This paper focus on built heritage in social and economic development by studying two close-knit sites within the district Palosaari in Vaasa, Finland. Namely the former Vaasan Puuvilla (Wasa Bomull) industrial site and the adjacent former park Wolffin puisto (Wolffska parken). These sites are historically connected and geographically close, but have experienced very different outcomes of the planning process.
