If anything, there isnít as much gentrification in as many of these cities in comparison to cities in other regions.
In the Sun Belt there isnít a whole lot of gentrification because thereís no need for it. For example you wonít find any gentrification in Bakersfield, but you just might find it in Pittsburgh.

You find some in older neighborhoods of Sun Belt cities, but most just sprawl.

Only a few, but not in Phoenix, Las Vegas, or Brownsville.

Oh ok...There are other Sun Belt cities like Atlanta, Charleston, Savannah, Richmond, New Orleans, etc. that have though.

Depends on the city

Turn around before 2050:
yes- Philly (already has), Baltimore, Richmond, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, New Orleans

maybe- Newark, Allentown, Rochester, St Louis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Memphis

no- Camden, Buffalo, Cleveland, Akron, Toledo, Detroit, Gary

You are certainly correct but I donít think Richmond is considered a Sun Belt city. The climate is not warm enough.

Your knowledge of Detroit is severely lacking, despite your name, lol.Detroit is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance, with more building activity than it has seen in decades. DT is booming along with some of the other core neighbourhoods, and a new tallest tower is supposed to start construction this year in the city.
The population is stabilizing and some neighbourhoods are actually gaining many new residents. I figure it won't be long before the city as a whole starts gaining population once again.
