Seniors housing developers compete for Global Award


The fifteenth entry for the seniors housing Global Awards 2017 has been received.

HWKN’s age-focused projects include Skyler – a concept for 600 residential units, including micro studios, pooled apartments and duplexes

Hollwich said that WeLive – a co-living brand that HWKN is collaborating with – creates homes that are just as suitable for the baby-boomer generation as they are for young people.

Like many examples of co-living, WeLive offers small, serviced, dorm-style rooms, but residents also have access to a wide range of communal facilities, including a gym, a mailroom, bars, event spaces and a hot tub.

“WeLive is looking into serving the millennials but it goes full circle,” he said. “I think it is the perfect product for the boomers, because their interests are very similar, about experiences, about community, about safety and security.”
