Webinar Summary

The focus of the webinar is on what’s Next of Alternative Residential Market: Urban Living and Sharing Economy gets a makeover. How resilient are student housing, co-living and senior living during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The speakers will share their views on the impact of social distancing on modern urban living concepts and amenities offering. The panellists will discuss whether managed communities can better address matters of hygiene and health, wellbeing, comfort and safety, loneliness and social distancing. Or are shared spaces associated with increasing risk of virus propagation and more public and regulatory intervention is anticipated? Are we going to see more demand for affordable living arrangements, such as co-living, during and after the economic turmoil caused by the coronavirus? Whether the anticipated increase of working from home, social distancing, health & safety will lead to changes in the design practices of co-living spaces? Integration of technological solutions in the design and operational practices of these housing models. Resiliency of these sectors from an investment perspective will be addressed during the webinar. A Q&A session will follow and panellists will answer audience questions.
