The effect of accessibility on retail rents - testing integration value as a measure of geographic location Olof Netzell, Real Estate Economics, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm Spacescape AB

Morphological map of the urban area under study Integration values Cover the public area with sight-lines (axial lines) Convert the axial map into a mathematical graph

Integration values Mean depth of a node = mean number of (minimum) steps from a node to all other nodes

Interpretation of integration values Few turns to reach other street segments = high integration values Integration value can be defined up to a certain number of steps/turns

Hypothesis Integration values correlated with pedestrian traffic Can integration values explain retail rents? Regress retail rents on integration values

Data Integration values of streets in Stockholm Survey to shops asking about their location and rental contracts

The regression Dependent variable: Rent per square meter ”Main” explanatory variables (expected sign): - Integration value (+) - Distance to CBD (-) Control variables variables (expected sign): Proportion of area that is shop area (+) Area (?) Shop located in mall, dummy (+) Not indexed rent, dummy (+?) Turnover based rent, dummy (+) Property tax included in rent, dummy (+) New shop, dummy (+) Discount on rent for parts of the contract period, dummy (+) Shop not on street level, dummy (-)

Morphological map of the urban area under study Integration values Cover the public area with convex spaces

Integration values Axial map Draw sight-lines (axial lines) that cross all convex spaces

Integration values Convert the axial map into a mathematical graph

Example Hillier 1996

Integration values Mean depth of a node = mean number of (minimum) steps from a node to all other nodes Relative asymmetry = mean depth standardized to the interval 0-1

is the RA of a standardized node in a standardized graph of size L Integration values RA depends on the number of nodes Real relative asymmetry Main component: mean depth
