Trends in Marketing: Downtown Neighborhood Pride? Or Takeover?

New, 30 comments

Developer KOR Group takes an interesting tack at unloading Barker Block lofts, their big development in downtown's Arts District. While their model is pretty standard for downtown advertising—handsome, thirty-something, arty—their message isn't, focusing more on urban pioneering and less on rooftop pools. "THIS IS MY BLOCK... PRIDE. OWNERSHIP. COMMUNITY... Join the movement." Is the ad a simple attempt to sell condos through nabe love or a cheap shot at unloading units through a glamorized portrayal of white gentrification? Discuss.
