This research addresses the gap in effectively applying Circular Economy (CE) principles to urban regeneration, through the case study of Uetikon am See's redevelopment in Zürich. It introduces a Circular Economy in Real Estate (CERE) model to operationalize CE in urban planning, highlighting the challenge of translating CE concepts into actionable strategies. Focused on the "Chance Uetikon" project, the study demonstrates the need for strategic planning and stakeholder engagement to integrate circularity into the built environment effectively. By bridging theoretical principles with practical application, this research contributes to sustainable urban development, offering insights for achieving resilience and encourages closed-loop systems and circularity in spatial transformations.
