Post-industrial America : metropolitan decline & inter-regional job shifts by George Sternlieb( Book )

12 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Metropolitan and regional economic and demographic shifts - now manifested in the stagnation or decline of America's old industrial region - pose consequences more far-reaching than the urban-suburban shifts which have heretofore claimed public attention. This collection of original essays examines why the focus of development is shifting away from older metropolitan regions and begins to mold policy in regard to a number of vexing issues: jobs and earnings, labor force characteristics, housing supplies, public expenditures, land use, tax delinquency and abandonment, and the struggle for racial equality. George Sternlieb and James W. Hugues have focused on three approaches to metropolitan change: examining the economic and demographic trendlines, analyzing the causes underlying the statistics, and considering the policy implications of stagnation or decline in our older cities."--Jacket

Shopping centers, U.S.A. by Peter Viereck( Book )

14 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are there potentials in central city revitalization? What role will the federal government play in determining future retail locational choices? Shopping center development has never been more popular-or more hazardous than it is today. Retail distribution in the United States has greater efficiency than anywhere else in the world, a tribute to the adaptability and rationalization of systems which have characterized the field. The pressures of the future, however, require greater exertion if they are to be adequately met. The industry drive to the new "middle markets" may change the face of small city America-or it may lead to a blind alley. As central cities, aided by EDA (Economic Development Administration) and UDAG (Urban Development Action Grant), gird up for revitalization in the face of reduced real buying power, these issues take on increased vigor. A whole new legal fabric is evolving in the development of major commercial facilities. Does it mark the path of the future-or is it an ineffectual last gasp effort to reshape the basic overwhelming trend lines of American life? How do we get a grasp on these parameters? Whether city planner, economic or marketing consultant, investor, or developer-much of our future depends on the answers. The authorities brought together for these specially sponsored papers are the best in the business-and provide key insights into this dynamic field. Demographics and consumer response that challenge marketing and planning professionals are also included."--Provided by publisher

New Brunswick, New Jersey : the decline and revitalization of urban America by David Listokin( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While many older American cities struggle to remain vibrant, New Brunswick has transformed itself, adapting to new forms of commerce and a changing population, and enjoying a renaissance that has led many experts to cite this New Jersey city as a model for urban redevelopment. Featuring more than 100 remarkable photographs and many maps, New Brunswick, New Jersey explores the history of the city since the sixteenth century, with an emphasis on the dramatic changes of the past few decades. Using oral histories, archival materials, census data, and surveys, authors David Listokin, Dorothea Berkhout, and James W. Hughes illuminate the decision-making and planning process that led to New Brunswick's dramatic revitalization, describing the major redevelopment projects that demonstrate the city's success in capitalizing on funding opportunities. These projects include the momentous decision of Johnson & Johnson to build its world headquarters in the city, the growth of a theater district, the expansion of Rutgers University into the downtown area, and the destruction and rebuilding of public housing. But while the authors highlight the positive effects of the transformation, they also explore the often heated controversies about demolishing older neighborhoods and ask whether new building benefits residents. Shining a light on both the successes and failures in downtown revitalization, they underscore the lessons to be learned for national urban policy, highlighting the value of partnerships, unwavering commitment, and local leadership. Today, New Brunswick's skyline has been dramatically altered by new office buildings, residential towers, medical complexes, and popular cultural centers. This engaging volume explores the challenges facing urban America, while also providing a specific case study of a city's quest to raise its economic fortunes and retool its economy to changing needs."--
