Another style of reform — imposed by the state for reasons of aesthetics and efficiency — could be said to have begun in , with the recruitment of Baron Haussmann by Louis Napoleon for the redevelopment of Paris. This process is also carried out in rural areas, referred to as village renewal, though it may not be exactly the same in practice. In some cases, renewal may result in urban sprawl when city infrastructure begins to include freeways and expressways. Urban renewal has been seen by proponents as an economic engine and a reform mechanism, and by critics as a mechanism for control.
Though it may bring more wealth to communities, it may also edge out its preexisting residents. Some redevelopment projects have been failures, including the Kelo case , in which the U. Supreme Court upheld the taking by a 5 to 4 vote, but where nothing was built on the taken property. Many cities link the revitalization of the central business district and gentrification of residential neighborhoods to earlier urban renewal programs.
The goal of urban renewal evolved into a policy based less on destruction and more on renovation and investment, and today is an integral part of many local governments, often combined with small and big business incentives. Until , the displaced owners and tenants received only the constitutionally-mandated "just compensation" specified in the Fifth Amendment to the U. This measure of compensation covered only the fair market value of the taken property, and omitted compensation for a variety of incidental losses like, for example, moving expenses, loss of favorable financing and notably, business losses, such as loss of business goodwill.
In the s the federal government and state governments enacted the Uniform Relocation Assistance Act which provides for limited compensation of some of these losses. However the Act denies the displaced land owners the right to sue to enforce its provisions, so it is deemed an act of legislative grace rather than a constitutional right.
Historically, urban redevelopment has been controversial because of such practices as taking private property by eminent domain for "public use" and then turning it over to redevelopers free of charge or for less than the acquisition cost known as "land write-down". Thus, in the controversial Connecticut case of Kelo v. In the s, the Argentine government decided to build a new residential and commercial district to replace city's old port and docks.
More than 50 skyscrapers have been built in the last 20 years. Puerto Madero is now Buenos Aires' most expensive and exclusive neighborhood. The project aims to redevelop the port area, increasing the city center attractiveness as a whole and enhancing the city's competitiveness in the global economy. In the French colonial period, the entire city of Marrakesh - the city inside the defensive walls - was razed and redeveloped, except for the preservation of mosques, madrassas, and funerary memorials. The preserved madrassas include buildings erected as caravanserai.
The history of Singapore's urban renewal goes back to the time period surrounding the Second World War. Before the war, Singapore's housing environment had already been a problem. The tension of both infrastructure and housing conditions were worsened by the rapidly increasing number of the Singapore population in the s. As a consequence of the war and the lack of economic development, between the s to the s, the previous evil of housing conditions continued to happen. As much as , squatters were placed in the Singapore during the s. It was caused by the movement of migrants, especially from peninsular Malaysia and the baby boom.
Since the establishment of the Republic of Singapore , urban renewal has been included in the part of the national improvement policy that was urgently put in action. Before that, the master plan had already been designed to solve the city problems.
However, due to the lack of urban planning experts caused by the deficiency of professional staff, criticism came from many urban practitioners. The professional team recommended by the United Nations then was asked by the government to cope with the urban renewal matters and its redevelopment plan in Based on the UN assistance report, two pilot developments were initiated in the end of by the government.
These redevelopments then led to the success of Singapore's urban renewal because the government could provide sufficient amount of public housing and business areas. The most recent project is Paya Lebar Quarter. This will be a centrally located international mixed-use development and a key catalyst to the URA masterplan to regenerate Paya Lebar. In the establishment of urban renewal programmes, some difficulties were experienced by the PAP government. The obstacles came from the resistance of people who used to live in the slums and squatters.
It was reported by Singapore newspapers that those people were reluctant to be replaced.
This became the major problems of s redevelopment schemes. Another problem was that the government had to purchase the private land owned by the middle and upper society to make the land vacant and be used for redevelopment.
From the s onwards, the terrible conditions of the urban poor in the slums of London began to attract the attention of social reformers and philanthropists, who began a movement for social housing. The first area to be targeted was the notorious slum called the Devil's Acre near Westminster. This new movement was largely funded by George Peabody and the Peabody Trust and had a lasting impact on the urban character of Westminster. They are one of the earliest large-scale philanthropic housing developments in London.
Angela Burdett-Coutts, 1st Baroness Burdett-Coutts funded an experimental social housing estate, among the first of its kind, on the corner of Columbia Road and Old Pye Street now demolished.
James's Park. What remained of the Devil's Acre on the other side of Victoria Street was cleared and further Peabody estates were built after the Cross Act of Like many of the social housing estates, the Abbey Orchard Estate was built following the square plan concept.
In Mexico , Tenochtitlan was the capital of the Aztec empire , built on an island in Lake Texcoco in what is now the Federal District in central Mexico. The region contains both the capital and the northern metropolitan region of China. Nelson, John D. G46 It was not until the Renaissance and the enormous strengthening of all central governments, from city-states to the kings of France , characteristic of that epoch could urban planning advance. The city and its district are located in the Central-West region of the country, along a plateau known as Planalto Central. P43H37
Blocks of flats were built around a courtyard, creating a semi-private space within the estate functioning as recreation area. The courtyards were meant to create a community atmosphere and the blocks of flats were designed to allow sunlight into the courtyards. The blocks of flats were built using high-quality brickwork and included architectural features such as lettering , glazing , fixtures and fittings. The estates built in the area at the time were considered model dwellings and included shared laundry and sanitary facilities, innovative at the time, and fireplaces in some bedrooms.
The design was subsequently repeated in numerous other housing estates in London. State intervention was first achieved with the passage of the Public Health Act of through Parliament. The Act focused on combating filthy urban living conditions that were the cause of disease outbreaks. It required all new residential construction to include running water and an internal drainage system and also prohibited the construction of shoddy housing by building contractors.
The London County Council was created in as the municipal authority in the County of London and in the Old Nichol in the East End of London was declared a slum and the Council authorized its clearance and the rebuilding of an area of some acre 6.
The slum clearance began in and included houses inhabited by 5, people. The LCC architects designed 21 and Rowland Plumbe two of 23 blocks containing between 10 and 85 tenements each. A total of 1, tenements, mostly two or three-roomed, were planned to accommodate 5, persons. The project was hailed as setting "new aesthetic standards for housing the working classes" and included a new laundry, shops, and 77 workshops.
Churches and schools were preserved. Building for the project began in and it was opened by the Prince of Wales in The Tudor Walters Committee Report into the provision of housing and post-war reconstruction in the United Kingdom, was commissioned by Parliament as a response to the shocking lack of fitness amongst many recruits during the War; this was attributed to poor living conditions, a belief summed up in a housing poster of the period "you cannot expect to get an A1 population out of C3 homes".
The report's recommendations, coupled with a chronic housing shortage after the First World War led to a government-led program of house building with the slogan 'Homes for Heroes'. Act which introduced the new concept of the state being involved in the building of new houses. With the onset of the Great Depression in , increased house building and government expenditure was used to pull the country out of recession.
The Housing Act of gave local councils wide-ranging powers to demolish properties unfit for human habitation or that posed a danger to health, and obligated them to rehouse those people who were relocated due to the large scale slum clearance programs. Cities with a large proportion of Victorian terraced housing — housing that was no longer deemed of sufficient standard for modern living requirements — underwent the greatest changes. Over 5, homes 25, residents in the city of Bristol were designated as redevelopment areas in and slated for demolition.
Although efforts were made to house the victims of the demolitions in the same area as before, in practice this was too difficult to fully implement and many people were rehoused in other areas, even different cities.
