Gender neutral restroom facilities are becoming more and more common. A survey was sent out recently to our membership to see the current status of gender neutral restrooms available as well as what the future trends might be.


Here are the results:

  • 38.58% of existing buildings currently provide gender neutral restrooms
  • Of those that don't currently provide gender neutral restrooms, 23.08% are planning to add them to existing properties in the next five years
  • The respondents who are developing or planning to develop new projects in the next five years are split down the middle as far as providing gender neutral restrooms and not providing gender neutral restrooms
  • Based on the survey results, gender neutral restroom facilities may be more prevalent in new construction 


Some general thoughts from the respondents:

  • Providing gender neutral restrooms eliminates one area of potential uncertainty and discomfort for our tenants, employees, and guests
  • We have "family" restrooms that we consider gender neutral
  • Gender neutral restrooms are the best choice for single use restrooms. We don't currently have any single user restrooms.
  • I have sympathy for the challenges transgender face however, I would rather avoid making our tenants uncomfortable by identifying restrooms as gender neutral.


There were 19 respondents and you can view the full results here. What are your thoughts about Gender Neutral Restroom Facilities? Feel free to post your comments below.
