Singapore Property Realtor is introduce the Urban Renewal is a controversial program of land re-development in areas of moderate to high density urban land use. Urban renewal is extremely controversial, and typically involves the destruction of businesses, the relocation of people, and the use of domain’s a legal instrument to reclaim private property for city-initiated development projects.
The justifications often used for Urban Renewal include the "renewal" of residential slums, blighted commercial and industrial areas. In the second half of the 20th century, renewal often resulted in the creation of urban sprawl and vast areas of cities being demolished and replaced by expressways. Urban renewal's effect on actual revitalization is a subject of intense debate. It is seen by proponents as an economic engine, and by opponents as a regressive mechanism for enriching the wealthy at the expense of taxpayers and the poor. It carries a high cost to existing communities.
Over time, urban renewal evolved into a policy based less on destruction and more on renovation and investment, and today is an integral part of many local governments, often combined with small and big business incentives. But even in this adapted form, Urban Renewal projects are still widely accused of abuse and corruption.
