The form of property ownership known as strata title in Australia, and as condominiums in the USA, has flourished in many countries for half a century. In Australia, strata title developments—especially large-scale, higher-density, mixed-use inner-city developments—are thought to be an important approach contributing to the future efficiency and sustainability of metropolitan areas.

Informed by a critical evaluation of the Australian situation, we present a research agenda for generating explanatory, normative and procedural knowledge on strata title for planning.
