German term or phrase: im Bestand
Das bedeutet Erhalt der stadtbildprägenden Kerne, Gebäuderückbau und geringere Dichten mit mehr Freiräumen im Bestand. Das Stadtbild hat sich in den letzten 10 Jahren grundlegend verändert. Die dominierende und 1989 in ihrem Bestand in großen Teilen gefährdete gründerzeitliche Bausubstanz ist heute zu drei Vierteln erneuert.

In my opinion, this Bestand is based on
bestehen bleiben.
e.g. ... with more space/gaps between the remaining buildings.
How does that sound?

in total


Explanation:
Bestand = existence/survival/stock/inventory/residue. I don't think you can use any of these terms in your text. My suggestion is therefore to approach it differently by maybe using 'in total' / 'at a total'

Good luck

... in existence


Explanation:
This is not easy - I don't think there is a lot to choose from here.
How about something like this:

...geringere Dichten mit mehr Freiräumen im Bestand.

= ...less density with more open areas/spaces in existence.

Die dominierende und 1989 in ihrem Bestand in großen Teilen gefährdete gründerzeitliche Bausubstanz ist heute zu drei Vierteln erneuert.

= The dominant building structure from the founder period, which was greatly at risk in its existence in 1989, has been rebuilt 75% today.

Hope this helps.
