FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS OF JOINT DEVELOPMENT FOR TRANSIT STATIONS IN THE DETROIT AREA

The concept of Joint Development(JD) embodies various forms of public/private sector coordination relative to physical, fiscal, and institutional aspects of transit station development. The objective of this study is to analyze the feasibility of joint development in conjunction with transit station area planning in the Detroit area where the planning of a high-level transit system is underway. The report is organized in three parts. In the first part, the basic concepts of JD are initially presented with a brief state-of-the-art review and a discussion of opportunities, incentives, and constraints. In the second part, the feasibility of joint development in the Detroit area is examined relative to the legal, institutional, and fiscal framework. The development and application of an analytic technique for prioritizing station locations based upon development potential is also presented in Part two. The last part of the report provides the conclusions and recommendations, along with a series of guidelines that may be applied for planning joint development studies in transit stations in other urban areas.
