April 22, 2015 § Leave a comment
Craig Kerins and Robby Johnston, co-owners of The Raleigh Architecture Co., will join a panel discussion on “Redefining The American Dream: Housing Preferences of Millenials and Boomers,” presented by the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Young Leaders Group of the Triangle. The event will take place in downtown Raleigh on Tuesday, April 28, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Raleigh Grand Ballroom at the Capital Club Building, 16 West Martin Street.
The panel will examine how the shifting tastes and preferences of Millennials (people born from 1981 to 1997) and Baby Boomers (born 1946 to 1964) are influencing new speculative – or “for-sale” — housing development in the Triangle area.
Along with the latest insights from local real estate economists, marketers, developers, and builders, Kerins and Johnston will discuss urban infill housing.
For the past two years, The Raleigh Architecture Co.‘s partners have been developing, designing, and building urban infill houses – a series of modestly sized Modern, sustainable homes — on vacant lots in an old, established neighborhood just east of downtown Raleigh. The neighborhood includes all generations, from Millenials to senior citizens. Johnston, a “Generation Xer,” lives with his family in one of the houses on East Edenton Street.
Other members of the panel will be: Jay Colvin, director of the Triangle/Triad Metrostudy; Rick Bagel, developer of Wetrock Farm; Will Yadusky, director of Acquisitions and Development for Baker Residential; and Jonathan Barefoot, vice president of Business Development for Fonville Morisey Barefoot. Joseph Martinez, development manager for Northwood Ravin, will moderate the discussion.
“Redefining The American Dream” is open to non-ULI members as well as members. For admission costs and more information: http://triangle.uli.org/event/redefining-american-dream-housing-preferences-millennials-boomers/
