Professor Dunham-Jones envisions re-using dead retail for seniors housing

External News Details

As the seniors housing occupancy rate continues to rise, Georgia Tech Professor Ellen Dunham-Jones says there are many locations across the country where seniors housing is taking over former retail properties. “Every community has a dead big box or vacant strip mall that’s often a prime site for seniors housing,” she says. “This matches the demand, as the seniors are still there in the community, and they don’t want to leave.”
