There is a councillor ward in Richlands, Brisbane named: Milton Dick.

According to profile.id: http://profile.id.com.au/darwin/about?WebID=150

Quote:
Fannie Bay is thought to be named after Fanny Carandini, a popular opera singer in the late 1800s.
This commercial site confirms....

Quote:
The origin of Fannie Bay's name is still uncertain up to this point but there are some who claim that English surveyor George Woodroffe Goyder named the place after Fanny Carandini, the daughter of Count Gerome Carandini, the 10th Marquise of Saranzo.

Dick Ward Drive was named after an honourable territorian.

Okay here is some thing interesting from the Australian Newspaper. A dodgy name means nothing when properties there are high value.

They have a facebook page for that place...

GREAT NEWS FOR DARWIN

Darwin CBD to scrap 90m building height limit

BEN SMEE NT News July 17, 2015 4:55PM

THE sky is now the limit for the Darwin CBD.

The NT Government will announce today it has decided to scrap the 90-metre cap on city development.

And while it will likely not mean massive skyscrapers, because any new tower will need the approval of both defence and civil aviation authorities, the decision was made in the hope it might encourage investment in the sort of showpiece projects that could become city icons.

Planning Minister Dave Tollner told the NT News the 55-metre restriction along The Esplanade and the 90-metre limit on the south-western side of Mitchell St would both be retained in the NT Planning Scheme. But the blanket limit for the city centre, a long legacy of the RAAF base and airport being located so close to the CBD, will go.

“If architects have the freedom to design above 90m they will have the flexibility to create more imaginative buildings and a more attractive skyline,’ Mr Tollner said.

“We don’t want to see tall buildings lining the Esplanade and destroying the spectacular views of Darwin Harbour from other buildings in the CBD.

“But elsewhere there are good reasons for allowing developers to consider building higher than the arbitrary 90-metre limit.”

Mr Tollner said it was unlikely there would be many buildings over about 100m because of the aviation restrictions. The RAAF has long objected to the lifting of the height limit and any proposal must seek consent from defence, Darwin International Airport and the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

Only once these approvals are gained, a developer would still need to seek the approval of the NT planning system.

“High-rise buildings are now a common feature of the CBD and this decision will help ease the demand for development elsewhere in Darwin,” Mr Tollner said.

The proposal was first raised by former Planning Minister Peter Chandler and was placed on public exhibition late last year. There were five objections.

The Darwin Waterfront precinct is considered outside the CBD and will not be affected by today’s amendment to the planning scheme.

This is like me declaring myself god. Its nice but it isnt going to make much difference to anything.

So the nt govt are saying go for it, but then defence, infrastrucutre and DIA are going to tell you to stick it. Lol.

Also track down Neil Sunners and ask him why much above 90m is difficult. I'll boil it down to an easy tl;dr. $$$$$$$

Dick Ward was a very prominent lawyer, member of the legislative council and eventually Supreme court judge.

Still one of Darwins biggest law firms still bears his name. Ward Keller

I can't quite remember but I think the OLS for most of the CBD was around the 120m mark which isn't too short, nearly twice the height of what can be built in Cairns.

Looks like it will be a good addition to that part of town.

Design looks quite good too.

Roof top park top of trees expected to make the tip reach 91m

That frame at the top must be also a first too... I'm just curious how the park will fare during a cyclone though

Lot 1356 & Lot 2827 Town of Darwin - 48-52 Daly Street.

It would just be to show the potential for the site. I certainly hope that design wouldn't be built! Would be great to see that site developed though.

Hey guys, greetings from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada! I didn't know where else to post this, so I thought it would be okay to do so here.

There is a very strong potential for my company to allow me to relocate to Australia in one of several cities, including Darwin. I was there this past winter (February, so your summer). I had a chance to hang out with some of my colleagues from our Darwin office, and they took me Barramundi fishing; saw lots of wildlife including crocodiles!

From what I saw, I really liked the city and it seems to be one of the upcoming areas of the country. I was just wondering what the rental market is like there. And no worries about a hot and humid climate year round; I have no issues with that whatsoever. Also, as a single guy, if it's a decent place to potentially meet women. Any input from locals would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Woolworths to sell under-construction Bakewell shopping centre but retain lease

ASHLEY MANICAROS | NT News | October 28, 2015 9:13AM


Woolworths Bakewell


WOOLWORTHS will sell its under-construction Bakewell store but remain an anchor tenant for the new owners.

The sale is part of $180 million of “neighbourhood shopping centres” taken to market across Australia.

The Bakewell store is likely to fetch around $30 million.

CBRE Australian Retail Investments has been appointed to market the six Woolworths anchored properties, which include a mix of recently completed and partially developed retail assets in Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria and the Northern Territory.

All of the assets are secured by long term, 20-year lease backs to Woolworths and the leasing on the support tenancies is strong as all of the centres on offer are situated in high growth corridors with very strong demographics.

The existing Palmerston Woolworths turns over more than $50 million a year.

Local developer Terry Finnochiaro, from Gaymark Investments in Parap, said having a guaranteed anchor tenant like Woolworths lowered the risk for investors but would come at a higher initial price.

“The model of the likes of Woolworths and Wesfarmers building and then onselling these was adopted after the global financial crisis,” he said.

“This is more likely to be pitched at the institutional investors.”

CBRE’s National Director, Retail Investments, Peter Rossi said the sale campaign was expected to generate significant interest from local investors, syndicators and institutions seeking to secure the assets either as a portfolio, individually or a combination of the Woolworths assets on offer.

“Woolworths’ shopping centre development program has been extremely successful due to their astute site selection, pragmatic and practical design philosophy and the very high standards and finishes they have included in all of their new projects,” Mr Rossi said.

Up for sale are assets at Cornubia in Queensland; Mandurah and Dalyellup in Western Australia; Bakewell in the North Territory; and Seville and Selandra Rise in Victoria.

Three of the centres were recently completed with the remaining three to be sold by way of a development management agreement.

Woolworths has divested more than $2.8 billion of property assets since mid-2010, including the creation of the Shopping Centres Australasia Property Group in 2012 and the sale of 54 freehold properties by ALH Group Pty Ltd in September 2014.

Expressions of Interest in the national neighbourhood centre collection being offered by CBRE close November 26, 2015.

Hey Greco, from what I know the rental market has plummeted recently which is great for renters. It was one of the highest in the country at one stage, but the downturn in the mining expansion has cooled down Darwin. Other than that Ive never been to Darwin but would love to visit, so don't know any more about it
