NSW: The new Arthur Phillip High School in Parramatta is a state of art design for a school

29D ago 0 Replies 48 Views
Sydney has never seen a public school like it.
When Arthur Phillip High's $225 million high-rise campus opens in Parramatta in term one next year, abseilers will clean the windows.

Students will eat lunch in mesh-enclosed courtyards overlooking city rooftops, before continuing their lessons in sound-proofed music rooms, or in penthouse science labs, or in atriums with eight metre-high ceilings.
The Herald visited the new high school on Tuesday, as construction of the ambitious project enters its final phase and students at the original, 144-year-old Arthur Phillip High across the road prepare to begin testing its state-of-the-art facilities.

NSW: Parramatta has been identified as the best location for availing first home buyer benefits

The Parramatta region has the biggest concentration of Sydney homes under $650,000. Sydney’s second CBD is the best location to start looking for a first home. Analysis of real estate listings revealed Parramatta is the Sydney region with the highest concentration of properties first home buyers can purchase with government benefits. More than half the properties for sale are priced at less than $650,000, allowing first home buyers to get a state government exemption on paying stamp duty, the realestate.com.au research showed. Parramatta also has one of Sydney’s biggest concentrations of properties priced under $700,000 – the threshold for accessing the First Home Buyer Loan Deposit scheme launched earlier this year.

NSW: High Profile companies striking deals in Parramatta Office market

High-profile property companies, the Roberts family-backed RF CorVal and Melbourne-based Grocon, have struck fresh deals in the western Sydney hub of Parramatta where billions of new developments are in the pipeline. The area’s rapid growth has already attracted tycoon Lang Walker, who is undertaking the $3.2 billion Parramatta Square precinct, and a host of other majors including Charter Hall, Dexus, Mirvac and GPT, as well as private players. In a deal struck just before year end, Terraform Capital on behalf of Longbow Enterprises sold a part interest in 110 George St, Parramatta in an off-market transaction. The stake in the building, known as the Octagon, was snapped up by RF CorVal, which bought the stake for its new Value Active Fund 2. While pricing was undisclosed, the entire complex is worth more than $150 million. The purchase will provide a longer-term development opportunity with holding income. Terraform and RF CorVal will jointly manage the property, with a repositioning likely in future.

Speculations are that RBA will cut their official interest rate to 0.5% in March

Odds have shortened that RBA will cut their official interest rate to 0.5% at their March meeting next week. Although last year having signalled its intention to continue to ease monetary policy this year, the RBA held off a further interest rate cut at its first meeting in February because of stronger housing markets. “A further reduction in interest rates could also encourage additional borrowing at a time when there was already a strong upswing in the housing market,” the RBA minutes said. But things have changed since then. Recently labour market data has deteriorated with unemployment rising again and wages growth still low and stagnant. The RBA has indicated that the labour market is the main game for monetary policy considerations. It wants to lower the unemployment rate so wages rise, but the most recent figures show the equal highest jobless rate at 5.3% since May 2018.

Not all rent across Sydney is falling, in the eastern suburbs it remains strong

Although Sydney rental prices continue to hold strong in the eastern and central coast suburbs there’s an undersupply of houses nationwide and clearance rates remain high. Sydney rental update Sydney rents are falling, they have dropped by 2.9% over the past 12 months. For renters, it is no doubt a relief in a city that is so expensive. High levels of building and enthusiastic investors during the peak of the market are the two main drivers of this decline. Like prices, we are seeing quite different conditions in western Sydney compared to more expensive locations close to the city. The median rent for a house in the eastern suburbs may be well over $1,000 per week but prices are holding steady. At the other end of the scale, rents for units in south-west Sydney have dropped by 4%. One area that is doing well and is relatively affordable, is the central coast. Rents are holding steady and we are seeing relatively high levels of demand, so we can expect rents to remain steady. Recently, The Economist looked at how much home building has been taking place globally using a measure of homes built per 1,000 people. Their analysis showed that globally, not enough homes are being built and it’s contributing to a range of problems including affordability and homelessness. In Australia, we see marked differences between states as to how good they have been keeping up with population growth. Unsurprisingly, TAS and NSW have been consistently undersupplying housing for decades. Right now, it is showing up in affordability issues in Sydney. In Hobart, we have a rental crisis that is leading to a blow out in rental levels and higher levels of homelessness. Looking at the past 35 years, Sydney hasn’t always seen low levels of building. Between 2015 and 2019, it roughly tracked the Australian average. A similarly high level of building took place between 1995 and 1999. However, Hobart has been under building more dwellings since the mid 1990s. Details inside: x Property Market Update: Sydney rent isn't dropping...
