In addition to creating and expanding opportunities for a full spectrum of quality, mixed-income, mixed-use housing, the Terwilliger Center research aims to elevate best practices in residential development. The Residential Futures series captures the thoughtful comments and thought-provoking ideas from ULI members and others on what’s next for residential development.
Residential Futures: Thought-Provoking Ideas on What’s Next for Master-Planned Communities
After the housing bubble burst in 2008, many communities were hit hard by foreclosures, creating widespread homeownership losses for communities across the country. As the economy continues to recover and markets begin to stabilize, one thing is certain: the “old” normal will not return because consumer preferences are changing.
Building on a 2012 ULI Spring Meeting panel discussion on the future of residential development, this discussion paper captures thought-provoking ideas on what’s next for master-planned communities (MPC) from industry leaders in the ULI network. This discussion paper should not be considered an analysis of the market or a prediction of what will happen, rather it is a platform from which to engage in further discussion on the future of MPC development in general.
Residential Futures II: Thought-Provoking Ideas on What’s Next for Multigenerational Housing and Intergenerational Communities
Many communities are evolving to provide a different built environment and a new level of amenities that support improved health outcomes, active living and resident interaction. This type of planning and development is especially needed as the two largest generations of our time, the baby boomer and generation continue to make choices about the types of communities and housing they will live in. These generations, and others, are also making important choices about how to live together. This discussion paper should not be considered as an analysis of the market by ULI or a prediction by ULI of what will happen, rather it is a platform from which to engage in further discussion on the future of intergenerational living.
In the spring of 2013, the leadership of two ULI product councils – the Senior Housing Council and the Community Development Council – came together to discuss intergenerational living. Residential Futures II captures thoughtful comments and thought-provoking ideas from ULI members on what’s next for intergenerational communities and multigenerational housing.
