Abstract:Innovation districts are emerging as place-based, knowledge-based urban development strategies in diverse cities around the world. They have, however, been criticized for being non-participative top-down initiatives that encourage gentrification and income, social, and racial polarization. In 2015, Mayor Berke launched Chattanooga’s Innovation District in the city’s downtown to accelerate the transformation of Chattanooga into a knowledge city. This paper investigates the programs that are being implemented in order to mitigate the negative externalities that such a strategy can generate. Using Chattanooga as an exploratory case, the authors argue that gentrification in innovation districts can increase knowledge spillovers.

Abstract:Cohousing has caught the attention of activists, academics and decision-makers, and Danish experiences with cohousing as bofællesskaber are routinely highlighted as pioneering and successful. This article presents a mainly quantitative analysis of the development of Danish intergenerational cohousing and investigates socio-economic characteristics of residents in these communities. First, the article demonstrates how the development of Danish cohousing has been undergirded by distinct shifts in dominant tenure forms. Second, it shows that inhabitants in contemporary Danish cohousing are socio-economically distinct. This does not diminish the value of cohousing, but it problematises assumptions about the social sustainability of this housing form.
