The aim of this paper is to analyze the spatial changes in the Dijon urban area (COMADI) by studying in particular the new tendencies of localization of the high order producer services. Our results display a multicentric structure of the COMADI which exhibits several employment poles. Not only the economic composition of these poles differs between the central pole and the peripheral ones but this composition changes over the study period (1990;1999). New localization logics appear for the high order services: if the historical center remains specialized in financial activities, insurance and real estate (FIRE), the other producer services are more likely to be localized in the periphery. A distinction has to be made between the two peripheral poles: the South pole is oriented toward industrial activities and the North one is more a multifunctional pole. / L'objectif de cette recherche est d'étudier les mutations existant au sein de la configuration urbaine de la Communauté de l'Agglomération Dijonnaise, à travers notamment les nouvelles logiques de localisation des services supérieurs. Nous mettons alors en évidence la constitution de différents pôles d'emplois au sein de la COMADI, dont la composition économique diffère selon qu'il s'agit du pôle central ou des pôles périphériques, mais évolue aussi au cours de la période d'étude (1990-1999). Nous montrons que les tendances de localisation des activités de services supérieurs changent et se diversifient : si le centre historique reste spécialisé dans les activités financières, d'assurances et immobilières, les activités de services supérieurs aux entreprises tendent à se localiser davantage en périphérie. Une distinction est observée entre les deux pôles périphériques de la COMADI : au Sud, la constitution d'un pôle dédié aux activités industrielles et au Nord, la formation d'un pôle multifonctionnel.
