Human City
Cities' Reimagined

How can real estate professionals secure financial returns with  shifting tenant demands and with cities experiencing sky high pricing, causing bottled up product development? Can the application of traditional social sciences to big data help identify shared needs across different demographics, and find an answer to what social and technological trends will influence planning and development and where to go from here? 

  • Designing a Better Future - Uses of big data to understand human behaviour and demographic changes to find financial returns in the late cycle

  • Measuring Financial Value of Social Impact

  • Shared Needs Across Different Demographics - Do generational spaces have to be more experimental to cater to actual demand?

  • Impact Investment in Asset Management - Maximising space to maximise social components?

‘Red Resi’ - Welcomed intervention for social progress or choking investment appetite?

Looking at the broken housing market regulation system, and voices getting louder crying for more affordability price-points, one might wonder if there is a way to fix the mess?

  • UK Gov Regs, Planning & LA’s - Still broke, who’s fixing it?

  • UK, Europe US - What’s working, what’s worth scrapping?

  • Institutional Investment - BTR consolidation wave or social impact funds ripping the market?
