Due to high population density and a shortage of public space resources, the historical and cultural blocks represented by Fayuan Temple Block in Beijing are facing numerous challenges. Protecting the block while realizing urban renewal and development and improving residents’ living standards is a difficult task. Renovating courtyards is a key aspect of restorative construction and overall protection of historical and cultural blocks in Beijing. It has a significant impact on residents’ lives and requires their recognition and support. To gauge residents’ attitudes toward the courtyard renovation, this study introduces the theory of sense of place and measures the impact of the courtyard renovation projects on residents’ sense of place through a survey of residents in Fayuan Temple Block. The analysis of the survey data indicates that the residents of the block have a high level of recognition of the renovation projects in terms of local attachment and local identity, while their sense of local dependence is relatively low. This study suggests that to enhance residents’ sense of local dependence, they should be allowed to share more of the commercial dividends brought about by community renewal and development. This will increase their overall emotional recognition of community renovation projects.
