Hey there, I'm currently pursuing an MA in Geography & Environmental Studies, and am at that stage where I must decide a thesis topic. The topic that I am most interested in studying thus far is comparing the resale value of buildings designed for corporate branding purposes (in the form of "logo buildings" like those seen occupied by Mcdonald's, Pizza Hut, etc.) to nearby available commercial property. My impression is that these buildings are likely less desirable for reuse (lower property value [adjusted for size], longer time unoccupied) than the other forms of available commercial property nearby.
The problem is that I cannot find ANY information about this topic online. Can anyone lead me to some good sources? I don't even know how to search for similar papers, because I'm not sure what the exact term for these buildings are. Even so, I have scanned online for at least an hour and a half, and have found squat. If anyone would be willing to help, it would be greatly appreciated.
