    A development up here (Darwin) of a 92 Unit complex has decided to pull the Pin. They had already dug the hole, concreted it and built the first level.

    They're now going to demolish it and fill it in at huge cost. :S

    “Sunbuild has been unable to finalise finance for the development over the past few months due to low pre-sales and the current Darwin property market".

    Yeah that'll do it.

    interesting that they had gone so far as to start site works and concreting without finance in place, and low pre-sales.

    Sometime you wonder about the risk assesment and feasibility of developers and 'large' developments/developers arent immune to confirmation bias.

    That huge cost presumably less than the losses that would happen if they actually built the whole thing.
    Scary

    Didn't read article but if that was the case at least they had the smarts to cut their losses

    Does not sound too good, but is prob happening elsewhere too. But maybe without in advanced stages of foundations etc...
