Creating and capturing value around transport nodes
This case study is based on an existing booklet, Creating and Capturing Value Around Transport Nodes published by the South African Cities Network (SACN), the Training for Township Renewal Initiative (TTRI) and National Treasury. The booklet draws on prior research on value capture around transport nodes that was commissioned by Urban LandMark and conducted by African Development Economic Consultants (ADEC). The content of the case study is not presented here. The existing booklet needs to be used in conjunction with this sheet. At transport interchanges the demand for land, and therefore the value of land, is heightened and additional value is created. Opportunities for capturing that value for the purposes of development in the area are thus maximised at transport interchanges and should be explored and understood.
This resource is part of a larger collection of case studies developed by Urban LandMark to translate research findings into learning materials.
