In Taiwan, to achieve the goal of improving urban environment and disaster prevention capacity, some urban renewal development projects could apply for additional floor area bonus and result in part of the private property turn into the privately owned public space (POPS). Certain properties have become a unique existence in the open space system. From 1980s, Taiwan government have provided incentives in exchange for more public open space through legal system, i.e. Zoning Code, Urban Renewal Act and Land Use Regulation, as a result, 483 POPS had developed from 1983 to 2013. Many local research have explored the effect of the individual POPS to the regular open space and proposed better usage and management of POPS. However, there is lack of debate about private property and the relevance of entire POPS system with open space network. Moreover, in most cases, the lack of proper and flexible design guidelines and review system could also result in poor design and limited usage due to the unwillingness of private owners. Accordingly, POPS could not serve better function to the surrounding built environment and citizens. Hence, this paper will discuss the relationship between existing POPS and public open space system based on spatial point pattern analysis, choosing Taipei City, Taiwan as a case study area. This paper will expect to provide some information for better policy of public space system in Taipei.
