relocation / development of the existing infrastructure
Explanation:
This is a difficult one, because of the unbelievably beautiful convolutions the author goes through to write "important" German.
Verortung = relocation
The key is "räumlich", i.e; to spatially relocate. "reorientation" is another possibility that may fit the context.
Bestand = existing items (for instance in stock). SO with urgban renewal that can only be buildings and other structures, which may best be combined in one words as "infrastructure".
