients that give Lisbon a high quality of life. After an exodus to the suburbs since the 1970s which left the historic center largely abandoned, the Portuguese capital is once again slowly attracting new residents. They are mostly upper-middle class singles and many foreigners, mostly from other European countries.

But which are the best neighborhoods to live in Lisbon? The answer will depend on who you ask and what you’re looking for. We’ve analyzed the main central districts with all their positives and negatives to help you make a decision on where to settle in Lisbon.

I was recently asked what my primary objective would be through the first 90 days working with a potential client. My response was simple: ensure that real estate is an integral part of corporate strategy. While it seems easy enough, the main reason real estate is either underrepresented or ignored in strategic discussions is that it requires considerable collaboration. Too often, strategy is set prior to engagement of the corporate real estate department, but top companies are able to use the intersection of many corporate functions to drive the strategic vision. While CRE may not always have a seat at the strategic table, the seven strategies below provide a guide to allowing real estate to become a competitive advantage of your core business.
A five-star hotel scheduled to open by the end of 2015 is being built at the doorstep of the Alfama district, near Campo das Cebolas. It’s on number 66 of Rua Cais de Santarém, by the Arco de Jesus gateway, where there’s the coat-of-arms of the noble Mascarenhas family on the edge of a ruined palace from the 17th century. The hotel will result from the reconversion of the old palace and a new construction, and will be a museum hotel. That’s because during the current works around the old building there have been some significant archaeological finds.
