Street Next to MCAD and MIA


I saw evidence of gentrification in this street running parallel to the Minnesota College of Art and Design Campus, right next to MIA. One can see the older houses, many of which are in somewhat poor condition, while farther down the street is an condo complex similar to others found throughout the Twin Cities. We were asked in our field study to consider the socioeconomic status of the area around MIA. I saw many lower-income apartment blocks and older houses, but the apartment complex in this picture is an example of newer buildings that seem to be creeping into the area. This is evidence of gentrification, likely resulting from the presence of MIA and the college campus.
