dc.description.abstract The research is centered on the problem of redevelopment of the grey belt of derelict and underused industrial land around the city centre of St. Petersburg. The redevelopment process in St. Petersburg, although lasting for more than 15 years, is described as being still in its initial phase due to extremely large scope of industrial heritage. Obstacles that hinder redevelopment of old industrial areas in St. Petersburg include multiple land ownership in industrial zones, economic risks for developers that make them avoid complex and long-lasting projects and a variety of administrative and institutional barriers in the bureaucratic system of construction approval. After a decade of very pro-development and pro-investment entrepreneurial policy that included declarations about necessity of redevelopment of old industrial areas, the city government shifted to a conservative policy of keeping the industry on its current location. Currently the city does not initiate any projects itself due to lack of finances and does not encourage any changes in status quo of industrial enterprises. There is a lack of cooperation between city government and business community, therefore common projects and partnerships are inexistent, and the overall institutional capacity for strategic planning of the future of the city is very low. en
