Types of property developments
The type of development you undertake will be dependent on the size and shape of your block and the local council requirements.
Some of our development solutions include but are not limited to:
1 into 2 Development
A moderately-sized block can be divided to allow for two designs—either two storey, single storey or a mixture on single or separate titles.
Duplex (or Dual Occupancy) Development
A duplex development is one residential building containing two properties which are situated under the same roof with a dividing wall between them. Each home has its own entrance, yard and amenities.
A duplex development can often be much cheaper than building two separate homes. They are also known to increase your equity, create a higher yield on your block and provide a greater rental return.
Multiple Dwelling Development (3+ dwellings)
If you own a large block of land, then anything may be possible to achieve maximum investment return. A range of options are available including group dwellings (townhouses, duplexes, units or apartments).
Large corner blocks provide optimum development potential as they can be divided into two lots, with each lot providing its own access and street frontage.
Corner cut-off developments often achieve higher prices when selling due to generally having larger frontages, the ease of access and fewer neighbours.
Hammerhead developments, also known as flagpole or battle-axe, are becoming quite popular as they provide you with the opportunity to invest in a new home while keeping your current property. Alternatively, you can subdivide your land, sell the back or side yard and keep your existing home—or you can build two new dwellings on the block.
With a hammerhead development, a driveway is generally running down the side of the front property to allow for access to a rear home.
