Abstract: Urban renewal programs have been implemented in many countries to ght housing decay, poverty concentration, and associated social ills in the last decades. In this paper, we propose an evaluation of a large-scale urban renewal program launched in France in 2004. Using a novel estimator aimed at avoiding bias in the estimation of treatment eects heterogeneous across treatment groups or time periods, and complementing its results with a more precise double xed eects dierence-in-dierences estimator, we nd no signicant eect of the program on housing values and transaction volume. However, we do nd a signicant impact on the social prole of housing buyers and sellers: an increased number of upward transitions of housing units, from blue-collar sellers to intermediate category buyers or from intermediate category sellers to executive buyers, and reduced housing transactions among executives. Altogether, our ndings suggest a renewed interest of upper socio-professional categories to invest or keep their property in the renovated neighborhoods.4
