In the era of the knowledge economy, creative talents, primarily engaged in "mental labor," have become the central element in the competitive landscape among cities. More and more cities, grounded in their unique local characteristics, view themselves as creative cities, adopting this new model to enhance urban competitiveness. Consequently, they focus on the spatial mobility and agglomeration mechanisms of creative talents, which have also emerged as a prominent research topic on the international stage. This study investigates creative talents as its primary subject, employing Urban Amenity Theory as its research perspective. Furthermore, it introduces subjective well-being as a mediating variable into the theoretical model. Employing methods such as theoretical deduction, theoretical induction, field research, systematic analysis, and a balanced emphasis on quantitative analysis, this study uncovers the causal pathways and influence effects between urban amenity and the phenomenon of creative talents' agglomeration through empirical analysis. By aligning these findings with the ongoing urban "war for talent," this study not only offers theoretical underpinnings for the development of "creative cities" but also furnishes empirical evidence supporting local governments in their efforts to attract and retain creative talents to meet the high-quality development requirements of their respective cities.
