Urbanization development has incurred various unpleasant consequences on urban settlements. Old urban centers have thereafter deteriorated ed during population and activity refinement and undergone improvement, reconstruction, and renovation actions by the dominance of a physical dimension and non-participatory practice. In the 20th century, a regeneration approach with a holistic solution focused on participatory practice was proposed to solve the urban deteriorated problems. The approach has several strengths as well as weaknesses among which lack of spatial integration is the most important one. The paper aims at investigating the role of spatial integration in Tehran urban deteriorated regeneration. The research data were qualitative and quantitative, collected through library and field methods. The statistical population included Tehran’s planning experts. Delphi method was also used in this research. The obtained data were analyzed by theme analysis and TOPSIS model. The results showed that Tehran urban regeneration plans have not been implemented and have been merely documented, and actions taken towards regeneration were limited to improvement, reconstruction, and renovation. Spatial connection of the target areas has also not been taken into consideration in these documents.
