FRUGOLI JR., Heitor. The question of centrality in São Paulo: the role of entrepreneurial associations. Rev. Sociol. Polit. [online]. 2001, n.16, pp.51-66. ISSN 0104-4478.

This article attempts to discuss a series of matters referring to the urban context of the city of São Paulo. Its aim is to determine: a) how the main private groups are organized in order to define the spatial location of the modern tertiary sector; b) how their organizations pressure public powers in order to obtain infra-structural benefits on urban equipments; c) which are the concrete answers of public powers; and d) which are the main social groups, originating in the lower classes, more affected by this struggle of interests.

Keywords : urban center; re-qualification; entrepreneurial associations; public space.
