This project was my Master’s Thesis completed in 2011; it outlines a process for joining contiguous lots to form a larger land parcel (i.e. land pooling/readjustment), which ultimately may serve a range of complementary redevelopment purposes including reduced land acquisition/construction cost, asset maximization and increased land efficiency – all of which are particularly important for low income urban communities in need of affordable housing. The study case highlights the most important processes (i.e. stakeholder coordination, project self-finance and institutional oversight). A series of ‘enabling and hindering’ data factors have been mapped to pinpoint feasible pilot project locations. The site location is Barangay Rizal, a neighborhood of Makati City in metro Manila, Philippines. I was able to prepare material for this project while working with Earthquakes and Megacities Initiative (EMI) in metro Manila.
