This week let's discuss: Gentrification
Gentrification is the process of renovating and improving a house or district so that it conforms to middle-class taste. Middle-class is defined as a social group between the upper and working classes including professional and business workers and their families.
The Process ~
Middle - upper class population moves into lower-income neighborhoods attracted by cheaper housing. These areas are transformed, which are designed to drive up cost and forcing lower-income residents out. These areas will then attract new businesses, skilled workers, development, which leads to a more middle and upper class housing demand.
