The apartments, in 21 communities, are in metropolitan areas with expected economic and population growth over the next five years, according to brokerage CBRE Group Inc. Florida and Texas will probably attract new residents because they have a higher quality of life and lower cost of living compared with other U.S. markets, Starwood said.
