Centripetal and Centrifugal Movement: Shopping Centres in Denver, USA, and Brisbane, Australia
In support of the call for international comparative analysis of commercial structure due to globalisation of commercial services, this study investigates the locational dynamics of shopping centres in Denver, USA, and Brisbane, Australia. The analysis is led by two dimensions: the centripetal and centrifugal forces for commercial activity movement and the newer-bigger-farther away hypothesis for shopping centre development. The analysis reveals several interesting similarities and dissimilarities in the shopping centre locational dynamics in Denver and Brisbane. Among the major dissimilarities is Brisbaneâ€™s ability to keep many of its central-city shopping centres from suburbanising and Denverâ€™s inability to do so. Reasons for this dissimilarity include different shopping centre development policy and property ownership patterns in the two cities.
