As an office based in Boston, with some people who have been living in the area for decades, we’ve seen the city and surrounding area change significantly in the past several years. Technology
companies have thrived in the area, attracting waves of people to work high-paying jobs. Luxury apartments and businesses are popping up in the Seaport
, a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood whose growth exemplifies the trends happening around the city. In Cambridge, the large demand for housing has driven up rent and home prices
dramatically, similar to housing trends in Dorchester, Roxbury, and Jamaica Plain
. These changes have developed on top of a living city, with a history of valuable diversity and also significant inequality.
