Abstract and Keywords

This article provides an overview of the real estate development industry and evaluates its connection to urban planning. It reviews principal approaches used to study the real estate industry and explains the concept of development rhythms that encapsulate the unevenness of development over time. The article explains that the real estate development industry has not come to occupy an important position in urban planning because of the preference of urban scholars for social, political, and cultural issues. It also examines the workings of the core agents in the development process, real estate developers.

Keywords: real estate development, urban planning, development rhythms, real estate developers, development process
