Renegade Economists Show 552
This week Emily interviews Ben Keck and Abbie Freestone from Assemble about their latest project in Kensington. We discuss Assemble’s deliberative development model: a boutique take on build-to-rent. For locked-outs struggling to save a deposit, the Assemble Model may offer ‘a patient pathway.’ Strong environmental credentials and a codesign ethos make this build-to-rent-to-buy model a welcome alternative to Melbourne’s off-the-plan apartment offerings. But is it economically sustainable?
