Exploring the Impact of Public Spaces in the Economic Development of Great Cities: A Case Study of Dhaka City, Bangladesh
Public spaces are often non-statutory provisions and constituents of policy decision making within urban centres.
As a result, the physical aspects of public space is perceived as the product of the absence of a viable alternative, rather than
the finality of decision making by municipalities. This is why their availability and use changes across time and space, and
their appropriation directed towards the activities that generate the highest revenues or require the lowest costs. The
objective of this study was to examine the public space which is defined as a location that is accessible to all people, due to
its openness and the use of those spaces. The aim of the study is to determine the impact of public spaces on economic
development in great cities, and based on the data, to determine how the public spaces in Bangladesh, impact the economic
development in the city.
