An older but probably not elderly couple walk by the construction site where apartments are being built. The advertising on the sign in front shows a young man on a bike and lists some amenities including yoga and fitness center and bike storage.
The apartments are “smart” and there will be a rooftop terrance grill and lounge too. I work with young people and older people who are interested in living in Lowertown and most are attracted to the area, and the buildings in it by the same amenities.
Right now it seems like we need more housing of every type. Affordability is also important as rents remain high and wages remain fairly flat.
