Well renowned for his sharp interviews with top tier key players in the property industry, Ready Media Group’s Rob Langton now brings to the table another dimension – Episode one is now available under the 'Series 1' tab via ‘The Roundtable’.
Together with Jones Lang La Salle’s Executive Director and Head of Capital Markets, Josh Rutman, the dynamic duo are bringing to the table more than just a discussion. Focusing on key topics in the industry as well as those left of field, every month insightful analysis will be presented alongside high-profile guests who will be heard, provoked and questioned.
“This exclusive new series brings together industry specialists for the first-time, providing an opportunity for viewers to hear exclusively from those deeply embedded within sub-sectors of the property market and assisting them with their investment and capital decisions.” – Rob Langton, Ready Media Group
Episode one focuses on the evolution of ‘Build to Rent’ developments, taking a deep dive into the sector to uncover the drivers and dispel the myths featuring special guests Chris Key of Greystar and Julian Anderson of Bates Smart.
Greystar pioneered their model in the US, Europe and Latin America, bringing with them considerable enterprise experience before entering the Australian market with a multi-billion dollar pipeline of local projects.
So, what’s led to their success?
“There were a series of themes that repeated across geographies…there was this underlying trend which was going to expand beyond the limited amount of countries it was already present.” – Chris Key, Greystar
Bates Smart is a world class multi-disciplinary design firm delivering architecture, interior design, urban design and strategic services across Australia - in this episode Julian Anderson speaks of his firm’s projects with Grocon, Oxford Properties and Mirvac, delving into the sweet spot in design, how and if the BTR asset class will transcend time, the nuances involved and the future of this high demand sector.
“It really started on the back of the slow-down in the large-scale, build-to-sell environment…we were approached by Grocon now the Home business…we were very fortunate to be engaged by them and that led to a design process on that project and then that translated into multiple other build-to-rent projects and we’ve really developed the brief…off the back of what we’ve learnt.” – Julian Anderson, Bates Smart.
‘The Roundtable’ discussion goes beyond those experts that are in full view – it encourages interaction & engagement from viewers to share & discuss their own opinions and ideas.
