Developers Respond to the Changing Needs of Residents
Developers of Australia's larger master-planned developments are including a variety of housing types and lot sizes to meet changing lifecycle stages, from large families to empty-nesters. Lifecycle planning is described as good for the developer, who can then market to changing needs of residents who might otherwise move suburb, as well as good for the community that contains more of a social mix of residents across ages and stages. A researcher also comments on the downsides of these developments and the limited economic social zone that do actually live there.
