The Week That Was - 31 August

With the noticeable pick-up in activity across the eastern states, we've spent another busy week off our feet and on the grid. It was hustle and bustle and strong lattes all around the Development Ready office; let me give you a snapshot at what's been happening this week. 

Major Alternative Developments in Construction
We’ve recently been discussing the apparent growth trends of alternate property development sectors – see here.

With our discussions ranging from aged-care - to student housing, and beyond - we thought it apt timing to feature some important alternative developments across the country.

In our first of a three-part showcase, we’re discussing five alternate developments that are currently in construction in Victoria and the factors that have made them successful in receiving development approval and buyer interest. See what's piqued our interest here.

Breaking ground amongst a promising future
Gold Coast Mayor, Tom Tate, and Queensland State Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, joined a breaking of the ground ceremony at the future site of the much anticipated Dorsett Hotel and Star Residences on the Gold Coast.

The $400 million project is described as a 'shot in the arm' for the local economy and continues a trend across Australia begging the question is Australia fast becoming a hotel growth centre?

Hotel Panel Discussion and Networking event
We will be diving into this topic even further at our upcoming industry event to be held in Melbourne. There are still a few tickets remaining and I urge you to snap them up while they are still available.

We will be joined by three industry experts from Colliers International, Cottee Parker Architects and Prime Square respectively. The panel discussion will be preceded and followed by an intimate industry networking event with drinks and food provided; it's sure to be a rewarding evening. Secure tickets here.

Town Planning and Surveying - ‘Craig Wood Interview’
Our latest podcast episode has just been uploaded and features the DR team of TC and Rob sitting down with town planning expert, and Bennett+Bennett's Brisbane Director, Craig Wood.

Through this comprehensive and insightful discussion, Rob and TC dug deep into Craig’s property development journey to uncover key learnings of the town planning and surveying sector.

Overall, this podcast imparts important insights that will advantage developers towards gaining project approval - Click here to listen.

With that we see the closing of another month and ushering in of a new season - I hope the new month puts a spring in your step.

All the best,
 Nick Materia, Founder, Development Ready
