About this title
In virtually all of the great port cities of the developed world, the pace of urban redevelopment is being set by the social, economic and architectural transformation of harboursides and docklands, which are now emerging as high-status residential areas and attracting new industries, offices, recreational and transport facilities. This book is a worldwide analysis of why dockland revitalization has been such a widespread element in the contemporary cityscape and how urban planners and managers are reacting to the opportunities and challenges this presents. The book is divided into three parts. The first presents frameworks for analysis and charts the forces bringing about waterfront change, both local and international, and includes a chapter on modelling change. The second part considers the forms and consequences of dockland redevelopment in various contexts and includes studies of contrasting cities, ranging from Toronto to Hong Kong, and Manchester to Rotterdam. The final section examines strategic planning issues that the previous chapters raise, particularly how economic market forces can be reconciled with social and political priorities, and concludes by discussing contemporary impacts and future trends.From the Publisher:
This is the first, broad, international analysis exploring dockland revitalization and its role in the changing urban environment. Stressing processes, analysis and planning issues, it explains how urban planners and managers are reacting to the opportunities and challenges these changes represent. A major contribution to contemporary urban studies.
