Abstract

There is a growing body of literature that recognizes the importance of sustainability in contemporary cities and societies. Sustainable urban regeneration plays a vital role in city development. This research aims to understand whether what is theorized in the literature on sustainability has empirical effects on cities and specifically on urban regeneration. Considering this purpose, this paper showcases—through comparative analysis—four best practices of urban regeneration and the impacts these processes develop in the three sustainable pillars: environmental, economic and social. In conclusion, this paper is conceived as an opportunity to discuss theoretical and operational aspects for the development of future sustainable cities and we hope that this research will contribute to a deeper understanding of sustainable urban regeneration.
