The Structure of Chinese Urban Land Prices: Estimates from Benchmark Land Price Data

The Structure of Chinese Urban Land Prices: Estimates from Benchmark Land Price Data Taking the recent benchmark land prices published by the Chinese city governments, the paper estimates commercial and residential land price curves of Chinese cities using cross-sectional data, controlling for urban population size and income level. The urban land leasing price–distance relationship is estimated based on the argument that monocentric urban structure is representative for Chinese cities. Both population size and income level are found to positively affect urban land price and price–distance gradients. Commercial land prices are higher than residential land prices except in suburbs or outer central urban areas, where the land prices of different uses converge. In most situations, commercial use price gradients are larger than those of residential use. The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics Springer Journals
