With the installation of the new light rail transit system in the city, more companies are focusing on building apartmentcomplexes close to the system. As a resultof older demographics having a weaker employment rate, they are renting for a longer period of time. As for the younger demographic, they have a higher employment rate, so a larger percentage of this group is renting. All of these factors are helping to drive the construction of rental buildings.
