Abstract

Due to the emergence of urban regeneration, there have been many case studies on urban regeneration projects. However, there has been little research on a successful project that may be helpful for the execution of a sustainable urban structure policy. This study analyses the strategies and characteristics of two successful representative urban regeneration projects that aimed toward a sustainable urban structure, from the viewpoint of land-use transport interaction. For this purpose, we conducted a literature review on the theory of sustainable urban structures and land-use transport interaction and analysed the major strategies and planning characteristics of HafenCity and Shinagawa Station area. In this study, we found that two cases considered an integrated approach of land use and transport to achieve sustainable urban structures that also emphasized regional characteristics and planning factors based on the goal of the projects. As a result, we concluded that a sustainable urban regeneration project should be based on integrated consideration in local context, transport systems and regional characteristics.
