As market sector specialisation and sophistication grows, so too does the development of specialised asset class sub-markets. We have significant experience in a wide range of specialist asset classes, including the following.
Build to rent:
The residential build to rent market is emerging in Australia as the residential sector responds to economic conditions and a growing appetite from investment markets. We are partnering with major participants on transaction structuring and deal execution.
Social and affordable housing: Social and affordable housing continues to be a major focus for governments, community housing providers and private sector developers, to promote secure and affordable housing for all Australians. We have been at the forefront of innovative structures for delivery of major social housing projects for over 10 years.
Aged care and retirement living: We have assisted clients undertake numerous significant transactions in the aged and retirement living sector, a sector which is becoming subject to increasing regulatory oversight and higher societal expectations. The Royal Commission into Aged Care has created an environment for change, which brings with it a level of regulatory risk that needs to be understood and mitigated in any future development or acquisition.
Agriculture and leisure:
Agriculture and hotels have been other areas of consistent growth in the Australian market and have been attracting greater levels of attention and investment from a wide source of capital, including from offshore. We are an active and committed adviser to many industry participants in these sectors.
Health and life sciences: There is increased recognition of the value of health and life sciences assets for both the community and from investors. Corrs is playing a key role in projects across the development and re-development of hospitals and life science hubs to deliver value.
Each specialist asset class requires equally specialist market and legal expertise, which we are proud to deliver our clients.
Core expertise extends beyond traditional assets to include education, student accommodation, healthcare, leisure, hotel, and retail property in addition to social housing and build-to-rent.
