Abstract:

ABSTRACT:  Much popular speculation and scientific thinking continues to hold that inner‐city neighborhoods cannot be redeveloped in a manner that is congenial to a broad array of interests and people. Lower income and minority citizens are not supposed to find a permanent place in redeveloped neighborhoods, especially, perhaps, when the rebuilding process is influenced strongly by corporations with a stake in the area being rehabilitated. This reassessment of five redevelopment campaigns in Saint Louis affirms that rebuilding sponsored by businesses and nonprofit institutions and aided by government agencies can attract and hold persons from different backgrounds, stages of life, and social classes. Maintaining a racial mix of people that is proportionate to their representation in the general population much less skewed toward becoming whiter is difficult, however.
