From San Francisco Business Times:

Bay Area

Younger Bay Area residents are more likely to support housing development compared to older residents, possibly signaling a generational shift towards more density in one of the most expensive regions in the country, according to a new report from the Bay Area Council.

Millennials, or those between 18 and 33, voiced the highest support for new housing in their neighborhood, with 64 percent saying they wanted new growth in the study. Support dropped off as the age of the respondent rose, with 60 percent of Gen X residents (ages 34 to 49) supporting new housing, 49 percent of baby boomers (50 to 64), and 44 percent of seniors (over 65) supporting new development.
