Gentrification  and urban gentrification refer to the changes that result when wealthier people ("gentry") acquire or rent property in low income and working class communities. Urban gentrification is associated with movement  Consequent to gentrification, the average income increases and average family size decreases in the community. It is commonly believed that this results in the poorer native residents of the neighborhood, being unable to pay increased rents, house prices, and property taxes  being displaced. Often old industrial buildings are converted to residences and shops. In addition, new businesses, catering to a more affluent base of consumers, move in, further increasing the appeal to more affluent migrants and decreasing the accessibility to the poor.

Urban gentrification occasionally changes the culturally heterogeneous  character of a community or neighborhood to a more economically homogeneous community that some describe as having a suburban character. This process is sometimes made feasible by government-sponsored private real estate investment repairing the local infrastructure  via deferred taxes, mortgages for poor and for first-time house buyers, and financial incentives for the owners of decayed rental housing. Once in place, these economic development   actions tend to reduce local property crime, increase property values  and prices, and increase tax revenues.

Political action, to either promote or oppose the gentrification, is often the community's response against unintended economic eviction caused by rising rents that make continued residence in their dwellings unfeasible.The rise in property values causes property taxes based on property values to increase; resident owners unable to pay the taxes are forced to sell their dwellings and move to a cheaper community

 In Berlin, this process is well underway.The Berlin culture loses the most important places for art in the city, the places where culture is created, which is produced in those areas beyond commerce.

These special inner-city art space mean for the city and its people freedom and they provide education and Berlin flair. The very imperfect such urban places has its charm, is the source for art and has great appeal.

In the last two years, Berlin has changed. Artspaces such as  Tacheles or C / O  Museum are threatened or are abandoned. Now the LA 54 is tuned. Located in the Landsberger Allee 54, in an old brewery, emerging international cultural center house about 100 artists from different artistic disciplines including painting, performance, sculpture, fashion design, photography, theater, music, film

The building itself is 150 years old. There the former beer brewery Patzenhofer whose owner came to Berlin in 1855 and opened in the Landsberger Allee in 1877 to 1896 to plans by the architect Arthur Rohmer and Antiquity & Zadek.In 2007, this place attracts art place and since then tourists from different countries and also street art to artists. Now fall into this building and its working artists of gentrification.

Now  Berlin is  selling its magic.
