The activation of proper synergies among cultural heritage, local business and enterprise promotion can play a pivotal role in developing bottom-up processes of urban regeneration and in enhancing competitiveness between cities by enlightening local cultural resources. This paper aims at showing how an integrated approach in urban regeneration could foster business creation and contribute to the heritage preservation. For this purpose, the paper discusses a case study in Boston led by a Community Development Corporation, the Jamaica Plain Neighbourhood Development Corporation, whose overall mission is the promotion of local equitable development, also supporting economic opportunity initiatives. The restoration as well as the re-use of a 19th-century-old brewery is playing a pivotal role by enriching the whole initiative of urban regeneration with a strong symbolic linkage to the former industrial past of the area.
