Buyers unsurprisingly are still showing a keen interest in Collingwood's apartment market, as demonstrated by Pace of Collingwood's strong sales.
Pace Development Group's latest project notched the enviable figure of accounting for 50% of the building's apartments during its first week at sales. This in turn has prompted Pace to commence construction on the project immediately, with an eye toward completion during the last quarter of 2017.
At 75 Wellington Street, Pace of Collingwood will include 77 apartments within the SJB Architects-designed 9 level edifice. As a developer/builder Pace will oversee construction of the project, which joins 808 Sydney Road and Pace of Northcote as fellow current builds under the Pace banner.
It’s very rare to see construction of a property development of this scale commence so soon after the launch. It’s one of the great benefits of having an in-house construction team and means we can confidently assure our purchasers on delivery timeframes.Daryl Wilkinson: Pace Sales Manager
With a number of projects freshly completed and no sign of buyer intent waning plus a relative dearth of projects at sales, prospective Collingwood apartment purchasers will be limited in what they can secure.
As a point of reference, Urban Melbourne has in the past highlighted the surge in apartment sales and subsequent construction boom that has blanketed many parts of Collingwood. Since late 2014, well in excess of 1,000 apartments have been completed in the area.
As these projects have been completed, others have filled the void, but in doing so have fallen well short of the volume of apartments being offered relative to recent years.
So much so the fresh release of Holme Apartments for sale is the only new release that buyers can peruse in Collingwood. The imminent release of 88 Cambridge will add to available buyer stock, as the Centreland Property-backed project looks to add 93 apartments to the suburb.
