TRENDING AMENITIES AND
HOW TO MAKE THEM WORK

Over the past decade, people's expectations from multifamily residences have evolved. A growing demographic of high-income renters has generated a highly competitive market for this type of housing developments. 

ACCESSIBLE MULTIFAMILY HOUSING
MAKES GOOD $ENSE

People with disabilities are the only minority that can be discriminated against solely by the design of the built environment. Design requirements of the Fair Housing Amendments Act are intended to remedy this inequity. Today 61 million adult Americans have a disability that impacts major life activities. As the population ages the need for appropriately designed housing will only grow.
