How They Work
Our building groups bring people together to co-develop the homes and resilient communities they want at cost. We give people more control over the location, design and quality of their future homes.
A platform for Impact
Property Collectives and our network provide citizens and community groups with a proven platform and operating system to create the communities they want.
We deliver better homes more affordably by enabling like-minded people to collaborate and boost their buying power. Our participatory and rigorous development process puts people in control over the location, design and quality of their future homes.
As Development Managers we facilitate the end to end process, enabling members to internalise developer profits and avoid having to pay sales, marketing & transaction costs that are passed onto buyers of Off The Plan developments. These savings are typically around 15% of the cost of a new home.
Australia’s leading deliberative development model
Since 2010 we have created 10 collectives building 80 homes across Melbourne in suburbs like Northcote, Thornbury, West Melbourne, North Melbourne, Brunswick, Brunswick West, St Kilda & Eltham.
In 2018 we were recognised for our contribution to housing market innovation as recipients of The Urban Developer Award for Excellence in Commercial Innovation.
Our team has over 15 years experience creating and managing building groups worth approximately $96m.
We facilitate the end to end development process, from bringing together building group members and creating Collectives, through to site acquisition, finance and project management.
