Study says Housing Demands in Future Include More Room for Seniors and More Rentals

A new study predicting changes in Metro Detroit’s housing needs over the next few decades shows several areas that may need attention from policy makers. The Urban Institute’s Southeast Michigan Housing Futures study shows households have been declining in Detroit while the suburbs have grown.

However, Urban Institute Research Associate, Mark Treskon, tells WDET’s Amy Miller the study finds several changes likely to occur between and 2040.

What we’re finding is, especially as the city’s population loss slows down and eventually starts gaining some people again. The challenges facing the region are things that are more shared. Not just the city, but communities throughout the southeast part of Michigan”    -Mark Treskon
