Australian Cities: A Runway for Out Performance

3rd June 2021

White paper from Mirvac Research, ‘Australian Cities: a runaway for outperformance’, analyses data sets to explore whether cities are being ‘un-made’.

Real estate investors globally have benefited from the mega-trend of urbanisation over the past two decades. Since the onset of the pandemic, shifts in population movements, consumption and working arrangements have raised the question - is this the tipping point in urbanisation?

Australian Cities: a runway for outperformance is a white paper from Mirvac Research which analyses a wide range of data sets to explore whether cities are being ‘un-made’.

The paper finds that, while drivers for liveability and urbanisation are more multifarious than are often understood, the strong gravitational forces of Australia’s cities remain intact and underpin a long future runway of outperformance.

With this paper, we are pleased to be able to contribute to the important discussion around the future of our cities, as companies and investors grapple with identifying structural shifts shifts amongst cyclical haze.
