As we commence 2016 it’s particularly exciting to see so many of our clients’ projects nearing completion, and as the local residential market cycle matures, it will be interesting to see how well the development market responds to the more challenging conditions.
At Ellivo, we are experiencing a growing interest in boutique-scale residential developments, with larger 3-bedroom apartments often more popular than studios or single bedrooms. Townhouse sites in the inner and semi-urban zone are also increasingly desirable, with these town-homes providing compelling alternatives to detached residences or units.
For this first article for the year, we overview a selection of our projects as they near significant milestones.
