How Millennial Taste Is Influencing Architecture, Rochester, New York

Millennials are the single largest generation in America. Today, their unique tastes and idiosyncratic preferences are having a profound impact on entertainment media, restaurants, and especially architecture. Whether you’re planning an office building or constructing a multi-family residential complex, appealing to the needs of younger buyers and workers is key to a successful design. Below are a few characteristics that appeal to millennials.

Designing Architecture for the Millennial Generation

Urban Design

Millennials are attracted to walkable communities in urban cores. Due to these preferences, adaptive reuse projects are popular, as unused industrial and commercial space is often located in desirable areas. Rather than planning new construction, builders should consider redesigning an existing warehouse into apartments or commercial space with open floor plans.

Consider the Amenities

architectureWhen choosing a location, consider whether the local area offers amenities that typically attract younger residents and workers. Millennials largely forgo driving in favor of biking or taking public transportation, so building projects located near commercial districts and transportation hubs are ideal. New residential complexes should consider adding dog parks and other features educated millennials look for when deciding where to live.

Go Green

Millennials are often concerned with reducing the environmental impact of their activities. When building with younger residents in mind, incorporate advanced energy-efficient appliances, use eco-friendly building materials, and consider adding additional green space.
