During the transition from industrialization to deindustrialization, the threat of decline that faced cities stimulated them to become more competitive in the global arena. That is when urban regeneration became widespread as a sort of revitalization and culture became the key strategy for the renewal of urban areas. Since then, city-growth through culture has become a powerful means of city development and branding in the whole world. In the first chapter it is examined why cities pursue culture-led strategies and how the process of urban regeneration appeared on a global scene as a way for successful revitalization and transformation of cities in decline and became a prominent reform mechanism in a range of aspects, where culture was serving a leading role for a city development and branding. The second axis is based on the theory and analysis of urban regeneration process and how it evolved in modern times in Istanbul as a case study. In particular, it is discussed how the culture-led regeneration naturally took turns with the help of the so-called “pioneers”, and how today the latter ones are used by the “followers” for investment opportunities in the newly upgrading neighborhoods. A great attention for regeneration is paid not only to already famous historical places, but also to long ago forgotten industrial places, that were turned into intellectual, artistic and economically attractive places. These were the spaces for new modern cultures that were profitably affecting the economy and vision of the city, developing cultural infrastructure and creating a brand-name of Istanbul in the whole world. Finally, the third chapter discusses how contemporary culture and its instruments exert an effect for economic, social outcomes and how it defines an image of the city in the world, in particular, on the examples of such big cultural events as the International Istanbul Biennial and the given title of European Capital of Culture 2010. Though a lot more has to be done in the nearest future, Istanbul has declared its bid to become a World Culture city and has definitely joined the worldwide competition to become a leader in the global network of capitalist cities.
