Formatted abstract
This paper discusses the role of large-scale integrated master-planned projects. The Central Corridor project in Munich, Germany is used as a case study. Munich's Central Corridor urban redevelopment is now reaching its mature phases, with many of the individual 'transit-oriented development' style precincts in this 8 km east-west axis now either completed or under construction. The blend of mass transit infrastructure, mixed-use development, and the delivery of urban design and public realm upgrades represents an example in which many of the 'theories' of transit-oriented development have actually been effectively delivered. In this sense, Munich offers an example of translating 'goals and rhetoric' into implemented outcomes. Findings from Munich's approach to planning, infrastructure and major projects are broadened into recommendations for other cities.
