Abstract

This chapter considers resilient urban redevelopment as the ability of public and private stakeholders to respond to changes in real estate market demand by adopting existing offices to new usages. It explores the various conceptual planning policy instruments that could assist in realising resilient urban redevelopment. Additionally, the effectiveness of such planning policy instruments is demonstrated by case study examples from the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The effectiveness of achieving urban resilience through office conversions based on the use of policy instruments is a difficult and complex matter to assess. The Rotterdam covenant, in terms of discipline, is in the ‘legal’ policy instrument category. The chapter concludes with some comparative case study lessons for policymakers and general conclusions for research on resilient urban redevelopment.
