Middle class people do not look down or up based on income or anything else. When we meet people, we don't ask what their income or their home address are or whether they rent or own.
First of all, you can't speak for all 'middle class people' as if it is a homogenous group.
Second, if you don't look down or up based on 'income or anything else,' then why would you avoid asking income level, etc.?
Finally, what I think you and most people, regardless of class level, fail to get is that the criteria for evaluating neighborhoods, infrastructure, retail areas, downtowns, etc. etc. should be whether they make human life sustainable into the future for 100s of millennia. If it doesn't pass the 100,000+ years into the future sustainability test, it should be changed.
