“Public Land around Transportation for Sustainable Finance and Urbanism: Hong Kong, Singapore, and Mainland China”
By Jin Murakami, Ph.D.
Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, City University of Hong Kong

[Abstract] While transportation infrastructure has been seen as a “backbone” in Asian city-states’ territorial development strategies, public land administration has been playing an even more pivotal role in achieving their sustainable finance and urbanism under state leasehold systems. Despite its practical importance, there is still a paucity of empirical research on public land transactions around transportation facilities across Asian city-states. This research presents how selected Asian city-states successfully or unsuccessfully coordinate public land leases together with mega-transportation infrastructure projects from both financial and geographical perspectives. This presentation also covers some figures and preliminary analysis on private (non-residential) property transactions and real estate investment trusts (H-REITs) in guiding the World’s densest urbanization of Hong Kong and stresses the importance of strategic public-private land coordination in shaping Japan’s “compact cities” in competitive and sustainable ways.
