Residential Development Summit

We went virtual!

If the marker for perfect vision is 2020, one thing’s become certain in this year of all years: the future’s never been blurrier.

Rather than continue to postpone this year's Residential Development Summit, we chose to take the event online and are proud to deliver Property Council’s first ever Virtual Summit.

The premier forum for the New Zealand residential development market returned on Thursday 27 August 2020 in virtual format, with leaders from throughout the large-scale residential development sector brought together for one day of market analysis and virtual networking.

This year we are broke the mould, turned our focus to shaping cities where communities thrive with our new theme, City Shapers 2020: Creating Communities

The Summit brought together detailed market updates and a look at what the political landscape and legislative environment means for the market. We explored innovative case studies in urban design, while sharing insights into the future of cities and shining a light on the blurring of lines between traditional development and emerging ‘alternative’ residential sectors such as Build to Rent.

The Residential Development Summit | City Shapers 2020 provided a packed agenda that allowed property developers, investors, owners and associated property professionals to be fully up to speed on all the key issues in the residential development market.
