Talented young adults are continuing to choose urban cores, fueling economic growth and urban revitalization, according to a study.
City Observatory, a research-oriented website focused on cities, released “The Young and Restless and the Nation’s Cities” October 20, which details the impacts of the growing numbers of educated young adults choosing to live in cities.
Based in Portland, Oregon, City Observatory is run by economist Joe Cortright and funded by the Knight Foundation.
