This chapter examines the relationships of the mixed-income developments to the broader neighborhoods in which they sit and the extent to which, beyond social and physical integration among residents on the footprint of the development, the Plan for Transformation is more broadly integrating these new communities into the fabric of the broader neighborhoods and city. We look at the ways in which the neighborhoods in which each site is embedded are changing socially and economically and explore whether relocated public housing residents are benefiting from these changes. We examine the spatial, social, and organizational mechanisms that connect (or fail to promote) relationships between residents of the development and those in the broader neighborhood, particularly with regard to cross-class relationships and the integration of public housing residents.

Keywords:   broader neighbourhood, social integration, physical integration, neighborhood change
