What cities in the south are gentrifying the fastest?

So far Iíve seen the gentrification occurring in Miami, New Orleans and Charleston, SC.

And I also hear Raleigh is seeing some gentrification also!

Itís so odd that with the exception of Atlanta, you donít really hear about cities gentrifying in the south. Itís always the usual suspects, NYC, DC, Boston, Atlanta, etc.

Yep,lots of hipsters from what I'm seeing.. Looks as though they are getting rid of all the old ranch style homes and building more dense style homes putting two and 3 houses where there was one on a lot and dense style condos

The funny part is it seems to be more Gentrifying at the Neighborhood level in Nashville than more so in Atlanta imo, at least as far as new homes being built in the city.. It looks as though a lot of old homes get more renovated in Atlanta than newly built and they are much better at the affordable home thing in Atlanta. Most of the poor and minorities seem to get pushed into further out district's of Nashville like Antioch for example.. Happens in Atlanta too for example Clayton County but they are at least trying to keep people in there homes in Atlanta. If I'm not mistaken they have said to be working on this in Nashville as well but no where as far along as Atlanta in affordable housing

Actually I think the south is underrated when it comes to gentrification. Perhaps the Midwest offers the most un-gentrifying cities or slow gebtrifiying cities!

What's happened/happening in Durham NC over the past 15-20 years is something that shouldn't be overlooked.
