anchor tenant

A pioneer tenant in a new development. A state may promote the ‘anchor’ with preferential treatments in terms of land prices, tax exemptions, infrastructure support, and administrative services, in order to persuade the downstream and upstream firms along its supply chain to follow suit (Lee and Saxenian (2008) J. Econ. Geog. 8, 2).
