Public and private developers have long considered the difficulty of assembling land to be a major impediment to land development, especially in urban areas where property ownerships are fragmented. Market-led measures for land assembly can be seen as one of the solutions for the chronic land assembly problem. In this approach landowners get a density bonus if they achieve a certain size of land assembly voluntarily. However, in the literature, there is limited knowledge on their use and outcomes in cities. This article examines the experiences in using market-led measures for land assembly in two different cities in Turkey, Fatsa and Maltepe. Lessons can be extracted for other countries that intend to apply market-led measures for land assembly.
