KTGY Principal Terry Willis, AIA to Speak on “Leveraging Connections: Boomers in the City” 2018 at LeadingAge Colorado Conference & Exhibition

Willis said that one of the goals of the session is to have audience members gain a better understanding about the traditional barriers that have existed between the age-qualified living community and the community at large and how a mixed­use development strategy could help dissolve these boundaries. “We will discuss ways to integrate the age-qualified community and its residents with the greater community through the development of retail, cultural districts and inter­generational socialization opportunities. We will also talk about the benefits of forming informal partnerships with local retailers and share some of the latest designs in age-qualified living environments that incorporate mixed­use, retail and cultural districts as part of the overall planning of the site,” Willis said.
