Towns for older people

A Dutch consortium of consultants and project developers carried out a feasibility study for bringing to the Netherlands the concept of towns for older people, on the model of Sun City in the United States. "It is estimated that four million people aged 55 or older are interested in the idea of living in a town for senior citizens. Far from noisy children and two-salary households with no time to chat or have a cup of coffee. Such a city, geared entirely to the lifestyle of older people, is economically viable. According to the consortium, it is just a matter of time before neighborhoods for the elderly are a reality in the Netherlands."
