This paper examines the characteristics of urban spatial development in Beijing and

identifies to what extent these characteristics can be attributed to the emerging land

market in Beijing as well as the impact of land policy reform. Based on the

observations of land use rights grants from 1993 to the first half of 2000 in built-up

areas of Beijing, empirical analyses illustrate that both land prices and land

development density decrease with distance from the city core. It further provides

evidence that the slope of the land rent curve also depends on land use types.

These analyses lead to the conclusion of the influence of the land market in land

development decisions and urban form. Another conclusion is that the slope of the

land rent curve and the elasticity of land-capital substitution change over time. The

former declines, as expected, since Beijing’s massive investments in transportation

reduce transportation costs, which in turn shifts the land rent curve, and the latter

rises. Both changes in land rent function and the elasticity of the land-capital

substitution point to the maturing of the Beijing land market. In addition, there are

enormous land developments outside the land market (land development on

administratively allocated land) that can significantly distort urban land use patterns

portrayed in this study.
