Integrating the Inner City: The Promise and Peril of Mixed-Income Public Housing Transformation examines Chicago’s Plan for Transformation, a public- private venture to transform high-poverty public housing complexes into mixed-income developments, the largest-scale such effort in the U.S. Chaskin and Joseph find that while considerable progress has been made in dramatically transforming the complexes physically, the social environment in the new developments is generally characterized by the continued exclusion and marginalization of the low-income residents, which illuminates the challenges and limitations of mixed-income communities as a solution to urban poverty.
