Reanimation of Tobacna Tovarna Ljubljana
Ljubljana doesn't have the global pull like for example London. It is less interesting for real-estate investment. Professional studies done for Tobačna blindly used “best-practice models" of foreign urban renewal projects. "Local reach" of the city means that it cannot accommodate big economic fluctuations. After a crisis, the city cannot pick up. The area needs a mixed set of stakeholders (big and small) that all have access to politics of space. Different conditions are favorable to different groups, making the area more resilient to economic change. This does mean smaller economic return, slower development, but also more stable and long-term strategy.
