In Part 3, Lui Tam reviews the academic analysis of the Olympic legacy of employment and opportunities. It may seem something of a contradiction that a development process predicated on generating an employment legacy from an Olympic Games should begin by comprehensively redeveloping an area devoted to employment. However, this is what the first stage of developing the Olympic Park entailed. In 2005, at the time the London Olympic bid was won, the designated Games site was largely a place of employment. Tam explores what redevelopment and the long-term promise of regeneration meant for existing landscapes, uses, and people at that time, followed by the literature related to the employment generated in the delivery of the Games, and finally, the more limited data and commentaries on the unfolding legacy of development related to employment on the site after 2012.
