New ULI Publication: Regenerating Older Suburbs
Urban Land Institute
The Urban Land Institute's "Regenerating Older Suburbs" brings to life the successful rebirth of ten inner-ring or first-tier suburban communities. Built as part of the post-World War II housing boom, these inner-ring suburbs are facing similar demographic changes and aging housing stock as many inner-city neighborhoods did decades ago. Given their close-in locations, these older suburbs are keen candidates for redevelopment and renewal.
"Regenerating Older Suburbs" describes the strategies and solutions used to successfully redevelop ten first-tier suburbs through detailed case studies of inner-ring suburbs experiencing significant redevelopment. The case studies shed light on a number of aspects of regeneration, including what is happening and why; what could be done better; the role of the public sector and the incentives it can offer; why private developers are active in older neighborhoods; and what can be done to improve the quality and pace of development.
The diverse case studies encompass three continents and a broad range of socioeconomic characteristics. While the primary focus is on lower- and middle-income suburbs, two wealthier suburbs are included to help illustrate the levers of public policy that have been most effective in attracting substantial, high-quality redevelopment. Also included is a study on a historically depressed suburb that is enjoying a surprising renaissance, driven in part by an artistic community that has chosen to locate there.
