Abstract: Changchun has experienced many changes in housing price compared with other provincial capital cities in China. This paper examined the spatial pattern of housing price and its driving factors in Changchun City by the aid of spatial interpolation method and GIS technology. The results showed that the general spatial pattern of housing price in Changchun shows a series of circle layers with two cores in the centre. One core is located near Changchun Zoological and Botanical Garden and the other is located near the South Lake Square. The second-level circle layer of housing price covers the central areas of the city, including the area near South Lake and parts of the Yitong River. The spatial change rates of housing price in different directions are much different. Housing price declines much faster in the northeast-southwest direction than that in the southeast-northwest direction. Two regional housing price centers are found in the western and southern parts of the city. Several factors influenced the spatial pattern of Changchun City, such as residential environment, urban development strategy, public transportation services, land use and the income level of the main consumers. According to the development strategy of Changchun, the southern, western and northeast parts of the city will experience a rapid development in the near future, which will make the real estate market flourish. Based on the research, several advices are given to optimize the spatial structure of real estate development in Changchun City. The southern area of the city has better infrastructure conditions, thus high level of ecological community is suggested. In the northeastern part, it is much suitable to develop large areas of ecological community by the side of the North Lake Wetland Park; in the western and northern area, a combination of low and middle level housing should be developed after the large areas of slum clearance.
