Two more episodes of the property puzzle have been released, featuring insights from two experts at the forefront of an emerging trend.

This season, the Trends Piece examines the broad changes that are reshaping Australia’s property industry. In each episode, industry leaders provide their analysis on a trend that is impacting their industry and how the property sector should respond.

Geoff Grady, the former CEO of Aveo Group provides expert insight into how Australia needs to respond to a rapidly ageing population.

The unprecedented level of demand across the seniors’ living sector is expected to bring exciting new opportunities for innovation and development. Australia’s growing older population will look for more diverse and varied housing options to reflect their needs.

In the latest episode, leading urbanist and place maker Kate Meyrick (former CEO of the Hornery Institute) discusses the importance of creating meaningful areas that people can connect with.

Kate believes that every area can be leveraged to add value and that there is an opportunity for policymakers to incorporate this approach into statutory frameworks.

The series is available on the Property Council’s website and available to download from iTunes.
