thats what gentrification is buddy
canary wharf is located in e14 which is the london borough of tower hamlets which is the poorest borugh in the uk
but go to canary wharf and you would have no idea
up and down london there are rich parts living adjacent to some shitholes what are you talking about
The areas earmarked for redevelopment aren't traditional slums, just unused brownfield land.
Canary Wharf again utilised brownfield land to create a new expensive community.
Gentrification is the social shift of an already established community not building nice houses on wasteland because anyone can build expensive flats and justify it in London.
Newham is not seeing gentrification yet, just pockets of expensive developments, those towers in Stratford for example aren't going to impact the social class of the people who live in Romford Road are they?
You fucking plumb, that area used to be a massive ghetto before it got made into nothing to then be developed into something
What kind of a person that lives in the UK doesn't know what Foxtons does?
Taking part in gentrification atm, vienna its pretty easy, they start the shared houses for the universities, usually in a more run down but like desolate place, move pop-up stores in the empty shops and have flea markets. 7th district used to be the one but all those designers changed or made p etc so its a bit richer
6th district and 4th are the come up, the "hip" place to be. Will soon be cleared of scum
Scum get moved to the 23rd district, or outskirts of others
they love it in places like that.
As for london, I'm with smaddy. Why the fuck would I want to walk near the center/my university and have to watch out for some cockroach coming out of a corner and stabbing me for my phone.
Why do I want to see iceland those @#123 logos with some big afrikan/jamaican/ or some filthy chavvie c*nt or some polish alcoholics. There's places for those people.
Paris is pretty close to fantastic in that aspect however the police are a little lax in the inner city. I stayed with friends in a place called troccadero and it was sufficiently tranquil.
Vienna doing it will, Berlin doing it well (finally getting alexandraplatz from those greasy turks)
what can I say, life is good
lol at ever even imagining moving to that waste dump for basic people
