Property developer and investor Zone Q has broken ground on its first Sydney residential project, Aqualuna, a prestige 63-apartment, $155M project in the blue ribbon harbourside suburb of Milsons Point.
Designed by globally-recognised architect Koichi Takada, the eight-storey boutique building launched to the market early in 2017 achieving 70 per cent of sales within three weeks.
Ceerose has now been appointed to deliver the apartments and expects a two-year build program.
Zone Q Project Manager, Andrew Wilkinson, says the business, which has recently grown its development pipeline to $200M and its Australian asset-base to $500M with a series of commercial acquisitions in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne, was excited to break ground on Aqualuna.
“We wanted our first project in Sydney to set a new benchmark in the market. It’s a verystrategic location for us as an entry to the Eastern Seaboard residential market and offers us the perfect platform to debut the kind of quality product Zone Q is becoming known for,” hesays.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Ceerose and know that we have a great builder thatshares our commitment to quality.”
Ceerose Managing Director Edward Doueihi comments, “It is a privilege to be building what is set to become a landmark project overlooking Sydney’s harbourfront. Approximately 500workers will be employed during the construction phase. Demolition recently started and the main work is expected to commence later this month.
“The Ceerose name has become synonymous with constructing boutique residential buildings that epitomise luxurious living,” he says.
Aqualuna is located metres from the harbour foreshore; is within walking distance of Kirribilli village, Luna Park, North Sydney Olympic Pool and is only minutes by ferry or train to Sydney's CBD.
Segmenting the population by generation is part of popular culture. The generation that came of age in the 1970s is very different to that of the 1980s or 2000s, having grown up with different technology, political and social events.
When the market gets difficult as it is currently it makes you step back and re-assess. Whilst you can do all of the objective commercial assessment in the world, key drivers are ultimately emotional and psychological. Fundamentally it is your "why" that governs your "how". The strength of these emotional and psychological drivers is what gives you the ware withal and grit to know when to hold, fold, walk away or run.
A few years ago I watched an ESPN documentary on NBA and NFL players and this phenomenon how when their careers are up after their moment in the sun, most, 60% and 78% respectively, end up financially destitute. When you think about the fact that most of these professional athletes earn more in just a year of their career than what most of us will earn via our working jobs in a lifetime, yet end up with nothing, it is really a really interesting phenomenon. On the other hand, there is the story of the UPS worker who never earned more than $14,000 a year and invested consistently, amassing a fortune of $70 million over his lifetime, $36m of which he donated to education-based charities to support young people getting a quality education.
