The burgess model

The city is divided into series of concentric zones around the CBD. Lower income groups in the inncer city and middle class in the outer districts

  • the oldest housing is closest to the CBD
  • The newest housing is further away, new housing is classes as superior to old. 

gentrification is occuring as there is a rise in managed jobs and there are longer hours of working which means no community time.
