Personally, I think that entrepreneurial urbanism has worked best in directing reinvestment to urban communities which are in dire need of physical reinvestment and revitalization. As was discussed in the lecture this week, Manchester, NYC, Washington DC, and other are great examples of how this approach to urban development has yielded huge redevelopment gains in such a short amount of time. In less that two decades, the neighborhoods in DC that housed brothels, drug related activity, and despair generally have made a complete turn around. Some of these communities, such as Shaw, have gone from being the least to the most sought after neighborhoods. What worries me about entrepreneurial urbanism however is how it fails to address societal inequities and can often exacerbate them.
