As the Baby Boomer generation begins to enter retirement or become empty nesters, many of these homeowners are looking to downsize. They don’t want the upkeep of a big yard and house. Senior housing has evolved quite a bit over the past decade. In many ways, this group is looking for the same experience as that of their millennial children—they want to live in an all-inclusive place where they don’t have to worry about maintaining a home. For young professionals, married couples without children, and empty-nesters, the freedom, flexibility, and diverse set of options make renting an apartment home the right choice. Designing Spaces visits The Metropolitan at Village at Leesburg, Virginia to see how baby boomers are enjoying an active new lifestyle as part of an apartment community.
