A Note on the Optimal Design of an Office Building

Abstract

This study examines the economics of the optimal footprint area, atrium area, and height of an office building. We extend the work of Doiron, Shilling and Sirmans (1992) by incorporating realistic revenue and cost functions and reverting to the sufficient conditions of optimaility.
