Cities are all about change—new fashions, new buildings, new restaurants—but nowhere is that more apparent than in the hot new neighborhoods of the world. In cities around the globe, abandoned and derelict areas have been rebooted with new developments that turn historic buildings into hip destinations brimming with new parks, cultural venues, and nightlife. From a former slaughterhouse in Madrid that now houses a contemporary art center, to a revitalized section of Johannesburg that's become a creative hub, here are the world's coolest urban renewal projects.
