The sale is the largest transaction of consecutive, adjacent shops for High Street Armadale noted to date. Mr Ryan commented, “In the short to medium term, the 13 Armadale shops which collectively sold on a 2.7% yield, could, based on comparable rents in the strip, confidently realise a rental uplift. In the long term, there is also huge potential to capitalise on the buildings themselves and their prime location.” The landholding is strata-titled into 13 units spanning a land area of 2415 sqm and a frontage of 80 meters, with 2700 sqm of lettable area. There are 63 rooftop parking spaces, 43 of which are allocated to tenants. At present, the strip is tenanted by quality long term tenants such as Sofas Direct, Aya Teppanyaki, Steinway Piano Gallery and High Dental. According to the ABS, the overall Australian retail turnover rose 2.8% in August this year compared to 2016. This illustrates that retail and hospitality spaces are still a prominent avenue through which consumers buy, giving investors even more confidence about investing in this sector. Mr. Gregson commented, “Roughly $25 million of retail assets has been transacted in this deal alone and it has been a win-win for everyone - the vendors have achieved the best price in the market from their investments and GLG have acquired a premium grade landholding which has incredible potential for further capital development and gain. Despite the perceived uncertainty for the traditional retail landscape, there is clearly still an unprecedented demand and funds available for well-located retail investments.” About Allard Shelton Pty.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore officially launches construction of City West Housing’s latest affordable housing development 2017-12-06T21:08:53Z lord-mayor-clover-moore-officially-launches-construction-of-city-west-housings-latest-affordable-housing-development Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore will officially launch the start of construction of City West Housing’s latest affordable housing development on Thursday 7th December 2017, with an official sod turning ceremony. This development is part of the Cowper Street Glebe redevelopment precinct. The apartment complex, located on the corner of Wentworth and Bay Street in Glebe, is the latest exciting development in City West Housing’s offering of affordable housing in the Sydney LGA. The new development will offer 99 affordable housing units in a mix of one, two and three-bedroom configurations, catering for all the primary needs of residents in Sydney. The project is due for completion in mid-2019. The development will feature basement car park facilities and bike storage, ground floor commercial premises and two large communal areas including a lush communal roof terrace. The roof terrace has been designed as an open environment for communal gathering, with the views from the terrace reinforcing the connection to Wentworth Park and the Sydney city skyline. The development would not be possible without the support of the NSW Government who, as part of this collaboration, vested the land to City West Housing. The City of Sydney Council has also demonstrated its commitment to the project through ongoing support of City West Housing’s development activity. Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore comments: “The cost of housing is at crisis point across metropolitan Sydney and especially in inner Sydney. We are committed to tackling this crisis with every mechanism available to us, particularly in partnership with housing providers like City West Housing as well as state and federal governments”. “This development in the Cowper Street precinct, Glebe, will provide long term affordable rental housing to city workers who would otherwise be unable to live close to their place of work. Identified in our long-term strategy Sustainable Sydney 2030, the Cowper Street development represents a good case study of a cooperative approach between the City, State Government and community housing providers like City West Housing, that will deliver direct social benefits, increase the supply of market housing and provide a diversity of housing options. Together, we need to look at new models of large-scale affordable rental housing that is delivered through partnerships among private developers, institutional investors, the not-for-profit sector and governments”. “I look forward to unveiling this development in 2019”. CEO of City West Housing, Leonie King welcomed the commencement of this project, commenting: “The team at City West Housing is extremely pleased to launch construction for our latest affordable housing development within the Sydney LGA”. “With our latest development, we will be further expanding our affordable housing footprint whilst maintaining our reputation for high quality, low-cost affordable rental housing for city workers on low to moderate incomes”. Kane Construction is leading the development of the complex, with work beginning after the official sod turning. Cameron Powell, General Manager of Kane comments: “Kane is excited to be involved in another Affordable Housing project that fits seamlessly into the surrounding Glebe community. We fully support City West in their mission to provide quality projects that have excellent amenity for their tenants. This project ticks those boxes”. --- ends --- For more information, high res images of the sod turning or to coordinate an interview with Leonie King, CEO of City West Housing, please contact: Lillian Morrison on Lillian@polkadotcomms.com.au or (02) 9281 4190 About City West Housing: City West Housing is one of Australia’s leading affordable rental housing providers.

