'We have a whole new opportunity with baby boomers retiring,' Hagerman said. 'They're looking for an alternative to their traditional house in the suburbs or grand houses on the estate. They want the same quality of life they've worked hard to earn, but they want a supportive community where they can shop, exercise, recreate and have a medical facility, and they want it in a community, and those are powerful forces driving this in-fill approach.' "
