Despite of land scarcity, new developments do not seem to recognize and respect the importance of cultural aspect resulting in the disorientation of residential property development area. Furthermore, the land use pressures are interrelated internally for fiscal benefits and externally for creating the preserve land for habitat. The literature reviewed in terms of sense of place was conducted to rediscover the fundamental conception of place, perception and experience.

The concept of sense of place appeared to explain much of the ways in which people relate to place, and for this reason, many of the works reviewed for this study were written by scholars who have analyzed this concept. Hence, the background of reviewed study was to structure the work and concludes that places will add the value to establish the urban setting and place in economics context.
