Since the late 1990s, several urban projects have been developed to preserve and renovate some areas in Mexico City, gentrifying and revaluing different key housing and historical areas. One of the most recent urban projects, Nuevo Polanco, has being developed through the urban conversion of an old industrial area, emptied through a decade-long process of displacement of industry to the periphery and becoming an area of multiple uses (for housing, commercial, and corporate buildings). The project is advertised as a new development hub, from which all traces of its industrial past were erased. Through the description and analysis of this case study, this paper aims to point out the complex dynamics of urban development in a context of multiple forms of construction and reconstruction of urban identity and local belonging. This dynamic involves a struggle between distinct social groups with different worldviews about the past and future of the metropolis.
