Instead of changing the location, let's change the people.

A location can't become run down by itself. It's the people that make it run down.

lol I can't believe the terms people come up with.

I don't know- I lived for 2 years in a barrio type neighborhood. Gentrification is definitely not good for renters, but it is good for the neighborhood and for the homeowners. Abandoned businesses get re-vamped. Property values go up. This benefits all types of people.

If people don't want their neighborhood to change drastically, then they need to become informed on how to participate economically like the guy in this article. Opening local, unique businesses is a good idea. Investing in the properties of the area is another.

If you are disciplined with your money and work hard, you can come up with the capital needed to invest. What people need is information and motivation.

What is to come to Boyle Heights: Mapping Metro's Gold Line Development Boom in Boyle Heights - DevelopmentWatch - Curbed LA

It looks like a lot of affordable housing, not really what you expect of an area that is 'gentrifying' This is within the public-private investment realm though, and I'm not sure how many private only projects there might be out there besides the Sears building.

I wouldn't be surprised if 15 yrs from now Boyle Heights is reclaimed by Jews who abandoned the neighborhood before WW2 as they moved up the socioeconomic ladder.

Gentrification would also benefit Latino professionals and business owners.

BTW it would also open up opportunities for people already there, I doubt the demographics would drastically change anyway.

On the flipside hoodrats/ gangbangers would be forced into another area bringing their problems with them.
