THE IMPACT OF RAIL RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS ON COMMERCIAL OFFICE DEVELOPMENT: THE CASE OF THE PHILADELPHIA-LINDENWOLD SPEEDLINE

This report presents the results of a case study of commercial office development in the Philadelphia metropolitan region specifically as it relates to the Philadelphia-Lindenwold rail rapid transit facility. As such, the study represents an integral, though independent, part of a wider, long range and comprehensive investigation of the Lindenwold facility, and especially its impact on urban real estate development in Camden County, New Jersey, currently underway in the Department of Regional Science at the University of Pennsylvania. Notably, the study reported herein, is one of the first known completed attempts at identifying the impact of a modern rail rapid transit system on commercial office development.
