Link to Executive Summary
Globeville and Elyria Swansea (GES) are historically isolated and marginalized neighborhoods in northern Denver. Recently, there has been new and planned development in the neighborhoods impacting property values. Residents are beginning to feel this increased economic pressure and are fearful of being displaced. An in-depth analysis of demographic, housing, employment, and property valuations are used to identify causes and factors that can influence or already are influencing displacement in GES.
