Title: A Real Estate Strategic Model to Attract High Tertiary Offices Location
Issue Date: 2002
Abstract: In this paper it is proposed the definition and implementation of an integrated policyof local and municipal management, meant to attract high tertiary sector activities toinner-city locations, and to take advantage of its direct and induced effects upon thedevelopment of the local urban economies.The model proposed is based upon a deep reflection about the interdependenciesbetween the spatial structure and the sustained development. Sustainability isapprehended in a long-range planning perspective, taking special care about therelationships between different urban variables (accessibility, public investment, realestate features, planning rules), institutional co-ordination, public participation andinvolvement, and monitoring of some urban indicators behaviour.A sustained development, applied to a city, is the ability of the urban area and itsregion to continue to function at levels of quality of life desired by the community,satisfying the current societal needs, without restricting the options available to thepresent and future generations, and without causing adverse impacts inside andoutside the urban boundary (Brundtland Report, World Commission on Environmentand Development, 1987; Rio de Janeiro, First International Conference on UrbanRegeneration and Sustainability Conference, 2000).It is emphasised the importance of the inter-relationships between the planningprocess and urban economics, as well as the active performance of municipalpowers in urban land use regulation, guidance, co-ordination and control. It isexamined the way land use municipal planning influences the Real Estate Market, asa complex inter-related system involving different agents and their strategies, theadministrative framework, the urban planning process and municipal engineering, aswell as the way the Real Estate Market influences the Municipal Planning process.The model proposed is beginning to be implemented in the Oporto city (Portugal).
