Can Space Syntax Help Us in Understanding the Intraurban Office Rent Pattern?: Accessibility and Rents in Downtown Stockholm
2008 (English)In: Journal of real estate finance and economics, ISSN 0895-5638, E-ISSN 1573-045X, Vol. 36, no 3, 289-305 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The effect of accessibility upon rent is investigated for office properties located in Downtown Stockholm. Starting from the firm's cost minimization problem, a translog hedonic model is derived. The results suggest the model has good predictive power in explaining the variation in the log of the rent. A negative rent gradient is obtained with a base approximately 90 m from the postulated focal point. It appears as if Space Syntax adds important information to the understanding of the intraurban office rent pattern.
