Young adults want to live close to transit, high-density housing, and urban amenities, says research out of the University of Waterloo appearing in an upcoming issue of the Canadian Geographer.
“The research shows that young adults are living in urban neighbourhoods that are in line with planners’ sustainability goals, such as walkability and higher density,” said Moos, a professor in the School of Planning at Waterloo. “Even after accounting for demographic changes, young adults in Vancouver today are more likely to live in higher-density housing than in the past, which indicates a shift toward mor¬e sustainable location patterns. These trends are influenced by housing costs.”
