Abstract: 

Due to demographic, economic, social and cultural developments in recent decades, many advancements have occurred in the form of urbanization and urban development. The increasing development of urban society under the effect of these factors has led to unplanned and unrestrained expansion of constructions and cities as well as many changes in the environment. That is why environmental conscious design of cities is required. With respect to investments on urban, industrial, and tourism areas, many population and urbanization developments have occurred in the central part of Tabriz. For optimal planning and future sustainable urban development of this area, 13 different natural and human criteria were selected, evaluated, weighted according to acceptable standards of urban development, and integrated based on Analytical Hierarchy Process. Research results indicated that 2237 hectares of the central part of Tabriz are the most potential lands for urban development. Concerning the scatteredness of the lands suitable for this purpose, ARC MAP, population forecasting methods, and urban land standards were used and a piece of land for urban development was selected.
