The article analyzes the essence of urban gentrification, examines the main factors affecting this process, and considers different definitions of gentrification depending on the context. It was found that gentrification is a process of economic, socio-cultural and physical restructuring of urban areas, which is accompanied by a change in the social and ethnic composition of the population. The influence of globalization, economic and socio-cultural factors on the development of gentrification in modern urban environments is studied. The paper claims that gentrification can be generalized to a globally applicable paradigm. However, the challenge in studying gentrification in any country is to transfer and adapt a broad paradigm that can capture the complexities of local conditions. Scholars studying gentrification recognize the local and national differences that are specific to each country and work to establish their own theories. Among the key issues under consideration are the impact of gentrification on social inequality, displacement of the local population, and changes in the cultural landscape of cities. The author of the study studies possible adaptation strategies and social policies aimed at reducing the negative consequences of gentrification for the local population. It is clarified that in different countries gentrification has its own characteristics and manifests itself differently due to the national context, legislation, historical legacy and economic policy. The study also clarified that national characteristics are important for the development of urban development management strategies and social policies in order to ensure sustainability and equality in the development of cities around the world. The article emphasizes that gentrification can have both positive and negative consequences, and it is important to find a balance between the development of the city and the preservation of socio-cultural diversity. The author of the article emphasizes the importance of community participation and the development of strategies aimed at ensuring fair and sustainable urban development. Particular attention is paid to the role of the state and local governments in regulating gentrification, as well as possible innovative solutions to ensure the sustainable development of urban facilities and promote sustainable growth. The paper's research has important practical implications for urban planning and management, as well as for anyone interested in urban development issues and changes in urban environments.
