AHURI RESEARCH IN PROGRESS

Improving outcomes for apartment residents and neighbourhoods

Hazel Easthope, University of New South Wales

This project will examine the design, delivery and management of apartments and higher-density neighbourhoods, and identify opportunities for shifts in policy and practice to support improvements to the wellbeing, community and affordability outcomes of lower-income apartment residents. Using census data, land title data bases, document analysis, focus groups and stakeholder workshops this research will look at apartments which are higher than four stories in neighbourhoods in metropolitan Sydney and Melbourne.
