Very very interesting blog post. It shows that we need to plan longterm and our horizons need to be longer when we think of urban development "projects". Also, we need to allow incrementalism on housing improvements vs immediate upgrades that always cause downward raiding by middle classes and displacement. It would be interesting to know how many of the inhabitants are the original ones. Look forward to reading more about this case and its lessons. We certainly need some new thinking in this space!
