hoepfully the last one is readable - has a few notes about wall retention and the water tank. obviously the internals of the heritage buildings are gutted though more or less.

yes think they took a dive when the developer realised they would have to pay copyright (the originals are worth millions).... shame really they could have commissioned something of their own local art

THE UPPER WEST SIDE TEAM
Here's what will happen. You will arrive and there will be multiple agents talking to multiple buyers. Each agent will have certain apartments in the buidling to sell, so If you don't like what is offered it will be bad luck.

They will try to create an atmosphere of immediacy and tell you that if you don't decide now then you will lose your chance. They are not remotely interested in your wellbeing, lifestyle or capacity to finance. They are Real Estate agents.

Bring your camera and make sure you take plenty of photos of the building model and display suite, particularly the fittings in the bedroom(s) and kitchen. This is so that after the building is completed and corners are cut (they all do it) you can refer to the photos and tell them you were mis-represented. Their contract will be watertight but having photos allows you to claim moral high-ground. This worked for me and I got a discount off an apartment I purchased (lot's of negotiations though.)

All they want is your signature and a holding deposit. They are Real Estate agents.

(BTW - welcome to the forums)

Under 40sqm Apartments

I have been to 3 banks soo far on Studio apartments in UMS and Trilogi in Prahran. They are all telling me that they will not support apartments under 40sqm without a dramatic deposit provided by me.

Is anyone else finding this true? what is going to happen to developments like these if people cant settle?

try Commonwealth Bank.

they used to lend under 40sqm up to 80% of the value (ie. you would need a 20% deposit). they were the best of hte big 4 banks. a mortgage broker might be able to help you find a non-bank lender that would do better.

You lose your deposit. Central Equity used to (and still may) have a policy where they would only sell one unit in a new development to one individual. They no doubt would relax it slightly in particular cases, but the basic aim was to protect themselves against a situation where a buyer who was hoping to sell on at profit put down deposits on a number of units then was not able to on sell or complete, which would have left CE with a significant number of aborted sales.

They also have very onerous penalty clauses in their contract relating to late settlement, and on the first CE unit I bought I was warned by my solicitor that they were being rigidly enforced. CBA produced the promised funds just in time but it was close.

West Side storeys sold with confidence
JASON DOWLING
June 17, 2010

THE developers behind a massive redevelopment the size of a small suburb on the corner of Lonsdale and Spencer streets in the city are so confident of planning approval they have taken out $50,000 full-page advertisements in metropolitan newspapers and built a display unit spruiking the project.

The advertisement for the Upper West Side development, site of a former power station, says: ''Melbourne's newest master-planned precinct is coming.''

But the project, which includes 2500 apartments and four towers of between 31 and 50 storeys, has yet to obtain approval from Planning Minister Justin Madden.

Mr Madden's spokesman said the planning application would be considered by a new joint state government and City of Melbourne committee.

The committee will make a recommendation to Mr Madden, who has final say over the development. A spokeswoman for the developer said: ''Far East Consortium is currently awaiting approval regarding the proposed development at Spencer Street, Upper West Side.

''A … campaign is currently being undertaken to determine market interest.''

She said the company did not discuss pre-sales.

MCC and all other approval authorities have been involved in the approvals process for more than 6 months and no major red flags have been raised.

I'd suggest some DPCD urban designer is holding ground on one little detail or perhaps they are still playing around with the treatment heritage buildings fronting Spencer Street...

Planning approval for this is mainly just waiting to convene the new committee process.

im still concerned about the ability to settle such small apartments. the more i enquire the faster Banks are telling me 40% deposits are required. this is not going to help affordability.
