CENTRO DE FORTALEZA: reabilitação urbana para quem? (Fortaleza downtown: urban rehabilitation for whom?)
O presente estudo foi realizado no primeiro semestre de 2004 e tem por objetivo avaliar a situação dos imóveis e dos negócios no Centro Histórico de Fortaleza, tendo em vista os projetos da atual gestão municipal, visando a requalificação da área central e a reabilitação dos imóveis vagos com a reestruturação interna e mudanças de usos para aumentar a oferta de moradias. O estudo mostrou que existe um dinamismo real dos negócios do Centro, porém em processo de declínio e que os imóveis estão relativamente deteriorados, exigindo uma readequação no sentido de favorecer as classes médias e populares, assim como de proteção do patrimônio histórico daquela área.
Palavras chave: centro, reabilitação, patrimônio histórico.
