We own a house in the Inner West (relevant council is Marrickville Council) which we would like to knock down and develop into a small block of apartments. We have made some preliminary enquiries of the council as to zoning and what can be put onto our property. We would like to take the next step and speak with some professionals who can guide us in this area as we are new to developing. We are reading as much as we can on this forum, which is fantastic btw. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding architects and builders familiar with this area? For a first time developer, is it best to have a project manager to guide us or can the architect or builder take on this role? Many thanks in advance.
