In the context of globalization, the rapid development of tertiary industry tourism, the middle class and artists began to consciously transform the historic districts, tourism gentrification as an important branch of gentrification theory. With the rapid development of global tourism, tourism gentrification phenomenon began to show a global spread. On the one hand, the gentrification of historic districts optimizes the urban industrial structure and promotes the development of tertiary industry and service industry. On the other hand, improving the standard of living of some people has intensified the gap between the wealthy and the poor, and excessive commercialization has made consumers dull. Therefore, the trend at this stage is modest urbanization, and it is suggested to build composite blocks.
