Description - Edgeless Cities by Robert E. Lang
Edgeless cities are a form of sprawling development that account for the bulk of office space found outside of downtowns. This title explores America's new metropolitan form by examining the growth and spatial structure of suburban office space across the nation. It delinates two types of suburban office development - bounded and edgeless. It covers the evolving geography of office space in 13 of the countries largest markets: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington DC The book demonstrates how edgeless cities differ from traditional office areas and he provides an overview of national, regional and metropolitan office markets, covers ways to map and measure them and discusses the challenges urban policymakers and practitioners will face as this new suburban form continues to spread.
