Land lease communities: the fastest growing solution for Australian downsizers

5/1/2024
Could land lease communities be one of the solutions for Australia’s housing affordability crisis? They’ve become an increasingly sought after option for retirees. Some 130,000 people are living in these estates and the $12 billion sector having been described as the fastest growing solution for downsizers in Australia. But what exactly is a land lease community, what are the pros and cons of buying into them, how much growth is likely in this sector and why is it rising on the radar of local and offshore institutions and developers? We explore this with Kate Melrose from the Ingenia Communities Group alongside CBRE’s Liam Greentree and Kat Hale in our latest Talking Property podcast. We also discuss CBRE’s inaugural residential valuers survey, which shines a light on the ever-pressing need for more affordable housing options in Australia.

Talking Property: The House View Q2

4/17/2024
While there’s broad agreement on some of the longer-term tailwinds for the Australian real estate market, conviction is still lacking when it comes to the strength of future rent growth, exit values and in some cases the regulatory environment. That’s one of the areas up for discussion in our quarterly Talking Property: The House View podcast, which explores the opportunities and challenges ahead for the retail, office, industrial and living sectors. Tune in to hear CBRE’s Pacific Advisory Services CEO Phil Rowland Pacific Head of Research Sameer Chopra give their take on fresh interest in the retail investment market, the ongoing gap between office fundamentals and sentiment, the unprecedented demand conditions and supply side challenges in the residential market and whether occupier demand is beginning to moderate in the industrial sector.

By 2100, some 10 billion people will live in around 10,000 cities across the globe. Just in Australia, our population is tipped to rise by 15 million people over the next 36 years.

These issues were centre stage at the Property Council of Australia’s Future Cities Summit, which was headlined by one of the world’s leading urbanists, Professor Greg Clark.

Is The Only Way Up?

2/21/2024
Could building on top of older apartment blocks be one of the solutions to Australia’s housing crisis? Airspace above existing strata buildings is a $150 billion opportunity in Sydney alone according to one leading advocate. Equally, is going up the only solution for the owners of these blocks? Given tight rental market conditions across the country, there’s also huge demand from investors wanting to purchase these blocks outright. It’s a topic explored in this latest episode of Talking Property featuring Warren Livesey, Head of the Association of Rooftop & Airspace Development, and CBRE Metropolitan Investments Director Toby Silk. They also delve into the opportunities for airspace development, not just above strata apartment blocks but also around hospitals, transportation hubs, fire and police stations to create key worker housing.

Australia’s student accommodation sector has been in the spotlight as international students return to our shores and investors circle what’s becoming one of the country’s most sought-after alternative asset classes.

The ‘metro-fication’ of Sydney

10/18/2023
Major infrastructure can have an outsized impact on our cities. And nowhere is that becoming more apparent than in Sydney where the new Metro rail network is transforming suburbs, driving up property prices and creating more vibrant communities. In this latest Talking Property episode, we speak to CBRE’s Pacific Head of Research Sameer Chopra and REA Group Economist Anne Flaherty to discover just how significant the Metro’s impact will be and the opportunities it will create for investors and developers. In their wide-ranging discussion, Sameer and Anne assess the scale of the price gains that buyers can expect from living near the Metro and why shorter commutes are such a drawcard, particularly for Gen Y and Gen Z. And it’s not just a Sydney-centric trend, with rail projects set to benefit many other major Australian cities.

9/27/2023
Adaptive re-use. It’s a hot topic right now as developers and investors assess how to best repurpose office buildings that are no longer fit for use.

The ESG future for Australia’s industrial & logistics sector

8/30/2023
Is it possible to create an industrial workplace that workers want to be in? Or even an industrial workplace which sets a bold new standard in sustainability? While office, residential and retail spaces were the first property types to experience the real benefits of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and placemaking initiatives, the industrial & logistics space is now a major investment grade asset class which is also beginning to inherit the same sustainability criteria. It’s a strong indication that industrial property has changed and is no longer just about employees arriving to work in a shed and then clocking off. In our latest ESG in Conversation series, CBRE’s Pacific Head of ESG, Su-Fern Tan, talks exclusively to Andrew Thai, National Sustainability Manager for Frasers Property Industrial, and Tamara Williams, Head of ESG for Altis. In this insightful talk, the trio explore the real-time sustainability strategies being used by today’s leading developers to help future proof their portfolios while showcasing the unique ROI opportunities that innovation in this space can bring. With analysis based around The YARDS project, the first industrial estate to ever achieve a Green Star Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, the experts will specifically look at: If you have any questions from this episode or property topics that you’d like CBRE to answer in future episodes, please email us at: talkingproperty@cbre.com.
