Yes the post is long but what a revelation. I was not familiar with Lowell but from these pictures they are doing a fantastic job in renovation and renewal. Long may it continue and be a spur to other U.S. cities that have suffered urban blight over the past 30/40 years. Most of these old commercial buildings are far superior to a lot of the new crap that is being built now in cities such as London.

In Sao Paulo

There was a prison built in the 20s that looked like this:


Most of it was imploded in 2002. The remaining two buildings were renovated and the rest of the land became a park.

Those Lowell projects on page 66 were simply awesome. The brick, the industrial aesthetic, the windows, the belgian block streets, the canals. That's urban perfection. That's the look that people crave these days.

The plan calls for spending 25 billion PLN (approx. 7 billion dollars) between 2014 and 2020 on revitalization of major cities. This will be the biggest revitalization project in Europe and Lodz (second most populous city in Poland) will be the first to participate. Both Lodz and Katowice are already investing hundreds of millions of dollars in revitalization projects in their city centers.

Those decorative paint jobs in Gdansk, are they based on original decorations, or are they modern creations?

About Lowell: I really appreciated that repo. Finally something else than painted facades in Central Europe (although I really appreciate those too), and what a great result! There are a few sites in Belgium that are similar to that and that I would love to see turn into something similar. Just one thing: please don't post more than 10-15 photos in one post. If you have more photos, just make more posts. Otherwise pages become really heavy to download.

Here's a small addition from Ghent, BE. "Grote Sikkel":

  • 2009



  • 2011



  • 2013






    I'm showing this partly to illustrate a clean-up without plaster or paint. These facades were built in 1481, making them more than 530 years old. They were not painted or plastered over, but show off their basic material: limestone.


"Achtersikkel" (backside of the same building):
  • 2009



  • 2011



  • 2013



    In this case, it's sandstone and brick. There are a lot of sandstone-and-brick buildings in this part of Belgium. They often get painted over in red and white paint. Often with nice results, but in this case the natural look has its value.



Same city, different area, different kind of project:






In the old port area, there are 3 19th-century cotton warehouses. Cotton coming in from Texas and Louisiana was stocked here before being distributed to the cotton mills throughout the city. There used to be 5 of them. Those that remain have dilapidated badly throughout the years, and it's only since a bit more than a decade that this city has started to cherish its industrial heritage in almost the same way as its medieval predecessors.

On the above picture is 'warehouse 23', the northernmost of the three remaining buildings. It's still in the same state they all were until a couple of years ago. Its neighbor, though, has been restored by a private investor and now houses offices at the ground floor and (decadently huge) lofts on the upper floor:






The southernmost of these three was renovated even earlier by the city itself. They wanted to have it redeveloped into an fashion outlet center, but the permit was destroyed by a federal court because they had no sound traffic plan (this roads around this area are already pretty saturated with traffic). Since then, it's just been a renovated steel skeleton...

Beautiful!

In Rugen, Germany, there is Prora, an incredibly long building that was under construction in the 30s. I believe it stopped during WWII and it was damaged severely. It was a pretty imposing ruin, but parts are being revitalized.

It's amazing what a difference new cladding makes. It looks nice and modern now.
