Strata owner and committee member Kareem Tawansi long ago made the choice to live in strata rather than a Sydney terrace house. In this chat, Kareem shares how the communities he is now part of are reaching new heights, including the recent approval of a $2.7m upgrade project.

  1. Very interesting discussion on the politics of new vs old owners. On the aesthetic upgrades to a building, whether this actually makes it look better is quite subjective. Trying to modernise an older 1960s-1980s building can end up stripping its character and ruining the facade if not done in harmony with its era e.g., painting everything grey/white, replacing original balustrades with frameless glass panels, rendering over brickwork etc. Not only that, these upgrades make it even more expensive to maintain for cleaning and repairs, further adding to the strata costs.
