NMHC innovation panel Renewable energies, wellness and walkability are the focus of many multifamily innovations, the panel said.

SAN DIEGO—From new sustainability features to rooftop urban gardens and more efficient use of space, the next wave of innovations for apartments will make living there cheaper and better for residents, said speakers at yesterday’s NMHC’s Annual Meeting here. The panel session “What’s the Next Generation of Innovation for Multifamily” revealed a continuation of the trend toward green practices and systems, amenities based on collaboration and better ways to build and maintain apartments.
