What US Aging Population Means for Office Buildings

30th December, 2013 - Posted by Jeffrey S. Weil, MCR.h, SIOR - No Comments

How will the aging boomer population affect the design of office space as well as change the types of occupancy? “Today, 10,000 Baby Boomers reached 65. The same thing happened yesterday and the same thing will happen tomorrow. In fact every day, for the next 15 years 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach that age milestone.” What does this mean for the many two-story smaller office buildings without elevators, both the aging CPA’s, lawyers and insurance agents housed on second floor offices still unable or unwilling to, retire, as well as their aging clientele, an increasing number who may be arriving with a walker or wheelchair? What does this mean even for Class A buildings with inconvenient disabled parking or less accessible for aging customers using public transportation?
