Technology continues to become more pervasive and intelligent as time goes by. Phones have turned into miniature computers and there are software apps for basically every need people can come up with. So why hasnt similar technology been incorporated into Australias residential market? Weve been so focused on the technological advancement of mobility that weve neglected the domain that means the most to us: our homes.
This trend is not an international standard; numerous homes across Asia have integrated technology to make living more streamlined and convenient. Automation technology is slowly making its mark on the local market, but one developer has revolutionised the way technology and home services can create a new lifestyle for high-density dwellings.
CEO of Longton Property Group Steven Yu began his career as a lawyer before launching one of the most innovative developers in the national sector. I didnt see the transition from law to property development coming myself, Steven explains. I think thats the beauty of life: you never know where it will take you to. A few years back, I was at law school and working as a lawyer. Now Im in property development, which I believe gives you more satisfaction. In law, you work on documentation, fight court cases, and draft hundreds of pages of legal documents, and you never really get any satisfaction out of it. Property development is something quite different: you build apartments and deliver a home to someone, and that is quite satisfying and the thing that has really brought me into this sector.
The satisfaction of providing homes for people isnt the only motivator behind Stevens career choice. Steven enjoys high quality when it comes to décor and design, which has been a major element of Longtons developments. I was reading an article on the plane that said, The competitiveness of the product depends on how unique the product is because you have to compete with similar competitors, so I started thinking about how we could make our developments more unique.
