A Review of Studies on Sustainable Urban Regeneration

11 pagesPublished: June 9, 2021


Over the last few decades, many countries around the world have adopted urban regeneration to solve social problems, simulate local economy, create better environmental and cultural conditions, and enhance the city’s competitiveness. A holistic and critical review of the themes of these research, research methods, evaluation criteria of sustainable urban regeneration projects is needed for current and future research. Based on the journal and conference papers about sustainable urban regeneration in the SCI, EI and A&HCI database between 1989 and 2019, this paper presents a critical review of recent studies on sustainable urban regeneration. This review focuses on the methods universally or locally employed to evaluate the sustainability of urban regeneration projects in different contexts. The key terms concerning urban regeneration, sustainability of urban regeneration, brownfield redevelopment and urban rehabilitation are clarified. The behaviours of core stakeholders and their relationship are also explored in this review. Finally, this paper discusses the future research trends for researchers to explore the field of sustainable urban regeneration.

Keyphrases: assessment, Sustainability, urban regeneration
