London's local Olympic legacy : small business displacement, 'clone town' effect and the production of 'urban blandscapes' / Michael B. Duignan

Duignan, Michael B.

London’s candidature bid projected an irresistible legacy of lasting benefits for host communities and small businesses. Yet, local post-Games perspectives paint a contrasted picture – one of becoming displaced. This paper aims to draw on event legacy, specifically in relation to rising rents, threats to small business sustainability and impact on place development by empirically examining London’s local embryonic legacies forming across one ex-hosting Olympic community: central Greenwich.
