MIN11: Build to rent

Is Australia ready for Built to Rent (BTR)—a dedicated supply of rent only apartment blocks? With a focus on experiences from overseas (where over £10 billion of institutional capital is in play in the UK), this session and panel discussion explores why BTR is a 2017 issue, what will it make it happen, and what the potential affordability and environmental performance benefits could be.