With their help, we have had 935 young participants through our Welfare & Education Program within the Victorian South East region”. The event was a success with over 100 people in attendance which reinstated the strong connection between Lowe Design & Build and the community, in particular, their two flagship charities OTLR and Camp Awakenings. Camp Awakenings provides Year 9 participants with the opportunity to develop and harness methods and skills to counter the challenges faced by today's youth.

Since 2000, Brian has been co-director of the business with his son Matt. This outstanding father son duo has delivered exceptional homes and townhouse projects within the bayside corridor whilst still ensuring the company culture of community support and involvement was always upheld. Matt Lowe commented, “We have been part of the Bayside community for over 30 years, not only through our personal involvement but also through the work we do. We service our bayside clientele by delivering an exceptional design and build package and enjoy receiving their positive testimonials.

Cinzia Cozzolino, Founder of Smoothie Bombs and nutritionist states: “I've always loved vanilla in food and I loved vanilla milk shakes growing up! When I was coming up with the flavour, I knew I wanted to use hemp, which is nutty and creamy and so vanilla just seemed to be a great fit. It also contains Butterfly Pea powder which is full of antioxidants.” “Hemp is my favourite source of plant-based protein. Hemp comes from a strain of the cannabis plant (i.e Sativa L) but it is different to marijuana. Like the difference between two different breeds of dogs. It is such a good source of vital nutrients for growing bodies which is why Hemp is a good option for kids especially fussy eaters. It can be added to their favourite meals without much effort and it taste great in smoothies making it easier to consume. I recommend getting certified organic hemp seeds for kids as they will also be without pesticides. “ Cinzia is a nutritionist and expert on edible hemp. Do you know? Hemp has a great source of all three essential fatty acids, Omega 3, 6 and 9! Hemp has 11g of protein in 3 Tablespoons making it a great plant protein. Organic Hemp can be eaten by kids.

Strong demand and a steady increase in sale prices in Melbourne’s inner city western hotspots Seddon and Williamstown, have beena catalyst for the listing of yet another two major commercial landholdings by Allard Shelton: 103-105 Victoria Street and rear neighbouring property 2 Bourke street, Seddon and; 74 & 76 Douglas Parade, Williamstown Commercial property agents Allard Shelton have been appointed for the sale of both landholdings with Directors Michael Ryan and James Gregson leading the team’s campaign, with Alexkabon real estate a conjunctional agent on the Seddon sale. The Seddon parcel comprises 3 retail shops; Mozzarella Bar, Souvlaki Bar and Copperpot and 1 humble residential home. Spanning a complete area of 735 sqm and being sold by one owner, the anticipated sale price of 5 million plus is reflective of this high demand which has in part, been driven by the suburb’s population increase of almost 5% over the last 5 years. The properties will be sold tenanted, via public auction on Thursday 14th December at 1pm onsite. “The Victoria street investment has 4 tenants including long secure leases to renowned hospitality tenants Copper Pot, Mozzarella Bar and Meat the Greek Souvlaki bar with a current combined income of $220,000. This is a very stable investment with the potential for huge capital growth, especially with the projected increase in population to the area expected to rise on average by 20% over the net 10 years according to the City of Maribyrnong.” stated Mr. Gregson. Seddon, with its leafy and residential streetscapes, is situated only 4km west of Melbourne and has experienced on average, a jump in property value of around 20% over the last year alone, as recorded by the CoreLogic property database. This listing follows the sale of 70 Charles Street, Seddon which is located on the corner of Victoria and Charles Streets.

We have sold approximately $50 million dollars of retail assets in Williamstown in the past 9 months. Currently returning a combined income of $64,000 + GST, there is enormous rental upside potential and good prospective capital growth.

The offering comprises of two separate retail shops of 170 sqm each in one of Williamstown’s most popular retail shopping strips. About Allard Shelton Pty. Ltd. Allard Shelton Pty.

Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM FAICD, said the Braemar EnviroMagic offers impressive evaporative cooling capacity perfect for large spaces, new property developments and architectural projects where looks and street appeal are important. “This sleek new Braemar EnviroMagic is a market-leading commercial air-conditioning solution that delivers cooled air in a highly energy-efficient way, and responds to the needs of a growing number of business owners who want an unobtrusive roof profile,” Mr Seeley said. “The Braemar EnviroMagic ideally suits projects where roof profile aesthetics or intricate architectural design are important, and is a perfect choice for projects where building zone regulations require roof mounted equipment and services to be located behind parapet walls,” he said. “Constructed with a super-tough lightweight UV-proof polymer cabinet instead of aluminium or stainless steel, the Braemar EnviroMagic is lightweight and durable, which means it can be easily installed on roof spaces that cannot support the weight of a typical commercial or industrial cooler.” Other key features of the new Braemar EnviroMagic include: ·         Highly cost-efficient air conditioning per cubic meter – which has been achieved thanks to clever features such as the inverter axial fan technology and denser cooling pads. Braemar EnviroMagic ENV1000’s unique array of three 3-phase inverter drive motors, are fully enclosed to ensure the utmost safety and longevity. They enable efficient variable speed control, minimising power usage and further increasing efficiency. Braemar EnviroMagic ENV600 features the InvertairTM inverter motor which is highly efficient throughout the operating range, using far less energy than a standard fan and motor. ENV600 is available as a three phase or single phase model. ·         Impressive cooling capacity - Braemar EnviroMagic effortlessly delivers large volumes of cooled air in large spaces, even those with constant traffic flows.   ·         Low CO2 emissions - Ultra-low energy use is achieved thanks to the 'Invertair’ inverter technology, which provides a new level of carbon emission reduction compared to other cooling types. The Braemar EnviroMagic also comes standard with a water management system, allowing for savings on water bills too.   ·         Simple installation and easy operation – Not only is the Braemar EnviroMagic smaller and lighter than other commercial evaporative systems, it is also much quicker and cheaper to install – which means customers can avoid costly installation of multiple smaller coolers, with fewer roof penetrations. Adding to the ease of installation is the fact that components such as pads and fans can also easily be removed.   Braemar EnviroMagic is configured to work with an intuitive touch screen MagIQtouch Controller, which lets users program and control multiple coolers with ease from single stations. Braemar EnviroMagic is also Building Management System compatible, for integration with existing or future systems.

Melbourne, 6 November 2017 - 63-69 City road Southbank hits the market for the second time in just over 2 years after a perceived restrictive planning scheme amendment caused the sale to fall through in 2015. Today, with an approved hotel permit in place, the site is expected to sell for around $15 million and top the mark in price with a global marketing campaign led by Allard Shelton Directors, Michael Ryan, James Gregson, Joseph Walton and Agent executive Martin Huang. The landholding is one of the last development sites available on City road, Southbank and is positioned within a precinct that includes the renowned Eureka Tower, Prima Pearl and Australia 108 site. It was on the market in July 2015 and under a due diligence contract with a foreign Chinese investor. Due to a change in the Melbourne Planning Scheme at the time, it was perceived that amendment C270 would restrict use of the property and as a result, it led the investor to renegotiate on the sale. The property was then taken off the market. Vendors Julie Moss, owner of Melbourne’s Photography Studies College, and Webjet non-executive Director, Steven Scheuer, have since gained an approved demolition and construction permit for a 30 storey, 100m tall mixed use hotel development, highlighting that the amendments weren’t as detrimental as originally perceived. The plans propose a luxury 4 star hotel with 270 pod-style rooms including high-tech features, conveniences, and artistic, modern interiors. This compact but luxurious New York style accomodation addresses a gap in the Melbourne hotel market which sits below it’s spacious 5 star competitors but above budget hotel chains. The development would also include a ground floor cafe and hotel rooftop bar and proposes that 8 of the 30 levels remain as education space, with Ms. Moss’ Photography College keen to occupy as a tenant. This permit has not only added further value to a rare, prized landholding but it has also caused a flurry of buyer enquiry from hungry developers all eager to make their mark on the hotel boom. Director Michael Ryan commented, “The hotel sector, in my opinion, is outperforming many of the other property sectors in the Australian property market at the moment. Not only are we rapidly growing as a population, Melbourne is also a major business hub and a safe, tourist destination.” According to Deloittes 2017 Tourism and Hotel Market Report, International visitor numbers to Australia climbed 8.9% over the past year to 8.5 million, with an additional 700,000 visitors arriving on our shores. “As it stands today, Australia is a safe-haven and Melbourne, the most liveable city in the world. This, together with our steady economic climate makes offerings of this calibre very attractive to astute investors from around the globe,” stated Director James Gregson. “We have already had strong interest from a few select groups of developers in China and Malaysia and we will be personally meeting with them in the coming weeks, together with all potential stakeholders of this campaign, regardless of location.” The site occupies 910 square meters of land and will be sold via expressions of interest in early December.

