The Urban Sustainable Development is multilateral and it deserves the consideration of different dimensions of the issue. Traditionally the urban development was generally limited to unilaterally economic policies and goals. However, in the last decade of 20th century sustainable development is multilateral, and it includes social and environmental-ecological goals as well as economical ones. The aim of this research is to study the sustenance of development in Tabriz according to the quality characteristics of sustainable development in the period between 2003 and 2013. The results of studying chosen variables and related criterions show that Tabriz encounters a state of relatively instability in economic, social-cultural, and environmental-ecological fields. Also we have used a combination of method in this research.
