This chapter seeks to increase the ‘evidence base’ on gentrification in Latin American cities through a longitudinal study of the La Boca, San Telmo and Barracas quarters in Buenos Aires. Interestingly, gentrification in Buenos Aires is first and foremost about providing cultural, touristic, educational, and commercial, etc. services for high income groups; and only after that about housing for higher income groups.

Keywords:   evidence base, Argentina, Latin America, longitudinal study, services
