All top cities have urban design plans

"I reviewed “Top 10 cities” from four business magazines......Regardless of their size and regional settings, there is a common theme among cities making the “best cities” lists: place-making is a priority. They are cities that plan for and invest in quality for the entire city. Their downtown and neighborhood places are connected physically and programmatically, providing a high quality of life demanded by people who start and run businesses—particularly the creative types that create and grow small businesses."
