Posted June 19, 2018 03:23:49 The Sydney housing market has been the subject of renewed scrutiny in recent weeks with several major developers, including HES, saying they will not build new homes on their properties.
The Sydney market is one of the most expensive in the country with average prices of $1.1 million.
The new properties are mostly apartment complexes that can sell for more than $1 million, and are not being built by private developers.
The market has seen several major developments come online over the past year with developers such as Kiewit and Riewoldt Development.
Kiewits owner James Kiewitz said the company was working on building a six-storey apartment block at its site.
«The project is in the final stages and will be completed by the end of June 2018,» Mr Kiewiz said.
«We will be able to announce our new location next month.»
Kiewitsch Development CEO Steve Gros said he would be interested in purchasing a property at its new site.
Mr Gros did not give a timeframe for when the company would announce its new location.
«It is an exciting time for the industry,» he said.
The property at the corner of Central and Swanston streets is the largest of the new developments, with apartments starting at $1,000,000.
The area surrounding the site has also seen a flurry of new apartments and apartments with some of the larger complexes starting at between $1 and $2 million.
Sydney’s property market is expected to be on the up over the next year with new properties hitting the market on a regular basis.
One of the biggest properties to come on the market recently was the $1 billion project by the developer HES to build two new apartments in the area at Central and Spadina Streets.
Mr Kietz said he believed the new apartments would be «huge».
«The new apartment buildings are going to be huge,» he told the ABC.
Mr Kitzitz said it was unclear when the new projects would open, but he said the site was not far from the future site of the Sydney Opera House. «
If you look at the block at Central, the number of units is probably around 25 or 30.»
Mr Kitzitz said it was unclear when the new projects would open, but he said the site was not far from the future site of the Sydney Opera House.
He said he had been «briefed» by HES about its plans, but would not disclose their location.
He did say that the company’s construction plans included a planned residential complex at the site, which would include a restaurant and retail space.
«As the development progresses, we’ll be sharing more information,» Mr Graz said.
Mr Hesp said HES was planning a number of other apartments.
«HES is currently looking at several new apartments, some of which are apartments in other blocks,» he wrote in a Facebook post.
«At this time, we have no information about the location of any of the development.»
HES and Mr Kritz’s company, Kiewiet, have also expressed interest in the construction of two new apartment blocks at Swanston Street and Swanwick Street.
However, Mr Grooms said it would be too soon to say if HES would be building new units there.
«These are not things that we are discussing right now,» he added.
«There are a number more apartments that we need to look at at this time.»
