A development site in Brisbane’s southwest with approval for homes and a childcare centre has come to market.
The 8,411 square metre site at 70 Fleming Road in Chapel Hill has approval for 17 three-bedroom homes and a 108-place childcare centre with 25 car parks.
The land parcel is currently predominantly vacant, housing just a single detached dwelling on the southern portion of the site.
The property will be taken to market via an expressions of interest campaign run by Christian Sandstrom of Knight Frank on behalf of the vendor, a local investor.
“This property is one of the last remaining sites approved for townhouses by council in the Brisbane local government area, which will make it even more sought after as developers look to provide more affordable housing options to the market,” said Sandstrom.
“The site is centrally located within Chapel Hill, approximately 15 kilometres west of the Brisbane CBD, and benefits from close proximity to multiple bus routes accessed via Chapel Hill Road as well as nearby retail amenities including Kenmore Village,” he added.
A two-storey, 2,344 square metre commercial building on a circa 4,048 square metre site at 52-60 Kent Road in Mascot has been listed with Colliers’ Michael Crombie and Jackson Wray, who have the listing on behalf of Dick Smith Investments.
“This represents a price point that the majority of people can afford and ticks so many boxes from a real estate acquisition perspective. With absolute flexibility relating to the zoning, this allows industrial strata, traditional warehouse, office, self-storage and the list goes on,” said Crombie.
Zoned E4 General Industrial, the building has a corner position with three street frontages and flexible zoning, allowing for commercial use.
The property generates a passive holding income with a height limit of 44 meters which provides ample room to move vertically. On top of this, there are 74 parking spaces catering to the needs of customers, visitors and employees.
