Unique $250M Retirement Community Planned With a Focus on Gay Elders
After three years studying aging and design, architect Matthias Hollwich uncovered a disturbing truth. “Age discrimination is really prevalent in our society,” he says. “Plus, you are actually discriminating against something you will be in your own future.”
His new project BOOM, a $250 million development planned for the Palm Springs area that’s coordinated by Hollwich’s firm, is banking on the fact that hundreds of aging, creative boomers — many of them part of the local gay community — will move here to do it.
