Rennification | marketing | The process by which the most saleable facets of a neighbourhood’s culture and character – its independent restaurants, coolest shops, interesting galleries, charming cafes, et cetera – are crudely appropriated by real estate marketers and presented in promotional materials as added lifestyle benefits to prospective condo buyers. The term was inspired by Rennie Marketing Systems, a Vancouver company that pioneered and mastered this dark art.
