LOS ANGELES, CA – According to Manny Gonzalez, FAIA, LEED AP and principal, with international, award-winning KTGY Architecture + Planning, National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) research shows that aging boomers will represent a larger share of growth in the apartment market as millennials begin to marry, have children and buy homes.
From affordable senior rentals to luxury living, the demand for age-qualified apartment homes is higher than ever. And with 10,000 people a day turning 65 through 2030 that demand will continue to grow. “Just like the millennials who fueled the recent surge in apartment construction, the 55+ renters are looking for many of the same things. They rank proximity to grocery stores, dining and entertainment at the top of their list,” Gonzalez said.
