Introduction and Background: Failure to protect and rehabilitate inefficient urban areas often results from dissatisfaction and inactivity of people with regard to imitation and non-conformist versions of urban management practices for modernization. The feasibility of urban renaissance projects seems to require the definition of projects that are based on expectations of the people, in the places where they will be driven to develop and run in a timely manner.
Aims: in order to localize the urban renaissance, the Shahid Hasheminejad neighborhood, located in the central area and adjacent to the shrine of the Imam Reza (AS), which nowadays was more exhausted in terms of physical and functional, was considered as a case study.
Methodology: For this purpose, applied research was used and data are collected using interviews and library and field research. Data were analyzed using, SWOT, Hierarchical Analysis and the Strategic Priority Assessment Matrix. The present study was carried out in the first step by introducing and prioritizing the indices and indices of the localization of the urban regeneration approach in two stages of the survey, consisting of 15 specialists and expert. After that, 380 residents, adjacent and business people have been chosen to define the strategic position of the plan and effective strategic priorities in increasing the residents' satisfaction with the process of renaissance of the neighborhood. Finally, in order to explain the research findings based on the extraction of urban renaissance indices for the above neighborhood, twelve desirable sites were evaluated as developmental locations using the hierarchical analysis structure and in order to prioritize proposed projects, in line with localization strategies. The Renaissance approach was considered to be six strategic projects.
Conclusion: Finally, using the priority location-assessment matrix, the projects defined as spatial priorities were matched, and a mid-term plan was presented to carry out strategic projects to stimulate the localization renaissance of the Shahid Hasheminejad Neighborhood. The results indicate that timely implementation of the developed plans includes: ownership, agreement, injection of capital, construction and operation; increasing social status, satisfaction and participation of the residents plays a significant role.
