From the country that gave you the Volkswagen (Volk – people, Wagen – car), the people’s car, now comes the latest idea for the people.
Do it yourself property development.
In Kreuzberg, a trendy suburb in Berlin, a community has bandied together to develop a large apartment complex that is designed to precisely meet their needs.
The homeowners collaborated with the developer and consultants and all decisions from planning, to building standards, to the location of communal rooms and the layout of the balconies were made jointly. That is, all decisions were made according to the desires of the homeowners as a whole.
An innovator in the car industry has now become an innovator in the property development industry. How long will it take until a smart developer grabs this idea and runs with it in Australia?
