As Baltimore has experienced a resurgence of interest from both developers and residents over the last decade, city officials have worked to encourage new investment in neighborhoods that have struggled with disinvestment and neglect for many years. However, this has often come at the expense of longtime residents who are displaced by rising rents and property values. Developers have targeted neighborhoods such as Station North, Remington, and Hampden for investment, leading to rising property values and an influx of wealthier residents, which has led to a displacement of lower-income residents. Critics of gentrification argue that these neighborhoods are being transformed at the expense of the people who have lived there for generations, and that city officials have not done enough to protect these residents.
