Habitat - September/October 2017 - 9

Economy Apartment living complements our economy's
shift from being consumption driven to experience
driven. While a house provides plenty of space to store
"stuff," apartments are smaller and place people near local
restaurants and neighborhood events. This makes it easier
for people to spend money on experiences and discourages
them from regretting that they spent money on goods they
won't use for very long.
Unnecessary consumption has a huge environmental
footprint, e.g., generating more carbon to produce and
transport the product and consuming scarce landfill space
when it's tossed away. Spending money locally benefits both
the environment and the local economy. By making local
experiential options more convenient and accumulating
too much stuff less convenient, apartments encourage local
spending while discouraging overconsumption. The small
entrepreneurs who own eclectic and instinctive retail shops
and restaurants benefit. These businesses add charm and
uniqueness to local neighborhoods.
Water Shared outside areas like greenspaces and pools
where residents can meet new people and build a sense of
community are a hallmark of apartment life.
Sharing greenspaces not only benefits residents, but their
enjoyment and maintenance also require far less water use
than individual lawns or pools require.
I hope you find these perspectives to be helpful in whatever
position you hold, whether you are a Leasing Consultant
selling why apartment life is a greener choice to a prospect,
or you are a Managing Partner explaining the green benefits
of multifamily to an investor, or lastly, you are trying to build
in an area that is adverse to apartments, these points should
benefit your conversation.
In closing, I hope everyone had a fantastic and productive
summer. I look forward to seeing all of you over the coming
months at this packed line up of incredible events. Thanks for
all you do for the association each and every day.
