Impact Investment Fund – Property Rental Ecosystem
C2 Capital is establishing an innovative and market leading Impact Investment Fund for the Australian property rental market. Our Vision for the fund is to create a Model 2020 Australian Rental Community based on the overarching principles of collaboration, sustainability, wellness and financial management, which will be replicated across Australia.
Sacrificing the long-term sustainability of our communities for short-term profits is not an option for the Impact Investment Fund. Our responsibility is to imagine the future today and to map the journey using the insights we have gathered from engaging with communities and determining their needs.
The integrated mixed-use, master planned communities will offer a full spectrum of property rental options for a number of real estate classes including; residential, healthcare, retail, commercial, hospitality, recreation, leisure and entertainment.
Holistic Living in the Public Realm
The Public Realm is the priority of the master planned community. It is central to the creation of an integrated, active and healthy sense of belonging where people are free to come and enjoy their time in the community. It is not an afterthought that is accommodated later.The Public Realm and the weaving of ‘Green Spaces’ will define the master-planned communities with a variety of extensively landscaped gardens, pocket parks and squares. The ‘Public Realm’ will be the connector of the community components where residents and visitors will ‘Live – Work – Play – Enjoy – Connect – Stay’.
Recreation and Leisure
The recreation, leisure and entertainment components will be carefully woven throughout the communities’ Public Realm and will be a focal point for the entire master plan providing a variety of offerings, including:
- Centralised Clubhouse
- Pocket Parks
Our residential rental communities are developed from insights gathered from qualitative and quantitative market research. We will include a broad spectrum of residential typologies catering to a variety of target audiences and rental price points including apartments, duplexes, single-family townhouses and serviced apartments.
The business model for our residential rental offering has been developed to provide a balanced portfolio of funding mechanisms throughout the lifecycle of the master-planned community across a phased and flexible leasing programme.
Healthcare is an equally powerful, core community element that further serves to define points of difference for Impact Investment Fund communities. A dedicated medical environment will re-define community healthcare and wellness. This will include the following:
- 24/7 Medical Centre
- Medical Suites
- Pathology / Radiology / Pharmacy
- Chronic Disease Management/ Post-Acute Care
- Physiotherapy / Convalescence / Rehabilitation
- Acupuncture / Homeopathy / Chiropractic
- Nutrition / Exercise / Wellness
The multi-disciplined medical centre will deliver high-quality care with smart medical services to both internal and external patients utilising state-of-the-art medical equipment and technology. From home to hospital and from hospital to home, rehabilitation and convalescent care will be possible, without any boundaries for all patients.
Mobility and accessibility are critical elements for the communities, not only for travel to and from the sites’ locations but also within the development itself. Internal connectivity will be thoughtfully planned with quality and footpath networks provided.
The key to this is to make transit the convenient alternative to the automobile, and one that is frequent, clean, safe and reliable, with options within walking distance for every type of occupier.
An integrated transit-oriented model will include scheduled access to railway stations, airports and major destinations by electric bus networks, to reduce automobile dependency and congestion. This will allow the development to “breathe,” and the freedom to promote walking and cycling as alternative modes of internal transportation.
The communities will be developed with major initiatives across a broad spectrum of energy solutions which target a 70% reduction on current emission standards through an integrated resource strategy for ‘Energy, Water and Waste’. The communities will act as a multi-service provider to manage energy, water, telecommunication systems, waste management, car parking, transport and common area maintenance.
The communities will promote a ‘Green’ culture and lead the change in behaviour and practices to support a more responsible approach to the environment, to tackle the rising costs of non-renewable resources by pursuing alternative forms of energy such as solar power and wind.
We will utilise the latest in building technology and performance standards for all building typologies which promote replication and scalability through innovative, cost-effective and time-saving, construction methods.
Looking to the Future
C2 Capital is currently negotiating a purchase of the first community for the Impact Investment Fund which is strategically situated in the Western Growth Corridor of Melbourne, Australia. This will be the first project to launch our future-focused communities and as such we are excited to undergo this revolutionary transformation to community planning.
