I'd love to see something like this gain traction, if it did we might get a more demand driven apartment market with a much wider range of apartments to choose from than we would ever get from the current developer driven market.

Quote from the article:


London describes Citiniche as a "cracker of an idea" – a kind of "housing dating bureau" that "allows people to get together and use their own resources in such a way that there is no single entity that is taking the risk".

Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
