Abstract

A theory is posed with some empirical support on how the American exurban land market behaves near edge cities. The exurban land market exists beyond the built-up urban area within commuting range of urban employment and service opportunities. It responds differently to proximity to downtown, edge cities and the boundary of urban development. Relationships between the value of exurban land and these landscape features are theorised and empirically supported. Taken together, exurban land values fall with respect to distance from the boundary of urban development but, because of the disamenity influences of edge cities, at a flatter slope than suggested by monocentric land value theory. The effect of edge cities may be to push the urban field farther out than would be expected without this influence. -from Author
