Abstract

This paper discusses the principles that determine firstly how cities evolve over seven phases in what I call the Affinity Factor model. Secondly, we see how Affinity Factor model may help understand how development spreads or distributes within the city. We observe how these principles impact selection of office location and how we can predict the future of developing business districts. We try to understand how house prices get influenced. Finally, based on the principles discussed, we try to work out a possible township model.
