German grammar

For my homework assignment, the direction is to answer questions using the Perfekt. Keeping that in mind, which sentence sounds better? Or is either okay?

Frage - Wie war die ökonomische Situation im Heitmatland Ihres Partners?
Antwort 1 - Die Ökonomie ist grösser geworden bis er etwa sechzehn Jahre alt war.
Antwort 2 - Die Ökonomie ist grösser geworden bis er etwa sechzehn Jahre alt gewesen ist.

I'm leaning towards the first even though it's not in Perfekt, but I'm not sure as it's been a few years since I last took a German class.

Thanks in advance for any help!
