Has anyone here bought an apartment off the plan before and gone through settlement?
Roughly how long before the building is completed would you have to settle the balance or get financing with your bank i.e. mortgage? Is it like six months before completion?

I think the lawyer mentioned oh they will let you know blah blah blah we scumbag lawyers charge high fees and so I switched off...

You pay your 10% deposit at the time of exchange, then you wait for the building to be built. When its completed and ready to move in, thats when you settle and get the keys. You are probs best to go looking for a mortgage a few months before settlement so that you have all your finances in order and ready to go. I know Australand generally keep people updated on the progress of the build and they will send you letters as it gets closer to settlement advising you when settlement will be. You can check too with your solicitor as they will be advised of the exact date near the time.

So yeah, you settle the balance on the day you get the keys, not 6months before. I would double check all of this with your solicitor just to be sure, but this has been my experience, and I've purchased a few properties off the plan.

I saw this too Walexx. There was a bulldozer moving the dirt not far from the station, in the fenced-in area. Anyone have any idea what's going on there?

They are clearing the site for digging to commence for the 'Linc' Building.

It's all go go go from here. Once digging for Linc is done, they will start on digging for Arc.

The access to the station via Brodie Spark should only be a few months away now, as will the cul-de-sac be moved and re-located at the end of Brodie Spark for the bus service.

That I have no idea about mate, but the maps of the roads that I posted does show the road going that way so yeah not sure.

I did have a look at the height of the railway line and its a lot lower on the Lusty St side, then on the Guess Ave side, so I don't know if anything could actually go under the railway line as the road on DP side is elevated and will probably stay that way, especially with the Aldi development going in.

I think Council is the best place to get answers on that.

Went through Wolli Creek for the first time on the train on Monday and was impressed by the existing density.

So I researched Wolli Creek (not knowing much about the suburb).

Not sure how accurate these figures are but these are the population estimates between now and 2031 for Wolli Creek...

http://forecast2.id.com.au/templates...ck/PDF/260.pdf

2011 - 2,926
2016 - 5,208
2021 - 6,955
2026 - 8,673
2031 - 10,718

This means Wolli Creek is going to be one of Sydney's densest suburbs by 2031

I can't say whether I am that keen on living in a place that dense, but then again, if the facilities, and amenities are there, it will be a great place to live.

Hopefully the next few years won't mirror the pace of the last few. I think from here on though that there will be a lot of activity and not much break in that activity for years and years to come.

A part from DP, there is Aldi, 8 Wolli, Riverview Apartments, Top Apartments, Insight, Luxuria, and whatever else is on the way.

Lets hope the people creating these new buildings can do this place justice and give us a really great, busy, dynamic, village to live in and be a part of.

Wow, awesome work there Junkie13. Where did you get all the info from ?. Its certainly going to be one very busy area. They better hurry up and put in all those proposed roads.

As for parkside, I thought that was dead as well. Last info I had on it was it was going to be 140 apartments (11S, 48 1B, 96 2B, 6 3B)

It was from the forecast report that Sky posted. Seem to be a reliable source as it was done in March 12 and commissioned by Rockdale council.

For all those wondering when Woolies will open their doors ?, I have just been advised by Woolworth's that the Grand Opening will be in 12 weeks time on Thursday 02 Aug. Finally we have ourselves a date

I have been living in Arncliffe for the last two years (I love this area by the way, moved from the northern beaches).. and obviously from the information on this site, there are a lot more units springing up in Wolli Creek and Arncliffe in the next few years. I just wonder if the government has plans to expand/build more roads around this whole area to be able to cope with the influx of people who will be moving in. Princes Highway and the M5 are absolutely clogged already in peak hour, not to mention Forest Road, Arncliffe. Anyone know what the bigger picture is to upgrade and gentrify not just the Wolli Creek hub but Arncliffe itself? I have been reading this site for the last year or so, it's been great how you all have so much information you can share.

Welcome to the forum

I don't know the area well (only just relocated from Qld) but Infrastructure NSW is due to make a recommendation to the State later this year on Sydney's next motorway project and media reports suggest the M5 will take precedence over the M4 East extension.

Does anyone know if there are any 70m+ buildings U/C, approved and proposed for Wolli Creek?

Uhmmm how many floors would 70m+ be ??. There is a building at Discovery Point coming up that will be around 21-22 storeys. Considering that their floor heights are 2.7 compared to 2.4 for Proximity across the road, the building will be a few floors higher than Proximity which I think is 21 storeys.

Also in 15years time the location of where Woolies is will be take up by a 24 storey (max for the area (i think ?) due proximity to airport) building and that site will be re-developed into 3 or 4 buildings on top of a multi level shopping ctr. So for those who might be confused, the Woolies that opens on 2 Aug is just a temporary supermarket with a max 15years on that site. After 15years it will be torn down to make way for stage 2 and what will be the real deal development on that site.
