The Misconception of Modern Residencies

A new video from Vox explains the public perception of new multifamily developments, and why some label these new modern-style structures as "gentrification buildings."

There's a lot that we get wrong when we see a new construction complex. While some view spectacular innovative architecture, others see the displacement of residents and the gentrification of an area. However, these complexes are actually affordable, and help fight against the issues some claim they cause.

Interestingly, the style of modern multifamily buildings look this way for multiple reasons: aesthetic and low cost to build.
