In northern Germany we have witnessed another example of urban resilience in Stralsund with the redevelopment of Quarter 17, which is an essential tangible element of the world heritage site. Together with the old town square the main pedestrian and shopping zone have been revitalised. In order to preserve the urban fabric and the outlook of the old city, heights of the buildings and their facades were regulated and kept close to the authenticity of the old town.
