Urban green space is one of the most important elements of urban landscape. Meanwhile residential complexes are one of the important potentials for green spaces in cities. These complexes play an important role in providing the per capita needed of the inhabitants. These complexes don’t have the same capability to provide green space due to their features such as location, area and etc. and in this respect some are desirable and some are undesirable. The purpose of this descriptive-analytical research is to rank residential complexes in Rasht in terms of green space. Field study was done after documentary studies and the information needed was obtained through surveys, questionnaires and interviews to reach the goal. The AHP method was used to rank the residential complexes in term of green space and Spearman test was used to test the research hypothesis using SPSS software. The results show that Gas and Bahor residential complexes with the weight of 0.54 have the highest score and are in the first place in terms of green space desirability. Atlas, Pasargad, Shaghayegh, Bahonar and Sefidrood residential complexes have the lowest rating and the last rank. Spearman test results also show a significant relationship between the area and rank of residential complexes in terms of green space; that is to say, with the increase in the area of residential complexes, their rank of green space is also increasing. This means that with the increase in the area of residential complexes, their rank of green space will also increase
