G. Back to School: Planning a Community for Future Consumers

Broadview at Purchase College takes full advantage of its location on a sprawling college campus in upstate New York to offer residents access to myriad learning opportunities. But the life plan community has its own lessons to teach about how to incorporate the needs of tomorrow’s residents into today’s retirement communities. This session will focus on how developers used strategic planning, data analysis, market research, focus groups, and crowdsourcing to design a community that emphasizes intergenerational, life-long learning, and uses amenities and access to Purchase College’s 500-acre campus to enhance resident quality of life for residents from all income levels.
