Hopefully . In most of cities in America an area like Canoga Park would already be gentrified . But here in L.A we have rent control. Tons of older run down apartment buildings in Canoga Park .

The Topanga Mall and the Village are both technically in Canoga Park and have high end stores like Louis Vuitton , Tiffany etc but almost nobody refers to them as being in Canoga Park , they brand themselves as being in ďTopangaĒ .

Here is a recent article regarding the Warner center 2035 plan , it’s written by an anti development person but explains many of the projects planned for the area .

It’s much more than just one development , the plan is to make the area the downtown of the valley , an urban walkable area .

The area where you'll see the most change is North Hollywood. The NoHo Arts District continues to grow with several large apartment complexes being built around and near the North Hollywood subway station. New cafe's and restaurants in the area seem to pop up weekly. The area already has a lot of foot traffic, and will only get busier. Also, Laurel Plaza, a major development of apartments, shops and restaurants, is presently under construction at the site of the old May Co. building and Mall.

The number of Whites left is just way to low for gentrification and the poor quality of schools make it less attracted to Asian immigrants than the San Gabriel Valley.
You speak as if only white people can usher in gentrification. LA is a multicultural and multi racial city. It's been that way for years. Gentrification is happening even if not majority white.

LOL. Agree. I moved to another state. Companies are moving out, less tax base, people follow with the companies because of high taxes, big government, illegals, sanctuary state, etc. Sure, the ocean is nice (talking CA and coast in general) but you can move a few hours away and come back to visit many times during the year and be much richer both in dollar terms and in quality of life terms.

A lot of areas are expensive despite declining demographically. High housing costs don't always improve an area.

The worst parts but none of the positive attributes. By that I am referring to ugly strip malls instead of Spanish Colonial architecture. Demographic change only benefits corporations.

True . In SoCal a rising tide lifts all boats .

In most parts of the country a neighborhood has to actually improve significantly for it to go up a lot .
