G Unit - G is for Gentrification

There is an apartment down the street from me that has more than a few characters living under it's roof. The building is need of some serious renovations and apparently some pest control. It is up for sale for over 2 million. As of right now rent is cheap for those living there. You can be sure that when the new owners roll in there will be a few changes and rent will go up as soon and as fast as it can. More on the gentrification of Strathcona here.

Below is a portrait of one of the tenants. From what he tells me he is the guy who can get you things.
