Property developer Fridcorp has acquired a site in inner-city Melbourne as part of its growth strategy in the city.

The 1,311 square metre site at 3 and 5 – 15 Shiel Street, North Melbourne, was purchased with an existing permit for 65 homes from The Docklands Residences in early March.

Along with design collaborator The Docklands ResidencesFridcorp is working on modified plans for about 120 one and two-bedroom apartments, and will submit them to Melbourne City Council over the coming months.

Fridcorp founder and director Paul Fridman said the company is looking at opportunities in Melbourne inner-city areas such as North Melbourne.

“We believe there is strong demand for apartments in prime locations that provide a genuine alternative to a home without compromising on design and lifestyle," he said.

The Docklands Residences will deliver both the architecture and interiors for the project. 

Fridcorp expects to launch the project in early 2017, with construction scheduled to start from mid-2017.

The developer has nearly $1.5 billion worth projects in Albion, Brisbane, South Yarra, Melbourne and Erskineville, Sydney. They are expected to bring 1700 additional apartments to the market this year.
