DTZ Senior Director and Head of Agency Victoria Richard O’Callaghan said the estate was expected to attract interest over $8.5 million.
“This release is a once-in-a-lifetime offering,” he said.
“Stamford Park represents an opportunity to create a whole new living space in Australia’s next biggest city."DTX Director Capital Markets Patrick O'Callaghan said: “We are anticipating strong interest from both local and overseas investors for this opportunity, located in one of Melbourne’s real growth corridors.”
The 6.3 hectare site is zoned ‘General Residential Zone’ and offers a master planned medium density development with a minimum of 151 dwellings including a proposed four-storey apartment complex and partial below ground parking included in the estate.
