Resumo
This work investigates the determinants of urban land use for the city of Recife, Brazil. Using a microdata of 98,198 individual parcels and a locally weighted multinomial logit, we show that there is considerable local spatial effects, which indicates that parametric approaches may be inadequate in an intra-urban context. Additionally, some general patterns of land use are identified: transport infrastructures (which include main avenues, roadways and subway stations) tend to attract commercial activities, while natural amenities (including the public open areas, the beach and the river) tend to encourage residential development. Finally, it is evidenced that, on average, the probability of unimproved lots is higher in areas near the city historical center and the verticalization is greater in areas near th e city center and to the natural amenities.
