“We’re thrilled to take out the top ranking for 2017,” he says. “We’ve really invested in the Australian and Asian elderly living markets over the past 20 years, and are excited to keep growing our already strong portfolio.”

“The increasing need for seniors living and aged care is pushing us to continue learning and improving our approach to elderly living design,” Mr Straw concludes.
