Abstract

A growing body of research has focused on a land use mechanism, which is the basis for making decisions and policies. Previous studies on an urban land use mechanism focused mainly on urbanization and urban sprawl, while urban renewal is often a neglected area. This research aims at analyzing land use mechanisms in urban renewal areas. The Kowloon District in Hong Kong was selected as the study area for urban renewal. Regression analysis has been applied to explore the relationships between different land use types and spatial land use factors. The relative operating characteristic (ROC) values indicate the effectiveness of regression analysis. The regression results give insight into a land use mechanism in an urban renewal area, which can be helpful input for land use management.
