SoHo ("south of Houston") is frequently presented as the progenitor of a new form of twentieth-century urban development.

The Lofts of Soho examines how, from 1960-1980, residents transformed the New York industrial neighborhood of SoHo into an artists’ district, and created the conditions under which it evolved into an upper-income, gentrified area. The author argues that the methods of arts-driven urban development that took root in Soho (residential lofts, the adaptive reuse of industrial space, gallery-driven commercial districts, the idea of the artist as a central urban actor, and public policies designed to create vibrant neighborhoods through the arts) would catch on nationally and globally in the ensuing decades.
