Multiplex pares back in Melbourne
Mathew Dunckley
13 December 2006
Australian Financial Review


Multiplex Group has jettisoned another chunk of its Melbourne inner-city development site portfolio, selling a large CBD fringe block for $13.5 million.

Multiplex picked up the 8786 square metre site at 101 Dudley Street, West Melbourne as part of a parcel of properties it bought from the Silman family last year for about $40 million.

The buyer, commercial furniture maker Schiavello, is expected to initially occupy the site's four-storey warehouse but is tipped to develop it in the long term.

Earlier this year Multiplex offloaded five other West Melbourne properties from the Silman portfolio to the Bennelong Group for $32 million.

Colliers International agents Matt Stagg and Pat Burke negotiated the most recent sale. Mr Stagg said it was one of the largest Melbourne CBD fringe land sales in recent years.

The site's warehouse was operated by a commercial car park on a monthly lease, he said.

Schiavello holds another prime CBD fringe site at Southbank opposite Crown Casino.

The site at 31-49 Queensbridge Street houses its main city showroom and some offices but is also subject to a permit for a 68-storey apartment building put forward by Schiavello.

Managing director Tony Schiavello said he was negotiating with a joint-venture partner and hoped to begin construction within a year. It was possible the project could begin without presales, he said.

No disrespect Cul but I reckon the developer would know better than the architect and Schiavello clearly states in the article that he hopes to start construction this year. It's not like with Eureka where Nonda Katsalidis (the architect for those who don't know) also happened to be one of the developers. Besides a 2007 start sounds better than a 2008-09 start.

So first you say "It won't start this year" and now you say it might start this year.

Well with ONLY 116 posts that clearly makes anything I have to say far less important than anything you have to say.
Thanks for that.

Wonderful to have those renders, but just want to point something out: those comments in this article are a lift from an earlier peice a couple of months ago - not something Schiavello has said this week.

It's somewhere back on this thread: Don't mean to be pouring cold water on our hopes for this beauty: we'll get it eventually.

PS : it is a decent-size building world scale, jst not a super-tall. Toronto is quite excited about a new 200m or so proposal for their midtown, and justifiably so.


Ah, sorry - I see the article posted by Archi was Dec 13, not a new one. The article I was talking about. Well Archi, how about giving us a render of the new design in location on the same pic, if that's possible. That one with your render is one of my recent favorites.

Not to be picky Bronte, but the 80 storey 1 Bloor East is likely to be 270m or taller. That's very tall for that particular area (which is booming with a fistful of 150m-ish projects. It will stand out in skyline more than Trump.

s.
It is unlikely that a 79 storey building would be only 200m, Bronte. If that were the case people would have to crouch for fear of their heads going through the ceiling!
