In this second interview, Mitchell touches on a number of the emerging trends in rental living. He covers the range of sizes in new apartments, ranging from “micro-suites” offering small pied-a-terres for today’s globe-trotting executives to 3 and 4 bedroom suites ideal for families; the changing nature of communites and the diminishing need for parking spaces in new buildings, given the accessibility to public transit and car-sharing services; and the increasing variety of building services and amenities being offered, geared to both aging residents and those running their own home based businesses.
