Another big thing coming is the baby boomers.
Because there are so many of them, and they are reaching the age when they will have special needs in their housing, their impact is going to be huge. This isn’t really much of a prediction—anyone can see it coming. But senior housing, they say, is going to explode in the next couple of years, and stay big for the next twenty-five. Not only will housing have to be built or modified to accommodate the boomers, but there will be an unprecedented construction boom in new medical facilities to take care of them.
