SHIT GENTRIFIERS SAY

Image

Undesirable, but close-ish to the city >>

Cheap rent / “Rundown” >>

POC / Poor communities move in and build infrastructure
>>

Perceived threat and racist/classist stigma >>

Creatives / students / activists move in for “ethnic” or “edgy” vibe>>

Appeal/nightlife/aesthetics >>

Interest / influx >>

Disposable Incomes and “underground” media hype >>

White-washed hype and govt approval/support >>

Development / Big yucky businesses >>

Rising property prices / Displacement.
