Abstract : Founded in the XVIIth century, Fort de France has experienced a long process of geographical and morphological evolution. For the last 60 years on, local urban projects have been framed according to national housing and living policies. Wide-scale urban renewal projects have been decided and undertaken within the most popular districts of the city. As these urban evolutions were shaped by different factors, a series of case studies enabled to lead a detailed analysis of the transformations undergone by five conspicuous districts of the city, from a notion of “urban tracks” that we’ve needed to identify. As they are vestiges of social practices and landmarks for spatial identity, tracks araise questions about how they impact the implementation of local projects in accordance with national policies; and how they redefine ways of re-appropriation of space through all the actors involved – either ordinary or institutional ‒. Our study highlights two major logics of memory-making and reinvestment of tracks, the first being directive, the second more negotiated. The interest in such an investigation is to account for the stakes involved in the disappearance and the preservation of tracks within the framework of patrimony development, because these processes have contributed in defining the cultural identity, the value and the wealth of these districts. Our research will be led by these social, spatial and symbolic patterns.
