Developer Harry Triguboff now has over 3,000 apartments in Sydney as part of his property investment portfolio.

The Meriton group founder and owner has a total of 3066 apartments, estimated to be worth in excess of $3 billion.

Some 4500 serviced apartments are owned by Meriton.

Victor Toscano, Meriton’s head of residential leasing, said that the vacancy rate for the 6000‐plus apartment’s rent roll was only 0.06 per cent.

“This year we hit an all‐time record, signing up 134 tenants in one week and battled to keep up with demand, which is great for both Mr Triguboff and for our investor clients," he said,

“People want to be within easy reach of the CBD and they are after lifestyle – they want things like pools and gyms and they want shops, restaurants and cafes.

"The Triguboff‐owned apartments produced income of $79.57 million in the 2015‐16 year.

“A lot have been added to Mr Triguboff’s portfolio since June 30 so the income figure’s expected to top $100 million in the latest financial year.

“He’s extremely comfortable when it comes to keeping apartments because his company’s built the blocks and knows everything about them.

“He’s always insisted, be it for his own apartments or for those that are sold, that each building has a dedicated on‐site manager.”

"The holdings were spread across 11 Meriton projects and were in the suburbs of Chatswood, Lane Cove (pictured above), Chiswick, Rhodes, North Sydney, Waterloo, Zetland and Mascot.

“The first big block that was retained was at Bondi Junction, where the 305 apartments have since been converted to serviced apartments.”
