Says developer Marcus Hiles, Dallas is experiencing a new norm in urban residential living, similar to several of the fastest growing major U.S. cities including Houston, Atlanta, Boston, New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia. Working millennials and retiring baby boomers increasingly want luxury amenities without the labor involved. But, the there are numerous other forces at work here too. The increased demand is also driven by large segments of the population unable to qualify for a high down payment mortgage, not looking to buy, or downsizing – all at the same time. Hiles believes affordable upscale rental complexes will continue to gain popularity as affluent Americans move to the city – some by choice, others out of necessity.
