The City of Cincinnati's Kenyon Barr project called for the creation of a center for light industry in the lower portion of the West End. In the late 1950s, the city purchased and razed more than 2,000 structures and resold the property to private developers to create the neighborhood now known as Queensgate. The project displaced more than 20,000 residents, 97 percent of whom were African-Americans and largely low-income.
