Gentrification is defined as the middle-class settlement in renovated or redeveloped properties in older, inner-city districts formerly occupied by a lower-income population. The process was first named by Ruth Glass, as she observed the arrival of the ‘gentry’ and the accompanying social transition of several districts in central London in the early 1960s. A decade later, broader recognition of gentrification followed in large cities such as London, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Toronto and Sydney undergoing occupational transition from an industrial to a post-industrial economy. More on the topic of gentrification can be found in the Dictionary of Human Geography
