Abstract: In recent years, there has been greater interest by developers to develop mixed-use developments in Singapore. While this is generally in line with what building users desired, there is no study to determine if the users are satisfied with the mixed-use developments and that such developments have adequately met the needs of the users. This dissertation aims to find out the factors that make a mixed-use development successful, defined in this dissertation as meeting the needs of the users and desired by occupants. Through a survey on a local mixed-use development and case studies on local and overseas mixed-use developments, success factors and good planning and design principles are identified. The findings of this dissertation based on a relatively new local mixed-use development is that while the building users generally are satisfied with the development, they are of the view that the retail aspect can be further improved. A guideline which incorporates good planning and design principles is proposed to ensure that future mixed-use developments can be developed with the users in mind such that they will meet the needs of the users. The dissertation concludes that close collaboration and partnerships with authorities and retail management firms are important without which would hinder good design of mixed-use developments in Singapore. The dissertation is limited in scope to office-retail type of mixed-use developments and perceptions of mixed-use development by building users. It does not include the views of developers.
