Atlas of ReUrbanism

Buildings and Blocks in American Cities

As the National Trust’s ReUrbanism initiative seeks to build the successful, inclusive, and resilient cities of tomorrow, the Atlas of ReUrbanism is a tool for urban leaders and advocates to better understand and leverage the opportunities that exist in American cities.

The Atlas of ReUrbanism takes the massive amount of data currently available about cities and makes it more accessible, allowing for the exploration and discovery of connections between older buildings and economic, demographic, environmental measures. Whether you’re an activist, journalist, developer, or resident, the Atlas of ReUrbanism contains detailed information about the businesses and residents, buildings and blocks that make cities work for everyone.

The Atlas of ReUrbanism was supported through the generous financial contributions of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, the Kresge Foundation, and the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
