This paper has two aims. The first one is to build a generalization of the doubly-constrained spatial interaction model, in order to account for sensitiveness of demand to accessibility and congestion and for possible multiple interacting activities. In Section 2 it is shown how this can be done by keeping an extremal representation for the model, which is closely related to the Neuburger's consumer surplus maximizing principle. The second aim is to embed the model developed in Section 2 in a multiactivity optimal location problem, and to develop operational tools to solve the resulting mathematical programming problems. This subject is treated in Section 3. Section 4 is devoted to the discussion of three possible applications: the urban system, the health care system, and the retail system.
