“ZONE” UNDERWOOD, QLD – UPDATE
Overnight on Tuesday, 23 August 2022, one of the buildings at Zone Underwood was severely impacted by fire. The fire commenced in the Officeworks tenancy and appears to have been deliberately lit. Police have declared the site a crime scene. The extent of the damage is currently being assessed. CPDF’s insurers have been notified. The complex is insured for fire, building replacement and loss of rent, and we do not anticipate there being any material financial loss to investors as a result of this event.

DEVELOPMENT PROPERTIES UPDATE
Across the portfolio, we have development properties at all stages of their life-cycle – in planning, with local Councils or the NSW Dept. of Planning for approval, under construction and selling. It’s fair to say the “heat” has gone out of development activities over the last couple of months, with a blowout in Council approval timeframes (largely flood-related), rising construction costs and a noticeable slowdown in the rate of sale. That said, we’re seeing anecdotal
evidence of signs of improvement, and anticipate some “normality” returning to the land development sector during 2023. Here’s a summary of the Fund’s development sites:
“Epiq” Lennox Head, NSW
“Epiq” Lennox Head is currently in Stages 4, 5 and 7 of its anticipated development, specifically:
- Stage 4: Sold and settled 35 lots; 14 lots to be constructed and sold
- Super Lot 5: State planning
- Stage 7: Released for sale in May 2022; construction complete
“Yamba Quays”, Yamba NSW
The development is in various stages:
- Stage 1: Sold
- Stage 2: First release sold
- Stage 3: Construction commenced mid-2022
- Stage 4 & 5: In design
The Fund recently purchased an adjacent lot to Yamba Quay’s existing 21.75ha, bringing the total area to 31.7ha. Master planning for this new site has commenced.
