Horizontal growth of cities, destruction of natural resources, reduction of population density in traditional neighborhoods of cities, construction of residential areas compatible with the lives of residents, and increasing the quality of life are among the most significant management challenges of Iranian cities. Although various studies identified the influential variables on the improvement of the place attachment or the results of improving this sense and emphasized the constructive role of improving this sense on the quality of life, the effectiveness of the physical elements of housing in the place attachment is not measured experimentally among the residents. Therefore, the current study tries to investigate the role of physical identity-making elements in the housing satisfaction of residents and evaluate the impact of these components on the attachment to the neighborhood among the residents. The current research is applied in terms of nature, and the research method is descriptive-survey. Data collection tools are also based on the questionnaire. The statistical population includes all the residents of the Aghazaman Neighborhood, and the statistical sample is 300 of the residents selected using a random sampling method. Research data were analyzed using Partial Least Square Modeling. The results show that the effectiveness of the identity elements on the satisfaction with the neighborhood is 0.58. Also, its effect on the neighborhood attachment is 0.15. The results confirm the research suggested model and indicate that the identity elements indirectly affect the neighborhood attachment through satisfaction with the neighborhood. Also, the results approve that the identity elements affect the place attachment by influencing the subjective and objective evaluations and improving the housing satisfaction of residents. According to the research findings, a positive understanding of the quality of the residential area has a significant correlation by increasing the level of neighborhood attachment that increases the persistence in the neighborhood.
