Abstract: This chapter examines the problems and the potential benefits of waterfront developments in the context of regeneration. Models of good practice that are comprehensive and integrated are discussed. The more commercially-oriented examples of waterfront developments in the USA are contrasted with the more publicly-spirited approaches in Continental Europe and elsewhere, advocating a combination of the two, in which culture plays an increasingly important role. In conclusion, the future success of waterfront regeneration strategies will be increasingly tied to a development paradigm that reflects more prescribed development criteria and one which encourages inclusivity, mixed and innovative projects that promote good planning, the creation of innovative urban design and vision, cultural sensitivity, vitality and momentum, equitable financing and appropriate development scale. All these attributes provide the basis from which urban waterfront initiatives can successfully be used as prime micro-market methods for the wider regeneration that will befit a city's future economic, social and cultural growth
