Improving the quality level of central areas of a city is among the major purposes of urban management and plans so that taking proper approaches could lead to revitalization of economic and social texture of such areas. Such an issue takes precedence when two factors are considered: first, the potential of such city textures in satisfying the current requirements of citizens has declined over time, resulting in deficiency in their effectuality which would make the very texture prone to abandonment, and second, the old textures are the symbol of history of a city with which the city is identified. With regard to the fact that the Complex of Hassan Padeshah of Tabriz is located in the central section of the city, it will not rule out the very claim. However, urban plans and measures with taking some policies like focusing on the suburban development have increased the imbalanced city development which threatens a city to get worn out from inside. The question posed here is whether or not the value of central quarters of the city of Tabriz has dwindled over recent decades. It is hypothesized that the development of suburban areas which is under the influence of urban management measures is a parallel factor contributing to the decrease in the value of central section of the city. Therefore, an investigation into the process of changes in the quality of central section of the city due to measures taken by the urban management and implementation of urban plans over the last 25 years has been the major cause behind the current study. To serve the objectives of the current research, mixed method (field and deeds study) was utilized and the analysis was made based on comparative-inferential method and trend analysis. The results indicate that Tabriz urban management’s taking dual stance against the central section and the suburban areas has devalued the central section of the city from social, structural, and economic aspects.
