As the housing affordability topic rises in our minds in unison with rental and purchase prices, Australian state and local governments have started investigating the possibility of helping propagate a build-to-rent housing sector. Described as ‘radical’ by Australian press, but an initiative common in the USA and the UK, build-to-rent communities involve development designed with the intent of long-term—sometimes indefinite—leases. Providing long-term security for residents, and touted as a topical treatment for the housing affordability crisis, building to rent is the topic of this High Density Happiness talk brought to you by Open Journal.

In this panel discussion, join a panel of experts—to be announced soon—to discuss the impact of the build-to-rent model across different spheres: from design implications and creating strong communities to the cultural acceptance of long-term renters and how to form the policy towards security of tenure.