An additional 20 off-the-plan boutique warehouses in the same Business Park have also just been listed by Allard Shelton at 36 Aylesbury Drive, with 6 already on their way to being secured by eager purchasers who missed out on the previous opportunities. The team at Allard Shelton have been the sole agents appointed for both campaigns, led by Directors Michael Ryan and James Gregson. Mr Ryan commented, “Despite there being a significant amount of competing stock in Altona and surrounding suburbs, the demand in this development for off the plan and unfinished stock has been tremendous. We still have a number of disappointed buyers who missed out on 26 Aylesbury Drive and are ready to purchase. Many of them are now setting their sights on the upcoming development at 36 Aylesbury Drive with 6 of the warehouses already on their way to being sold.” Due to this positive response, the vendors of 26 Ayelsbury Drive are contemplating the build of a similar product on another parcel of land they own in the estate. Mr.Ryan stated, “Should these vendors decide to build another similar development, we anticipate the same outstanding response such as the one we are currently experiencing.” 26 Aylesbury Drive was owned and developed by two of Victoria’s largest civil engineering and construction groups, Civilex and Conset Group. Sized between 195sqm and 205sqm, the warehouses sold between $405,000-$425,000 with a total realisation just under $5,000,000. 7 out of the 12 Aylesbury warehouses were sold to owner occupiers with the remaining being sold to investors. Mr. Gregson said that the mix of investors and owner occupiers buying these assets, pointed to the affordability and easy access of the Altona estate as key drivers. “Altona has become a much sought after suburb in recent years not only for industrial property but also residential. Each sector has helped fuel the other. It is close to the Port, accessible to the CBD and outer suburbs via the Western Ring Road and Princes Freeway, and is punctuated by hipster bayside hubs. Now with the proposed West Gate Tunnel project in the pipeline, demand is likely to increase even further.” In recent years, the average residential price in Altona has seen to top some inner city suburbs such as Richmond, Northcote and Doncaster. Improved accessibility via the West Gate Tunnel project is believed to further enhance the demand for industrial, residential and commercial premises in Altona by: Providing an alternative river crossing to the West Gate Bridge Widening the West Gate Freeway Constructing 2 new tunnels under Yarraville that connect to CityLink in the north Improving connections to ports, allowing the West Gate Bridge to be the main connector for the western suburbs with central Melbourne. Construction of 26 Aylesbury Drive, Altona is scheduled for completion early next month. About Allard Shelton Pty. Ltd. Allard Shelton Pty.

Most of the Eagle Farm premium storage sheds sold off the plan. Only a few remain available for purchase. Owner and Developer, Kevin Miller said, "We created this premium product to cater for a growing number of buyers who demand quality storage and space solutions. Sales and interest remain high from the luxury car and boat owners and those who love to tinker with their weekend toys, but we're also attracting and converting online retailers needing secure and accessible warehouse space for stock, and tradespeople with a need for space to store tools and materials. We've developed it to be multi-use, so it's perfect for any space requirement. We also intended to ensure the sheds were a smart investment." Mr. Miller said his storage shed concept has moved beyond the traditional uses of a large and basic industrial building for storage and warehousing. The Workstores offer a far superior product with a live-in manager a standard feature, and a selection of luxury add-ons including such things as a wet bar area and mezzanine level. Admitting it to be a somewhat indulgent space, he described the sheds as a high-end version of the typical backyard man shed or "man cave." The success of The Workstores concept so far was due to the quality design and build with the multi-use buyer in mind. Location was also crucial, he concluded. About the Company The Workstores is a commercial real estate project from renowned Brisbane businessman, Kevin Miller – an award-winning developer and entrepreneur behind some of Brisbane’s most iconic developments. Alongside his business partner and CFO, Michael Rogers, they have created a premium multi-use storage shed and office space concept with impressive high spec design features.
