Steve Cameron Cameron: “As developers, we’re seeing 55-plus homes being built with an increasing emphasis on indoor/outdoor living, more options for pet owners, floor plans that are open, yet provide space for guests, energy efficiency and high-speed Internet and wireless connectivity.”

NEWPORT BEACH, CA—Baby Boomers are seeking a high level of resort-style services and facilities, to be surrounded by open space with access to upscale amenities and rich social programming that keeps them engaged and active, Foremost Cos.’ president Steve Cameron tells GlobeSt.com. Forestar Toscana Development Co., a venture between Foremost and a controlled affiliate of Starwood Capital Group, recently reported that PulteGroup’s Del Webb brand is building the first two neighborhoods within Terramor, a new master-planned community in Southern California. Built within a region with few 55-plus new home options, the neighborhoods—which are expected to open in spring 2017—aims to answer unmet buyer demand for the region’s Baby-Boomer population. We spoke with Cameron about Foremost’s focus for 2017, housing trends and what Baby Boomers are looking for in 55-plus communities today.
