    <p>Gentrification has emerged in post-socialist cities since the 1990s. This paper aims to clarify three factors: the changing geographical locations, causes, and consequences of contemporary gentrification in East Berlin. In the 1990s, the German government undertook the restitution of properties to owners or their descendants. In the mid-1990s, the number of subsidized refurbishments of historical houses had increased in Prenzlauer Berg. By the late 1990s, the number of privately financed refurbishments had increased and, in the late 2000s, the numbers of affluent people had risen in the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg ward. In Friedrichshain, the population had multiplied in the districts not far from the city center. The working classes lived in Friedrichshain, and there were many dilapidated historical apartments. Creative industries and multinational companies have accumulated along the Spree river since the mid-2000s. The increase of multinational occupants has been caused by them in Friedrichshain. The atmosphere in the neighborhood has been created by programs of renovation that have facilitated gentrification in Friedrichshain. In the 2000s, gated communities of luxury housing were also developed. Historical buildings in the Gründerzeit period were targeted for renovation by developers. There is also a new development of condominiums which imitates the contemporaneous architectural style of Gründerzeit and historical landscapes since Gründerziet have been destroyed by the new construction of condominiums. Prices are higher in new-build housing units than in renovated housing units and rising housing prices have affected the formerly affordable housing markets in Berlin.</p>
