This chapter examines the present situation of large housing estates in Europe based on data obtained from detailed studies of estates in the RESTATE project. The findings reveal that the physical layout of houses is mostly the same: low- or high-rise multi-family dwellings with large green public spaces seem to predominate. The chapter suggests that although there are broad similarities between estates in European cities, they are most definitely not all the same and their diversity is crucial when implementing housing policies.
