Apartment living offers open plan refined living for a diversity of people from first home buyers to retiring couples downsizing from their family home. It builds a sense of community as neighbours live with one another in a sustainable environment.
Most apartment buildings are built around activity centres that offer shopping, restaurants, transport and public facilities to its occupants. The reliance on automotive transport is diminished. Infrastructure costs have risen and therefore it makes perfect sense to have higher density around areas where there is access to all facilities.
Property values have skyrocketed over the years and every parcel of land is valuable, therefore to make use of every section of land and air above makes sense to increase investment opportunities for the land owner.
