A study just released by the Boston Foundation suggests that how much you  believe dense housing developments make a community better or worse might depend on how old you are.

The Boston Indicators study shows that millennials in the Greater Boston area believe small apartment buildings or town houses or small homes clustered together improves the overall feel of a community by a nearly two-to-one margin.

On the other hand, folks who are baby boomers and older tend to feel it makes a community feel “worse,” although by a smaller margin.  


The same study showed that all age demographics support building more affordable rental units but particularly millennials.
