From: [Why Corporate America Is Leaving the Suburbs for the City](http://nyti.ms/2adP5Rn):
>_We wanted energy, vibrancy and diversity, and to accelerate a change in our culture by moving downtown._
>_We want to begin a process of strategically removing more highly paid, legacy employees who can’t commit 12 hours a day to our company and replacing them with younger folks we can take advantage of._
The move to forgo the addition of parking spaces in these new city HQs and encourage the use of mass transit is also interesting, given the [current state](http://www.salon.com/2015/03/01/american_mass_transit_is_dying/) [of mass transit systems](http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/BART-shutdown-underscores-aging-system-s-6916061.php) [in America](http://thehill.com/policy/transportation/289278-dc-metro-proposes-permanent-earlier-closing-times-on-subway). Will these corporations be kicking in greenbacks for infrastructure/capacity improvement? Methinks not.
Remember, kids, these are soulless, giant, multinational corporations that place “shareholder value” over **everything else**. Also, remember that you’ll be a “legacy” worker someday, too.
Hopefully some startup will jump in to buy up all the forthcoming empty suburban campus spaces and turn them into indoor farms.
