February 4, 2010 § Leave a comment


The Conder – 2 Newquay Promenade, Docklands

Welcome to your first Financial Review from JC Street. This week, Julie will focus on one of her very favourite developments – The Conder at Docklands.

The Conder, the fifth residential tower at NewQuay and comprising 200 apartments, sits proudly at the head of the NewQuay Promenade.

Named after the renowned Australian artist Charles Conder, the Conder forms a point of contrast to the earlier stages in its architectural presentation and style. The curved shape and predominant glass façade the building has been designed to maximize the views from the apartments to Victoria Harbour, the Bay and the magnificent city aspect.

The 4 level podium and 16 level tower feature a range of individual apartments and sizes and based on the curved nature of the development all apartments are slightly different as a result of the changing view.

Resident’s facilities including an indoor pool and gym are provided on the landscaped podium roof. The ground floor continues the vibrant 24 hour city NewQuay theme with a range of different and exciting in the restaurants and retail outlets facing onto the harbour and forming the eastern frontage to the new art plaza linking the Conder and the Sant’Elia..

Body Corporate: The body corporate for this building is Teys. They are a large body corporate management firm who manage several buildings in the Docklands precinct.

Facilities: The development has a great sense of community which is encouraged by the facilities of pool and swanky gym as well as sauna, bbq area and common outdoor area.

There is also a thriving retail element at Docklands, which provides great convenience and appeals to many of the owners and tenants in the block. Restaurants such as Live Bait, Berth and Mecca Bah have a cult following, as does the new super-supermarket Costco. A new shopping precinct featuring many well loved stores and the impending addition of Myer add to desire for leasing accommodation who work at Docklands. There is great parking facilities onsite for visitors, and wonderful proximity to Etihad Stadium. Employers such as NAB and ANZ have also moved their sizable workforces to the Docklands precinct, making growth from the corporate sector a sure thing.

Demographics: Since original settlement, we have seen the slow but steady shift of higher occupancy rates by owners. Most purchasers at the Nolan are young professionals who work locally in the CBD. There are a few more mature owners or families from the country who utilise their apartment as a ‘lock up and leave’ second home. There are investors also who lease privately or through serviced apartment arrangements.

Year of Build: 2003

Developer: MAB Corporation

Number of Apartments in Block: Approximately 200

Construction Nearby Underway: The Southern Star Skywheel is in construction, and will likely mimic a London Eye style tourist attraction. VicUrban are currently constructing a development named Convesso Concavo.

Forecast for the 2010-2011 Financial Year: We invisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in Docklands for the first half of 2010. Dependant on bank interest rates, we could experience a flattening of the market in 2010 in the plus $500,000 sector. Mum and Dad investors could well make a comeback in 2010 once first home owners lose their puff and buying power. The Conder offers a unique buying opportunity in a blue chip neighbourhood which should cushion it from too many market fluctuations.
