Among
many condominium sites in Addis Ababa, Akaki Kaliti site has been identified in
this assignment. Akaki Kaliti condominium site is one of the largest housing
program project and it covers a wide range of area as compared as other
condominium sites in Addis Ababa. Due to its largeness and features, I believe
that Akaki Kaliti condominium is a right site to discuss land use variables and
transportation. This report, therefore, assesses the Akaki Kaliti housing
program project from the perspective of four land use variables (i.e., density,
diversity, design and distance) with specific consideration of transportation.

 

The
report has been structured in two sections which are further divided into
subsections. The first section entirely emphasis on detail description of the
Integrated Housing Development Program. In addition, this section has been
divided into several subsections. In the second section, assessments about
Akaki Kaliti condominium per land use variables are presented. Furthermore, in the
second section tables have been included to show the appearance of Akaki Kaliti
condominium pertaining to several features of land use variables.
