Improving outcomes for apartment residents and neighbourhoods

This project examined the design, delivery and management of apartments and higher-density neighbourhoods and identified opportunities for shifts in policy and practice to support improvements to the wellbeing, community and affordability outcomes of lower-income apartment residents. It provides new information about the characteristics of lower income apartment residents and the places where they live. It discusses how well apartment developments meet the needs of this group and considers how future developments can best provide for the wellbeing, community and affordability needs of lower income residents at both the building and neighbourhood scale.
