URBAN TRANSITION INSIGHTS FROM INDUSTRIAL LEGACY CITIES
Historically developed around extractive and manufacturing economies, deindustrialization has
left many industrial legacy cities with an urban fabric no longer suitable for the 21st century.
Vacant industrial land, idle factory buildings, and derelict railway tracks constitute examples of

themselves and meet their current and future needs.
