Ringwood's has 600 apartments under construction, as a new project nears launch

The erection of a tower crane for 233 East has seen the overall number of apartments under construction within Ringwood surge to approximately 600. These 600 apartments are spread across seven separate apartment developments of varying sizes, yet the overall figure is representative of the underlying demand for apartment living in the outer eastern suburb. 233 East is at this stage the highest profile development to begin construction owing to...

Ringwood's apartment market comes of age

Ringwood's apartment market is displaying a new-found degree of depth and maturity of late. Whilst Urban Melbourne has in the past placed the spotlight on a handful of pending high-rise projects that will physically redefine the suburb, Ringwood's current apartment charge is most definitely due to a squadron of low and mid-rise projects that have propelled the suburb to the fore as an apartment market of choice.

Anchoring Ringwood's current uplift in development is QIC's Eastland Stage 5 expansion, with the build...
