The top storylines in multifamily this week are promoting responsible pet ownership, amenity versatility, brand messaging, tomorrow’s renters, data visualization, EVs and natural disasters, future rent growth, where the jobs are going and rising multifamily insurance.
While public fast-charging networks have dominated much of the electric vehicle (EV) charging discussion and while public investment is important to the ultimate success of EVs, owners prefer to charge vehicles at their place of residence, necessitating the prioritization of at-home charging.
