I think, if done correctly, the development could provide local jobs around the developed node. Part of that planning must involve speaking to potential businesses and promoting local employment. It's been done in other development situations. Regent Park in Toronto comes to mind. The new supermarket employs those in Regent Park first. If employed they can keep their existing housing (ie afford it). That along with affordable housing mandates are key to not just gentrifying an area but raising the whole community up.
