Abstract

The rise of gentrification in many North American cities has been much commented upon. But according to new research, trends towards gentrification are only part of the story. Nick Revington looks at new research from Markus Moos which finds that high-density urban redevelopment is also associated with a younger population. This process of ‘youthification’ is driven by young people’s desire for smaller households and closer proximity to amenities, as well as higher housing costs and a more uncertain labor market.
