The study addresses BART's effects on the three-county BART service area office construction industry. Building permit data for new and rehabilitated offices throughout the three-county BART area were compiled for the period from 1960 through early 1977. Eighteen-year trends in regional and local office patterns were analyzed and specific office construction industry hypotheses were investigated. The hypotheses addressed specific issues of BART effects on regional office patterns, local office location shifts to BART station areas, and the timing of BART-induced changes in office location patterns. Key informants were interviewed to supplement the building permit data analysis. Information from the interviews provided insight into office location decisions and aided the interpretation of the building permit data.
