Houston attracts young and restless college grads

"Young and restless" demographic moving closer to city centers
  • Recent migration patterns show that 25 to 34-year-olds are moving closer to city centers.
  • Houston is one metro that has benefited greatly from this trend.
  • In a study of 51 large metros, young adults are choosing most large metros to put down roots.

When young college graduates decide where to move, they are not just looking at the usual suspects, like New York, Washington and San Francisco.

Recent research from think tank City Observatory , which studies various trends on urban living, indicated that young adults are moving to urban centers, especially the close-in neighborhoods within three miles of the center of the central business district.
