Today’s Millennial Pins: March 23, 2016

Good morning, it’s March 23, a Wednesday. Here are today’s pins.

The Peachtree Corners City Council recently approved a development that includes a 295-unit Millennial complex that includes a boat dock, pool, paddle boats, cyber cafe, dog park, retail stores and wine and spirits shop. I just hope they don’t actually call it a “cyber cafe.”

Further, he says Millennials are more eager than other generations spread the Gospel in their daily lives.  He’s right. Millennials have shown to be altruistic and charitable. It’s time for Christians to open their doors.

On top is Mexico City, followed by Bangkok, Istanbul, Rio De Janeiro and Moscow. In North America Mexico City is followed by Los Angeles, then San Francisco, Vancouver and New York. Seattle, San Jose, Honolulu, Toronto and Miami are next. Traffic isn’t a huge reason people move, but it’ll be interesting to track how much traffic remains in places like San Francisco, Seattle and San Jose (tech and Millennial heavy) over the next 10 years.

It seems to hit Millennial consumers who live in small apartments, work in smaller, crowded spaces, and take their work home.
