Introduction: The central texture of Kermanshah has undergone extensive changes due to the implementation of improvement and renovation projects during the last decade. Contructions such as widening Modares Street and introducing projects for urban regeneration along this street have led to changes in the social context and urban landscape, and therefore the quality of life is a function of improvement and renovation processes.
