This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Interstate Freeways Attract New Office Sites," by Murray Frost and Armin K. Ludwig.

Completion of the interstate highway network in American metropolitan areas has opened a wide variety of locational options for urban land uses. New office sites have been salient among these developments. The purpose of this study is to compare Interstate radial freeway corridors with other spatial units in Omaha and six other metropolitan areas to determine their differential attraction for new office sites in the period 1970-1976. The seven metropolitan areas studied were Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Louisville, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Omaha, and San Jose.
