The demand for value-led, people-oriented and sustainable developments is arguably the most significant shift across architecture, property and design right now.

Join Communications Collective for a special event on Thursday 19th April to explore this quiet revolution.

A panel of industry leaders will discuss the rise of ethical property development and how it should be defined, the business of developing these types of properties and what the future holds for Australia's multi-residential apartment market.

Tickets for the event can be purchased here: [insert Eventbrite link]
