Vacant buildings represent an insufficient exploited "gold mine" for future developments. By finding the future users preferences, vacant buildings can be reused and could generate a significant contribution towards a more sustainable development within the construction industry. Throughout this paper the environmental, social and urban benefits of building reuse are presented and a discrete choice experiment is used to indicate the most important attributes and the preferences of the potential future occupants.
