Asset acquired in 2000, with refurbishments completed in 2001 & 2003 and Sold in 2008

This asset was managed by David while in receivership and ultimately purchased by the Joint Venture following the resolution of heritage listed constraints. The site was significantly refurbished by the Joint Venture, whereby a Coles Express and Target became highly successful anchor tenants complementing 25 mixed retail and high end fashion outlets fronting Queen, Edward and Adelaide Streets. Above the retail level was a mixture of commercial office tenancies. This process generated increased holding returns for the Joint Venture enabling the future development plans to be generated. The amalgamation of the adjoining David Jones property expanded and provided volume to the prime CBD site. The Joint Venture prepared and lodged development applications over the amalgamated site for a new integrated retail complex including a new David Jones store, ancillary car parking and associated high end specialty retail, now known as Queens Plaza. David was part of the Joint Venture team, where his responsibilities focused on the acquisition, refurbishment, leasing programs along with the asset and feasibility management of the project and development process.
