According to Philly.com reports [late last month], Philadelphia ranks sixth amongst major metropolitans attracting postgraduate millennials [mid-20s to mid-30s], with at least a bachelor’s degree. Urbanization amongst this demographic has emerged as a nationwide trend in the past decade, with largely positive implications “fueling economic growth and stimulating [urban] revitalization.” From 2000-2010, educated millennials in Center City, Philadelphia increased by 78%. Within this niche, the most significant growth spikes occurred “within a three mile radius of Center City,” known as “close-in urban neighborhoods.” This area housed concentrated growth from 28K [in 2000], to over 50K postgrad. millennials, by 2010.
