They call these spaces, GREENLULUS, or green locally unwanted land uses.

Their 5-year quantitative study, Green Trajectories, they look at the effects of greening and equity in 50 global cities over a 25 years span.

Kenneth Lewis and Tammy Gould study green gentrification in 5 projects in New York City.

Lewis and Gould's main conclusion is that sequencing matters. Equity policies and implementation must happen in advance of construction to prevent extreme displacement.
