Urbanizing Suburbia considers the relationship between three current processes underway in global cities: the hyper-gentrification of inner cities, the financialization of housing, and the structural changes occurring in the suburbs.
The book examines these changes using the examples of four key global European cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, London, and Stockholm. It is a first attempt at understanding the three processes discussed here within one comprehensive explanatory framework.
The rocketing price of housing in cities around the world has led to a sizable exodus of residents from the inner cities, with many of those displaced settling in the suburban belts. This change in demographics, coupled with specific regeneration strategies implemented by municipalities, is leading to a remaking of suburbia.
