Washington Post: What cellphone data tells us is really happening in cities

Toboggan Flats was highlighted in the Washington Post on May 14:

“Another promising idea emerging from Canada is converting office space into “toboggan flats” — co-living spaces aimed at young people. It’s easier and cheaper than converting buildings into condos because it doesn’t require a kitchen in every unit: Similar to a college dorm, there are communal kitchens and bathrooms down the hall. In addition to costing less, it’s also an easier configuration for staging group experiences such as learn-to-cook-dal night or Japanese drumming day.”

Amazing data from UofT School of Cities and some great examples of how experiences supersede materialism for GenZ.
