Exploring the Senior Living Landscape

Over the past few years, middle market to luxury senior living developments have been increasingly sprouting up across major cities, especially in places like New York, driven by an aging population of baby boomers who are still socially and culturally active. Today's seniors are retiring later, traveling more, and embarking on nontraditional live/work/play paths, which include urban lifestyles and proximity to their children. New York itself is home to nearly 3.5 million residents ages 65 and above. And the 75+ population in the United States is projected to grow 50 percent in the next 10 years, doubling in the next 20. The objective of the panel is the exploration of trends, challenges, and opportunities that define this rapidly changing industry, from middle market to luxury senior developments. Key discussion points include hospitality versus health care, demographic shifts, innovations in design and technology, and investor interest. Panelists will include an owner/developer of senior living projects, a senior living operator, and an architect/design expert.

From Competitiveness to Well-Being: Changing Priorities for Cities?

This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities cities face with a focus on the U.S./North American context from a variety of different perspectives—economic, social, and governance. Many cities are incredibly desirable and expensive places to live. However, they are struggling with perceptions about safety, quality of life, underlying and persistent inequities, the economic health of city centers, and balancing budgets. What are the major shared challenges cities are confronting and how are they grappling with them? What new opportunities does this moment present? New York City has returned to pre-Covid unemployment levels (as of September 2023) but is grappling with a deepening affordable housing crisis, strained municipal budgets, and long-term climate risks, among other challenges. Is there an emerging playbook for addressing this moment? How is NYC handling these challenges? And, more optimistically, where are the opportunities?
