When we rely on multifamily units to boost our population, we need to remember it will eb and flow with economic conditions. Not really surprised. Its interesting data though. Suburbs have historically been easy access ways into large cities because typically its expensive to live in the interior of an urban area. We have seen enormous growth in the interior in past years, but this was mostly because it was so cheap and sparsely populated for so long. It seems that in this first round of urban growth things might be plateauing in regards to domestic and internationals coming in from other places until more units are built and what is already existing ages more until it becomes more affordable and then the cycle will turn. What I have been seeing is most of the people that are moving into town are people that have been living in the suburbs for long periods of time, or their kids are moving into town. Its also interesting that where you lived in suburbia also informs where you will live within 610. Here in Montrose, most people I have meet, the younger crowd, are coming from Memorial, Katy, Energy Corridor, Cinco Ranch, etc... When I go to The Heights, again the younger crowd, its from places like Cypress, Tomball, Klein, The Woodlands, Spring, etc... Where I've been seeing more Domestic expats and International expats that immediately move into the city and not the suburbs are in places like Midtown, EaDo, East End, and now they are trickling into 3rd Ward. Again though this isn't surprising since there aren't a lot of vast exterior suburbs to the East of town for people to move from with the exception of those in the South like Clear Lake, etc... (which I haven't had a lot of contact with interesting enough so my sampling will be skewed. Would like some additional support here). 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
