SPONSOR: Brendan Rogers, Director -Urbis
Christina’s career began by accident when she realised her curiosity about cities, people and the environment could be turned into a job. She has transformed this into expertise in all areas of statutory and strategic planning and is now approaching 20 years in private and government practice. Christina is a Director at Urbis in Melbourne where she advises public and private sector clients on land use and development strategies and navigating the planning system. Multi residential, retail, mixed use, major project management and tricky planning questions are her forte. Christina is also a part owner of a number of bars which contributed to Melbourne's City renaissance. This gives her an insider’s view in the area of liquor licensing. In her spare time she dreams of building an architect designed house but hasn't worked up the courage yet.
