 Summary:
 In the period between two world wars, and particularly afterwards the Second World War, Novi Sad had an intensive construction of industrial sites and mass housing neighbourhoods in Liman area. Although the city was faced with serious morphological and functional changes, the most of newly built areas remained without thoughtful set of public spaces. Newly built mass housing neighbourhoods had a particular problem with the lack of public spaces intended for socialization, closed facades without any relation with activities on sidewalks, evident lack of any connection with the Danube River, etc. On the other hand, the post-socialist period has left rich industrial heritage and unused in-between public spaces in this area with potential for reuse. The first industrial zone in Novi Sad, built around the former industrial complex Petar Drapšin in Liman 3, has been abandoned and neglected for decades, until it was reused as space for various public activities compelling Novi Sad in development of cultural and creative resources of the city. The recent development of creative industries through reuse of an abandoned industrial structures highlights the issue of inadequate intermediate public spaces. This research is oriented towards the case study of Liman 3, through observation and valorisation of its in-between public spaces with the potential for reuse, in order to reconsider how a post-socialist legacy can be used in the transformation of such spaces. The aim of the study is take advantage of observed potentials, and to make these spaces suitable as a public stage for the social life of the city through their future development.
