Residential Development Summit

Tuesday 29 March 2022 | Online

City Shapers:

Rising to the Challenge

New Zealand’s premier residential development forum returned to a screen near you on Tuesday 29 March, with leaders from the large-scale residential development sector brought together for one day of virtual market analysis and education.

The Summit collated 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.

Residential Development Summit 2022 was a stellar day, providing 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.

Thank you for joining us – we look forward to welcoming you back in person in 2023 (fingers crossed!).
