ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to identify whether the subcenters of the six metropolitan cities presented by the Urban Master Plans are actually growing as hub areas from the perspective of polycentric structure and urban development axis. To do that, the business entity density and employee density were employed to analyze whether the subcenters of the six metropolitan cities are sizable enough and their sizes are growing the extent to perform the function of a city center. This study also inquires that implementation plans reflect strategies for subcenters by analyzing relevant policies of the six metropolitan cities. The analysis on the degree of agglomeration and growth power of the six metropolitan cities reveals that the metropolitan subcenters with a low growth power have insufficient city planning. The results of the overall study indicate significant impacts on the growth of subcenters. Therefore, there is the need to develop supplementary measures to implement urban plan projects and to nurture hubs based on polycentric structure and development axis of the metropolitan cities.
