The Next Wave of Mixed-Use Senior Housing Development

After a generation of isolation in suburban and rural developments, seniors are rebelling, demanding residential options closer to the action – in beach communities, near college campuses and especially urban centers.

More new developments will feature an array of restaurants, bars, banks, shopping and even common areas shared with colleges and elementary schools. This emphasis on urban, mixed-use developments will not only give residents access to a wider variety of social and cultural options, but will also be convenient for the growing number who plan to continue working into their 80s and beyond.
