AbstractTaipei local government has experienced the transformation in neoliberal reforms and urban renewal policy due to financial overburden and Urban Renewal Act 1998 in recent decades. Urban renewal has turned into a business instruction to physical revitalization. This market-oriented development might privilege landowners and developers and sacrifice the rights of low-income residents to stay put. The previous research, mainly qualitative and case studies, has also identified gentrification pressures in a specific neighborhood or community as a result of renewal projects, even pointed out that urban renewal is one of gentrification policy. Considering empirical research on the effect of urban renewal on gentrification still lack of city-wide analyses to actually examine the gentrification process in Taipei City, this paper aims to take on the discussion of the socioeconomic changes and demographic impacts of renewal gentrification in Taipei City. We will gather socio-demographic gentrification indicators at the village level through bivariate spatial autocorrelation approach to investigate the possible spatial forms and trajectories of renewal gentrification over Taipei City. According to the result, it shows that the positive and high-value relationship between urban renewal and gentrification exists in Taipei City center when the private-led urban renewal development is promoted to a certain scale. For urban planning scope, It is suggested that the effective and feasible solution to reduce negative impacts of gentrification under the promotion of urban renewal should be carried out in order to strengthen the public interest of urban renewal and ensure the protection of the living right of local residents.
