Abstract

Master-planned communities have become a valuable tool in the reshaping of suburban landscapes. The effects of implementing a well-determined master plan are evidenced by successful ventures in the United States and abroad. This study determines what effect the development of a master-planned community will have on urban planning and housing demand in Greater Metropolitan Buenos Aires, Argentina. Both quantitative and qualitative research methods are used to arrive at specific conclusions. The subject property area (SPA), the competitive market area (CMA), and the Greater Metropolitan Buenos Aires (GMBA) region, are analyzed to provide the basis of analytical research for this study. The evolution of urban planning and new community development is presented to provide a frame of reference as well as a starting point of discussion and to illustrate the local, regional, national, and international implications of developing this community.
