Abstract [en]

Urban Renewal activity can be attributed to the reuse and intensification of tertiary

areas. Past research suggests areas of regeneration can perform at par and/or better

then prime property sectors. Policy initiatives lowering perceived risk, attracting

investment is conditional to the unique characteristics of renewal areas. As a

progressive area of research there still remains insufficient data to quantify related

returns and associated risks. Financial institutions tend to favor prime property and

neglect tertiary areas. Local, smaller developers can comprehend the holistic nature

of renewal investment. A comparative analysis of past urban renewal investment

behavior with actors of renewal investment in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, were

evaluated leading to empirical possibilities of investment alternatives.
