Valuation of multifunctional land use by commercial investors: a case study on the amsterdam zuidas mega-project
AbstractThe Amsterdam Zuidas area is planned to become a large multifunctional development area with a mix of offices, dwellings and facilities. As part of a broader empirical investigation, the valuation of multifunctional land use of this mega-project by a specific class of stakeholders, viz. commercial investors, is examined in this paper. We are in particular interested in the expected impact of locational characteristics on urban land rent in the area. The study is based on an extensive interview questionnaire, in which also future development scenarios and spatial externalities are investigated. The study reveals that the expectations of investors are driven by a complex set of factors. Particularly important are accessibility and image. The relative importance of multifunctionality is found to be modest.
