It has been steadily improving for the past ten years. It's to the point now where every block and alley is perfectly safe to walk down. That eventuality was inconceivable up through about 2006.

Unless we hit another major recession the area should be just about built-out by 2025. There are still 75-100 individual vacant lots which are being filled one-by-one with single-family homes. There are about five major surface parking lots left but I imagine that we'll see apartment complexes go up on those shortly.

Also, redevelopment has started to creep west into the West End. That neighborhood is basically a continuation of the same sorts of buildings but was much more chopped-up in the 1950s and 60s. There aren't too many signs of it now but I'd expect that by 2030 that will be mostly rehabbed.
