Chapter 6: The interrelations between railway station and its neighbouring areas: a case study of Guangzhou Station
The chapter presents an in-depth case study of Guangzhou Rail Station on the spatial-economic evolution of its neighbouring area. A concept of the “Station Related Area” has been proposed to differentiate from the “Station Area” to explore the perspectives of spatial pattern and changes of land use over time, shaped by a dynamic mechanism. This study illustrates the role and impact of stations on station related areas. By analyzing the uniqueness and representativeness of the Guangzhou Station Area case under Chinese contexts, the chapter concludes the future development of the Guangzhou Station Area and the implications for future research.
