This chapter explores how condo-ism may be used to promote urban renewal and introduce inclusive planning principles, such as social mix and supply of public goods via linked developments. Four residential projects in the cities of Toronto and Jerusalem are discussed. It is demonstrated how despite some similarities in motivations and planning paths, the variances in local political aims, consumer preferences, and social values have had a very different impact on urban life in these urban environments. The analysis is based on findings from two independent research projects that explore urban growth, planning policies, and urban restructuring.
