Globalization of Major Cities

Back in October, there was a topic raised about micro nations.

Then I came across this billboard on the Interstate which looks to be an inevitable project. https://globalizationofcalifornia.com/

Basically, the idea is to replace cities with Regions.

Obviously, there is much more nuance to the subject, but when a major city like Oakland is more commonly being referred to as the East Bay, which is non-descript and easy for people who are not from here to describe, then I am forced to think about who is helped vs. who is hurt.

I know this is a common practice is Real Estate, but my question for those who reside in major cities, have you noticed "up and coming" parts of your city being renamed?
