February 2011 – Development application lodged for Marque Hotel site
The Development Application (DA) for a residential apartment complex on the Marque Hotel site was lodged in early February and we have received confirmation from ACTPLA that the DA has passed the completeness check stage and will now proceed to the next stage. The residential development market has been very strong in 2011 with a number of developments selling off the plan in a very short period of time. The fundamentals of the market continue to be strong with a tight vacancy rate and constrained supply thanks to restricted credit markets and planning delays. The ACT Governments proposed changes to the manner in which lease variations are approved and the associated costs will cause further delay to projects. Fortunately our project has been assessed and the change of use charge negotiated.
A significant risk to the timing of the project could follow from the Commonwealth Government delivering a tough budget in May. A tough budget may soften investor confidence and therefore delay presales of the planned residential apartments. However the site is extremely well located and we would anticipate a strong take-up in an improving market. In the event the development was delayed we would attempt to negotiate a lease extension with the existing tenant and if we were unsuccessful we would negotiate a management contract with a local operator to manage the Hotel on our behalf.
We propose to mitigate further development risk in the project by preselling the apartments and negotiating an appropriate building contract with a guaranteed maximum price. At this point there will be further development equity/finance required and ordinary unit holders will be provided with the opportunity to further invest on a pro rata basis.

December 2010 – Paul Kane appointed as independent director

Paul has an extensive background in the banking industry most recently as the Regional Leader for Corporate & Business banking for St George Bank in the ACT, a position he held for 13 years until leaving the bank in late 2010. Paul is a highly credible Canberra business leader who is well respected by the property/construction industry, business and banking circles. Paul is a member of the investment committee.
December 2010 – Continuous Disclosure Notice - Change of Use Approved for Canberra House
We have received a final assessment on the change of use charge for Canberra House following the approval to vary the lease purpose clause to remove the gross floor area restriction and include a residential use on title. The final assessment provides us with the opportunity to increase the floor area on the site from 14,000 sqm to approximately 50,000 sqm including residential. This variation will provide flexibility and will generate significant value in the future. Following payment of the change of use charge, we will be in a better position to advance the master plan of the site.
December 2010 – Continuous Disclosure Notice - Orange development approved
We are pleased to advise that the Development Applications for the refurbishment of the shopping centre and the construction of the Quest Apartments have been approved.

With the DA approvals now in place we are assessing the long term plans for the property, which upon completion of the development, may include divestment of either the Shopping Centre or Quest Apartments, or both.
The Quest Apartments have been designed to enable strata titling and provide the opportunity to sell down the complex on an apartment by apartment basis.
