Lagging economy holds back gentrification in Chicago: report

Chicago ranked seventh among U.S. cities for the number of Census tracts that gentrified between 2000 and 2013, according to a new report by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition. Two researchers behind the “Shifting Neighborhoods” study said one main reason for the relatively low ranking is Chicago’s lagging recovery from the recession, since a vibrant economy spurs more housing investment and displacement. Another is the city’s history of racial segregation, which makes some potential buyers reluctant to move into minority neighborhoods and limits the amount of minority displacement. [Crain’s]
