Abstract

Strategies and partnerships for delivering sustainable private sector-led urban development projects are yet to be effectuated. Despite the fact that actors in real estate development increasingly incorporate sustainability features into decision-making, it seems that developing sustainable urban areas – taking into account more complex social, environmental, economic issues at a bigger scale with potential wider benefits – is far from common practice in Western countries. Nevertheless, some promising climate-adaptive and circular urban development projects are currently being initiated in Dutch practice. This paper explores two contrasting sustainable private sector-led urban development strategies by drawing lessons from case studies in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
