Often overlooked by developers and planners studying the housing needs of Generation Y, the fastest-growing age group in the US is actually the one aged 65 and older, says John K. McIlwain, ULI senior resident fellow/J. Ronald Terwilliger Chair for Housing.
Aging but active baby boomers, as well as the generations before them, are creating new opportunities as well as challenges for the US housing industry as it strives to meet the diverse lifestyle needs of people in various phases of their senior years, according to McIlwain, author of a recent ULI publication, Housing in America: The Baby Boomers Turn 65.
You can hear from ULI’s McIlwain and other industry leaders focusing on the emerging housing needs of the 65-and-better generation at ULI’s 2013 Real Estate Trends Conference, “Life Cycles in the New Economy – People and Places” to be held Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at the Ronald Reagan Center in Washington, DC. Joining McIlwain will be David Mayhood of The Mayhood Company, Julie Smith of Bozzuto Management Company, and Dan Cinelli of Perkins Eastman on a panel moderated by Todd Harff of Creating Results.
