Yahoo! News - Nice view: Cities of all sizes embracing high-rise living: " A major demographic shift. Baby boomers are inheriting wealth at the same time that they're becoming empty nesters. 'We're retiring earlier, and we want to be able to lock and leave,' Bottfeld says. 'For people in their 50s to their 70s, their most precious commodity is time.'
People don't want to spend time mowing lawns, sitting in rush-hour traffic or getting in their cars to pick up the dry-cleaning. If they live in a downtown high-rise, there's no grass to cut, they often can walk to work and cultural events, and many high-rises have on-site concierge service to take care of life's every little need."
this sounds like my life!
