Thus, to examine the in-city location decision of the firms, it is critical to differentiate these subsectors or to clearly state which subsector the research refers to. Hutton (2000, 2004) found that the creative firms involved in top design tend to locate in the CBD; the average ones are around fringe of the CBD; the service sectors in creative industries tend to locate around the urban fringe; and the technological designers usually settle in the suburban areas. By studying the locational behaviour of the new industry, Vang (2007) uncovers that these businesses tend to cling to corresponding agencies such as government offices or sports stadiums for instant information access.

Different from traditional industries, creative industries within the creative clusters derive positive externality not only from specialisation in particular industries and occupations but also from diversities arising from the city itself (Lorenzen and Frederiksen 2008). As a result, the “soft infrastructure” or the relational assets associated with economically successful networks, such as trust, reciprocity, exchange of ideas and share of economic risks, are generated (Amin 2003). These positive externalities, in turn, form the attractive factors that influence the locational decision of the firms and the workers.
