Abstract: Stock planning and heritage regeneration are two themes that are usually broached in the conservation of historic spaces in old urban quarters in Xiamen, China. In the conditions of a low quality of living, environmental pollution, transportation congestion, and disordered management, the old districts in the city are facing big challenges. The main aim of this study is to develop a strategy to share and regenerate the urban space in old urban quarters and activate vitality in districts by providing and sharing new spaces and protecting the local historical culture and infrastructure for both residents and tourists. Through the introduction of optimized strategies, there can be new possibilities for the old urban quarter of Yingping District to create: a livable space with multilevel people, a public space with high-quality shared infrastructure, and a cultural space with historical characteristic. By analyzing the condition of this area, new solutions can be applied, which include the conservation of historical buildings, social structure adjustment, façade renewal, transportation reorganization, art activation, and infrastructure development. This study provides a reference for the practice of sharing and renewal of the built heritage in historic urban areas.
