Photo: Supplied REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said more than two-thirds of the population lived in capital cities, which meant density was increasingly an issue that town planners need to manage.“The pressure is on for us all to find ways to house the population in ways that don’t add strain to the environment or to the economy,” Ms Mercorella said.“Finding creative solutions to people’s living issues – whether people want to live in a more eco-friendly way, putting less strain on the environment, or in a more financially efficient way, taking up less space and having less stuff – is the new frontline of housing issues.“The REIQ welcomes these initiatives. These are going to be particularly beneficial in areas where rental markets are tight and population growth is continuing steadily. Any addition to the rental supply will ease the tight conditions currently happening in parts of Queensland.”Founder and CEO of iModular, Brad Ashley, said cabins were made using advanced robotics and sustainable materials for rapid site assembly.Single-bedroom cabins at the Eight Mile Plains location are $285 per week and single-bedroom cabins at the Chambers Flat location are $260 per week.
