The Mid-urban Realm

The Mid-urban Realm

(p.97) Chapter 5 The Mid-urban Realm

Nicholas A. Phelps

Oxford University Press

This chapter continues with the contribution of the suburban matrix to the economies of many nations. The term suburb is one that is imbued with the stasis associated with dwelling in a place and yet suburbs are charged with a greater sense of flux than this may suggest. The chapter looks more closely at the heavily urbanized corridors that exist between major cities. It explores the evidence for the economic importance of megalopolis in the US, but also the zwischenstadt in Europe and desakota regions in Asia. It then goes on to look at the numerous different retail, office, airport, and science park enclaves that make up this mid-urban realm.

Keywords:   megalopolis, zwischenstadt, desakota regions, airports, office campuses, retail malls, science parks
