Globalization of the economy has caused the development of industries and advanced services in active metropolises in the world cities network. The increase of occupation, advanced services sector rather than industrial activities, centralization and replacement of these activities in central and low population density regions and along with it transfer of heavy industries to surrounding regions are the most important spatial consequences of globalization of the economy process in metropolises. This study -based on this assumption- investigates the type of service activities and the method of their site selection in 22 regions of Tehran metropolis during a period of 8 years using workshop census (1381-1373). The results show that 20 percent or one-fifth of the workshops established in Tehran in this period is advanced services and 80 percent is activities of industrial sector. On the other hand during this 8 years, the site selection of more than 50 percent of advanced services workshops are just in four regions including 6,7,11 and 12 and there is a gradual tendency towards site selection in low density northern regions, namely 1 and 5 because of suitable access to advanced services and facilities in these regions. Therefore, as for continuation of industrial era activities attraction and low tendency to advanced services activities, prevailing spatial economy in Tehran metropolis has been industrial economy.
