Show to Focus On Adult Housing, Design Needs

Washington, DC Builders, architects and residential space planners can learn more about housing for America's growing 55+ population at the "Seniors Housing Show 2000," scheduled for Oct. 19-21 in Detroit, show sponsors announced.

The show, now in its second year, will be co-located with The Remodelers' Show, according to the event's co-sponsors, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and its National Council on Seniors Housing (NCOSH).

"The success of our first show proved that the housing industry is really starting to see the potential in building for active adults aged 55 and over," said NCOSH executive director Leslie Marks.

"Buyers in the 55-65 age group are healthier and wealthier than ever, and expect their housing choices to reflect their more active, independent lifestyles and with a Baby Boomer turning 50 every eight seconds, this market will continue to grow exponentially," Marks added.

Additional information on the show can be obtained from NCOSH at (800) 368-5242, ext. 197.
