The Impact of Railway Station Development on Urban Dynamics: A Review of the Amsterdam South Axis Project
Abstract:In this article I focus on railway station area development and urban dynamics. I present the contributions of recent Dutch research on indirect and external effects in addition to the standard Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) framework. The research was directed mainly towards the development of the Amsterdam South Axis urban area: a major mixed land-use project in which real-estate development offices, dwellings and facilities is combined with large infrastructure projects, including among others, the development of a high-speed train station.
