Abstract: To ensure that urban renewal can address urban decay problems effectively and satisfy different parties in a territory, many scholars in the world recommend sustainable urban renewal. Sustainable urban renewal is a concept to integrate global concept of sustainability into urban renewal process. In order to transform such abstract concept into real practices, an effective approach should be worked out. With reference to previous studies and foreign examples, urban (re)development projects can be more sustainable through urban design. To work out how urban design would affect triple sustainable values i.e. economy, environment and social equity of urban renewal projects in Hong Kong, a study investigating this issue is initiated. By conducting questionnaire survey to collect the views from experienced practitioners in local construction industry, urban design features that have significant impacts on the sustainable values can be identified. It is believed that the research findings of this paper can strengthen the understanding of local developers, urban designers and government officials on how to plan a sustainable urban renewal project afterwards.
