Just Another Day In SouthLA
I really hope you all have been keeping up with the major developments currently under-construction because major gentrification is afoot, really its already started happening. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for diversity however the Crenshaw District/Inglewood is the only geographical location in Southern California that caters to African Americans, and with strong gentrification nearing this may mean an end to what has a been the West Coast African American Cultural mecca. Every culture/race has their area within LA [Jews have Mid-City West/Hancock Park, Koreans have Koreatown, Japanese, Little Tokyo, Chinese, Chinatown, Whites Westside and South Bay, Hispanics, East LA/South East LA and Gateway Cities (everywhere really), etc] this is all we have. Inglewood is planning 3000 homes for the Hollywood Park Casino land and South LA is planning to build hundreds of condos and apartments around the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza so and with Curbed LA releasing a map of the cheapest and highest rents along the currently under-construction metro lines, please expect some new neighbors. The positive of gentrification is it brings new amenities and faces to the neighborhood, the negative the neighborhood loose its cultural flare and simply becomes a bland thoroughfare for Central LA/Hollywood/DTLA to get to LAX, but don’t just take my opinion on it, weigh it out for yourself. Google gentrification in Lincoln Park, Highland Park, Echo Park, the Boyle Heights Community is doing everything in its power to fight gentrification. I just wanna give the heads up so know no one can say I didn’t see this coming. I just want to educate people on whats going on in their neighborhoods so that they have the opportunity to move on these. So if your in the process of buying, thinking about buying, want to buy please start buying in South LA. Please let me know your opinion/ideas on this matter, please feel free to leave a comment.
