Title:Rebuilding the urban structure of the inner city : a strategy for the repair of downtown Oakland, Calfornia PDF Logo

Abstract:American cities have struggled to maintain the centrality of their downtown areas. As retail and office uses have continued to move into suburban areas and outlying regions, many local governments - especially of smaller and mid-size cities - have all but given up on the prospect of replacing the commercial vitality once found in many city centers. The ability to attract a permanent residential population, lured by good regional access, has become a necessary prerequisite for attracting new commercial uses back to the inner city.
