We have finished up with a LMR2 site in Wynnum, Brisbane that we need to do something with. Starting right at square one with this and would appreciate your thoughts on how we can proceed. The property we now have is : a) 405m2 LMR block with a duplex on it (no heritage overlay)- currently both leased out. b) 810m2 double block - empty land (behind us) and small heritage overlay house on other. Blocks are flat and only 200m from the foreshore. Rest of street is heritage overlay - except our neighbour behind the block with the house on it. Before buying the double block we got a town planner report that indicated no problems with a 2 storey development (within code) or possible 3 storey (council application). The things we have to consider now are : 1) Try to buy neighbour to get a nice square block (may not even be possible). 2) Try to get permission to demolish the small heritage overlay house (or turn it in to units). 3) Demolish or retain the existing duplex (also possible to raise and put two units underneath). 4) Two storey under code or application for three storey. 5) When and what to sell (to manage the risk exposure). Of course a clear plan before purchasing the sites would have been better - but we acted quickly on an opportunity. Selling each of the blocks off would also produce a small profit. Who do we talk with to make a decision on how to maximize the site ? The town planner can tell us the build space and height under different scenarios but then recommends and architect to design what could then be built within that space. It seems that only then can we do the feasibility - which is what we need to examine the options. Simplest it to keep house and duplex but make them part of the development and then build whatever units we can in the available remaining land. Any thoughts or input would be appreciated.
