Developer Wins Green Light for Darlinghurst Office


Freehold Capital’s Darlinghurst development has been approved by the City of Sydney.

The project, Crown & Goulburn, signifies the developer’s first non-residential project, which will encompass retail and commercial spaces and deliver 2,350sq m of net lettable area.

The commercial development will sit on a 664sq m site, amalgamated from four individually-owned lots which the developer first started acquiring in July 2017.

The estimated end value of the development is around $60 million with a $12.5 million construction cost.
