Katie McCamant is quoted: "McCamant predicts the number [of cohousing communities] will double within 10 years."
One of my quotes: "Baby boomers are demanding a better way to live. We want to be sustainable; we want community, happiness."
This upbeat profile is dampened with this perspective: Christopher Leinberger, a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, says although cohos mesh philosophically with what many aging baby boomers want—dense, walkable communities—so do a lot of traditional developments that don't come with so many legal and financial headaches...."Banks still underwrite experience every bit as much as they underwrite balance sheets."
