The topic of this paper studies the relationship between temporalities and the transformative mechanisms in cities and neglected port zones. The central hypothesis posits that major events can be understood as tools of transformation of the contemporary city in which the event, by its very nature impermanent in character, can nevertheless have a permanent effect on the development of certain facilities. The permanency that gets established as a result of an short-term happening differs from traditional forms of urban intervention. Analysis of urban development growing out of a short-term event uses the case of the 2007 America’s Cup of Valencia to explicate a durable strategy between these two modalities. The stages which have allowed a reconfiguration of large portions of this Spanish city follow a profile used and reused in other European cities
