6,000 New Apartments Slated For Parramatta

The New South Wales Government has announced the delivery of 6,000 new apartments in North Parramatta.

The 146-hectare government owned site between Parramatta River and O’Connell Street has a price tag of $2.1 billion and will see buildings as high as 30-storeys built over the next 15-20 years, preserving the abundance of heritage buildings in the precinct.

Urban Taskforce CEO Chris Johnson said it was important to balance the new development with the heritage buildings.

“The NSW Government has got the balance right with apartment towers up to 30 storeys high on those parts of the site remote from heritage and only low rise buildings nearer to the heritage precinct,” Mr Johnson said.

Melbourne property prices leap 6.4 per cent over winter

Melbourne is leading the country for property price growth, according to new quarterly figures released on Monday.

Yet as home owners gear up for the main selling season, some Melbourne agents say the 6.4 per cent jump in home values – 1.4 per cent higher than Sydney – should be treated with a degree of caution.

Typically, the winter is a slower time for property, but researcher RP Data said Melbourne home values are on the rise.

“House values can go up regardless of the season, they’re not dependent on good weather, they’re dependent upon the interface between supply and demand,” RP Data Victoria property market spokesman Robert Larocca said.

New data reveals Generation Y would rather live close to the city than buy a home

For Generation Y the great Australian dream of a home in the suburbs is dead, with young people more interested in flash cars and trendy bars.
