With the concept of sustainable urban development, urban renewal has become one of the trends in Taiwan developments. Although we have Urban Renewal Act and other related regulations, there are still many difficulties in the practical execution process. Therefore, civil investors have relatively low desire to participate in urban renewal, and it also caused the unsatisfied effects of urban renewal in Taiwan. If there could be a solution to constructively guide and encourage more organizations to participate in it, which will accelerate the speed of urban renewal in Taiwan. In the process of urban renewal, floor area incentive has become a major attraction for which civil investors would be willing to participate in urban renewal. However, it is also an important topic for government to maintain urban living quality and build better public space at the same time that the floor area incentive is granted to the civil investors. This research discovered that in our current urban renewal regulations, there was a lack of clearly defined floor area incentive granting standards to identify and evaluate the participants. This causes questions and controversies in the review process of renewal projects and delays the progress of urban renewal as well as decreasing the desire to participate in renewal projects. Therefore, if the government would like to drive the business of urban renewal more smoothly, each floor area incentive item and standard should be defined more specifically. Moreover, when increasing floor area incentive is used as a method to encourage more participants for renewal projects, negative impacts should be considered in order to maintain the environment quality of renewed areas. This research also found that after the participants strive for the floor area incentive, they would need to increase building height to fulfill the demand if they want to fully and effectively utilize the floor area incentive. However, due to current regulations of constructional height constrains, civil investors can not enjoy the benefits of urban renewal floor area incentive and further caused lower desire to invest in it. Therefore, this research preliminarily believed that there should a need to loosen the building height constrain from current regulations. Also, under the consideration to loosen it, in order to ensure the urban public space and living quality of community, there should be proper measurements taken to be accompanied. As a result, at the same time that this research made a suggestion to loosen building height constrains, decreasing building coverage ratio should be collocated together and appointed the location of set-back wall line of the concerned building, so that the public area can be increased, and it would achieve the ultimate goal of improving living quality in the community. According to the analytic results, this research proposed some improvement suggestions for related regulations of urban renewal acts, so the government administrations can refer to these and hopefully increase the desire of civil investors to participate in urban renewal in order to create the situation where residents, surrounding residents, investors, and government are all satisfied happily.
