What do you think are the disadvantages of gentrification?

Except that it remains less attractive for people with low incomes to stay in the neighbourhood or neighbourhood, there are few disadvantages compared to other neighbourhoods or neighbourhoods.I relatiquate this disadvantage because it has always been difficult for these people to find an appropriate home. They actually have less freedom by definition to live where they want. It is also a fact that cities are changing and are actually getting richer in a continuous process, because the centre function they fulfill is growing. As a result, it demands more and more space (think of governments, universities, art institutions, corporate headquarters, hubs of infrastructure/stations/airports, international institutions, commercial centres, hospitality and Entertainment centres, etc.), but also housing for a highly educated and well-paid framework. All that drives the value of real estate up and that washes back to neighbourhoods that are further from the centre. If a city is large enough, subcenters are forming their own dynamics.
Another disadvantage of gentrification could be beautification: decorating-or prettier than it was-from the original buildings.The Jordaan was not a beautiful neighbourhood, but now it looks neat: sleek in the lacquer and with manicured fa莽ade gardens. There you can not love, but that is a matter of taste. And you cannot stop the time. There are no people living there in damp cellars, as in the 19th century. Luckily but…

This has been applied in the birder districts of yesteryear, which eliminated 70% of the social rental properties and made room for (mainly) houses for sale, with the aim of gaining higher incomes and a better level of education in the district, with a morality to which old Could attract residents.In one of these magnificence/strength neighbourhoods, as they were later mentioned, I came to live and was an active member of the Wijkmanagement group. I can only say something about the first years after this has been applied, because after 9 years I moved.

Theoretically it sounded nice, only the way the mix came about is tricky.What arose was a kind of enclave, a neighbourhood with the social housing and the people who felt isolated from the rest. So you should also see it, between the 7 newly built streets 1 old. In old streets a sofa set in the front yard, in another a carport with middle divisionist.

For the newcomers, the culture in school also had some problems.The children did not understand each other, the one group was already accustomed from the street, and the other was used not to do it. Many children had a language deficit and the newcomers did not. In a class with 1 teacher that was difficult to bring to level. In any case the first years they have not saved this either.

How it is now, I doubt it.It seems to Me that the newcomers find it well. The construction companies and the municipality have been good at Gecasht, 600 homes I think. In the old streets I saw no change last. Did the old people have anything to do with it? A next generation will answer that.
