Economic Value Creation in Metro Complexes: Case Study on Sadr Station Complex in Tehran

Nima Jafari, Amir Hossein Pourjohari


The main objective of this research is economic value creation methods in metro station centers with the case study of Sadr Station complex in Tehran. The research implements a descriptive approach by benefiting from the data of a cross-sectional survey which was collected by the authors. The target population included all scholars of urban development and transport academics, capitalists and directors of the station complex with the total number of 1,100 people. By using a random sampling, 285 people were surveyed with a 25-item questionnaire developed by the researchers. The results suggest priority of value creation respectively in areas of collaborative, competitive, private, governmental, and personal. The test results also showed that among the components of economic value creation (corporate, individual, competitive, governmental and private), the observed correlation was significant. According to the obtained results, development of economic value creation in station centers seems necessary.
