Research: Cultural, Commercial, Industrial Displacement

Displacement affects not just neighborhood residents but local businesses and cultural organizations. In this set of research projects, we describe and analyze the many ongoing forms of displacement that uproot communities, from the industrial displacement that dislocates middle-wage jobs, to the cultural displacement that occurs as rising rents continually push out artists, mom-and-pop stores, and arts organizations, to commercial displacement that happens as entire corridors gentrify.
