The rise of ethical, community-focused property development

The rise of ethical, community-focused property development

Discussing how the demand for values-led, people-oriented and sustainable developments is arguably the most significant shift across architecture, property and design right now,  it was great to recently be invited by Communications Collective to be part of a panel discussion exploring this quiet revolution.

The panel discussed the rise of ethical property development and how it should be defined, the business of developing these types of properties and what the future holds for Australia’s multi-residential housing market.

The panel on the night included:

  • David Martin, CEO, Small Giants Developments
  • Sophie Whittakers, Development Manager, Lucent Capital
  • Kath Sundermann, Associate Director, MGS Architects
  • Andrew Hoyne, Principal, Hoyne Design
  • Genevieve Branagan, Founder, Communications Collective

Many of the topics discussed on the night were covered in Genevieve’s “Community-focused property development is the sector’s most significant trend of the last five years” piece in The Fifth Estate, and picked up by Jenny Brown from Domain “It had to change: The new breed of property developers”
