Terraces on Brompton Tenants Unite To Fight Rent Hike and Poor Conditions
MONTROSE LOCAL TENANTS
The rapid gentrification of the Montrose neighborhood is an attack on the rich queer history of the neighborhood and its important community. Once a safe haven for the LGBTQIA+ and working class community, it is now becoming impossible to afford for many low income and aging tenants. The changing neighborhood dynamics also exposes the LGBTQIA+ community to potential housing discrimination from new landlords who have no interest in maintaining a safe place for them. Turning a historically affordable and inclusive neighborhood into a place of expensive, unattainable high rises and mansions turned quadplex starting at $1,500 for a one bedroom is unacceptable. With Montrose’s long history of emphasizing community, and it’s current population of vocal left leaning tenants, we believe the Montrose Local will become a major force for tenant organizing in Houston.
