Cover Story (view full-size image): This paper employs an agent-based modeling approach to capture the spatial decisions of private land developers in shaping new urban forms. By drawing on microeconomic theory, the model simulates urban growth in the Jakarta Metropolitan Area, Indonesia, under different scenarios that reflect the decision behaviors of developers. Three types of private land developers were identified based on their level of available capital and the interactions between developers and land characteristics defined through four land development stages; search, assess, acquire, and develop. The findings show that new urban areas are generated through different processes. Our study highlights the need for urban policy to regulate urban expansion. View this paper.
