Intention of the consultancy is to create high-quality, affordable housing within the city centre. It does so through the tools of both architecture and finance.
By decoupling ownership and occupancy, it was intended to allow access to city living at reduced ownership levels. 
Looked at 3 examples across London.

Using the outer city properties to “subsidise” inner city living is not sustainable and counter-productive. The network and differing ownership levels allows the inner city accessibility, but creates outer city redundancy. There is no incentive to move to a less ideal location in exchange for higher % ownership.
^Ownership cannot be relevant + irrelevant at the same time.
1 tower @ 1 location.
not focusing n ownership, but on usage (to remove from the real estate market, focusing on use value and not exchange value)
