EDIT: actually one of the cited articles said the DC suburbs of Arlington and Alexandria were among the most popular locations for millenials - I don't know much about them - are they more urban dense of suburban sprawl?
I might agree that urban and suburban doesn't matter as long as that is how people feel. But if the blanket statement is made that Millennial youth are moving into the urban repopulating the cities it loses some of its impact if that urban area is in the Suburbs where the "rents" already were living and the kids grew up there. I don't think that model is what Oslo is looking for at all. And as prices increase will they be able to afford to move our and stay in a city Like Oslo or will they be driven out like they are with the costs in Copenhagen?
