According to The Australian Financial Review, from redesigning the layouts to deciding where to build next, property developers are being forced to rethink their projects to meet the emerging needs and preferences of buyers as a result of the lockdown.
In a survey of its clients, Mirvac found that more than a third (37 per cent) would reconsider where they lived if they could work from home.
Nearly a quarter (24 per cent) said they would relocate further away while one in seven (13 per cent) said they would move closer to their workplace.
"Based on our customers' recent experience of working from home, we are currently thinking carefully about where we choose to develop future communities based on emerging lifestyle preferences," said Mirvac head of residential development Stuart Penklis.
"People said they don't want to travel more than five kilometres to access conveniences and they would consider moving or relocating to relaxed areas such as near the beach or countryside."
