Farashganj, a historically significant neighborhood of Old Dhaka, Bangladesh, is home to numerous architectural structures that date back to the Mughal and British eras. The depiction of the daily activities in this area is characterized by its vibrancy, vigor, and vividness, effectively conveying a narrative that spans from the past to the present. The aim of this paper is to explore the potential for modifications and rejuvenation in order to maintain the integrity of an existing setting and identity within a specific arena. The primary emphasis lies in recognizing the significance and inherent possibilities of urban heritage. Additionally, this highlights the potential of utilizing heritage as a catalyst for socio-economic development. This study first identifies and analyzes the existing heritage components in Farashganj, which require protection and development in different aspects. It highlights the challenges facing the built-up area and the decline of historic places. Additionally, it explores how this approach can contribute to enhancing infrastructure and the overall built environment. The study commenced by conducting site observations, visual assessments, and interviews to identify the potential and limitations of the study area. Secondary data refers to information that is obtained from sources such as literature reviews, briefings from local municipalities, technical reports, and local plans. These sources serve as supportive resources in academic research. Consequently, the utilization of site analysis and synthesis mappings serves as a means to effectively translate and complement the conceptual initiative in order to establish suitable design guidelines.
