The Impacts of Urban Regeneration Policy on Baitasi Neighborhood in Beijing

Cheng, Mingye

In this thesis, I intend to look closely at urban regeneration policy and impacts in a neighborhood in Beijing, Baitasi Neighborhood. The neighborhood has a long history and is a crucial part of central Beijing. But in recent decades, the area also faced issues mentioned above. Fortunately, starting from 2014 and 2015, a series of policies, local initiatives, and public private partnership actions has been implemented to find solutions in addressing the issues without bringing significant change to original context of the neighborhood. By focusing on impacts on built environment and community wellbeing after urban regeneration practice, and after studying both positive and negative sides the impact have on the neighborhood, some advice could be made to guide future development in areas facing similar problems in China.
