How do Urban Living markets match up within residential, commercial and other property asset classes? How have these asset classes grown in the last three years? Which Urban Living asset classes will 'weather the storm' best and where will they be in another three years time? ?

This session will place a 'laser-like' focus on the asset classes under discussion through the event across the three stages: Stay, Live and Work - hotels, hostels, serviced apartments, aparthotels, coworking, coliving, senior living, student housing, PRS and mixed-use development.
