Urban Land Use

Gilles Duranton () and Diego Puga ()

Chapter Chapter 8 in Handbook of Regional and Urban Economics, 2015, vol. 5, pp 467-560 from Elsevier

Abstract: We provide an integrated treatment of the theoretical literature on urban land use inspired by the monocentric model, including extensions that deal with multiple endogenous business centers, various dimensions of heterogeneity, and durable housing. After presenting the theory and distilling its key empirical implications, we critically review the empirical literature on differences in prices and development across urban locations, patterns of location choices of heterogeneous households in cities, sprawl and residential decentralization, and employment decentralization.
