Abstract: 
We set out an open, monocentric city with residential structures and reflect on how changes to an amenity index affects the city. On the production side, the shock is represented by a productivity improvement and a local wage increase and on the consumption side the shock is represented by an exogenous boost to the utility of a resident's current commodity bundle. In each case the city's population, land rent and footprint expand. In the second case there is an increase in density.
