I have lived within a stone's throw of Stanford for many years and in no way are there any urban qualities to the campus. It does sprawl but it does so in a rural way.

As for silicon valley there is nothing urban about that either. It's all clusters of modest buildings, suburbs and strip malls. The closest to urban it gets is downtown San Jose which is not urban in the way other cities are.

Can't find it now but someone made a comment about San Francisco's mission district being an example of millennial preferences. To clear up any confusion, San Francisco is a dump. The filth and stink of homeless is unlike anywhere else except maybe Bombay. It clogs up everything, including the financial district which doesn't even have much housing. There are gentrified pockets around the city but not complete neighborhoods of comfort. Big money folks of whatever age who want to live in the city can rent or buy a skinny victorian and make it an oasis/bubble but it is not a large swath neighborhood of millennials taking over.

San Francisco millennials choose to live in San Francisco but this is nothing new. Young workerbees have been flocking there for decades and those who seek it will find some charm in the foggy stench.

The only thing millenials are known for in San Francisco is driving up the price of avocado on toasted sourdough to over $10.
