Lennar, a builder of quality homes for all generations, is introducing its new revolutionary concept to Minnesota on September 8.
Lennar is bringing a new trend in the housing industry to its Bonaire community situated in Maple Grove on Saturday and this multi-generational living concept, being introduced by the homebuilder, will be coming to many other communities of Lennar as well.
After introducing this concept in other areas, the company has seen enormous interest from the pubic. Lennar will be the first homebuilder to introduce this “never before seen” concept to Minnesota. Extended family that lives together has made a significant return to American living. This multi-generational living trend has inspired Lennar to design a home that favors extended family to live together in a single home, except with individual living spaces.
Lennar, after carrying out many researches and seeing a growing interest for this type of living condition, has determined to design a unique floorplan that can house different living arrangements as well as provide great use of square footage, space and privacy.
Studies reveal that one out of six people in the country already live in a multi-generational home and that there will be a remarkable trend by 2020 for this type of household. The economy has powerfully contributed to this type of living space. Many aging parents and college-age children are finding it essential to live together in one home and by doing that they are able to reduce expenses and share a mortgage.
Bill Burgess, Lennar's Minnesota Division President, stated that the company’s Next Gen - The Home within a home is fundamentally two homes with single payment, making life comfortable, affordable and flexible to one’s requirements.
Each NEXT GEN suite comprises a separate entrance, kitchenette, laundry, living room, one-car garage and private outdoor living space. The homebuilder created this new floorplan to be integrated into the main floorplan of a home in order to provide a separate space and at the same time offer direct entry from the main house depending upon the requirements of the family.
