Mirvac Group has secured four residential development projects across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane totalling $144.2 million, on mostly delayed settlement terms.

“These acquisitions significantly restock our residential development pipeline and will provide long-term earnings benefits from FY16 onwards," Mirvac's managing director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said.

"They sit within our directional mandate to acquire apartments in the inner ring and masterplanned communities in infill ring locations, and highlight our capacity to source and secure off-market opportunities in key locations."

There was the purchase of an inner ring residential site in Waterloo, with the potential to deliver 250 residential apartments and 1,000 square metres of retail space. It is subject to FIRB approval.

Then inner ring residential site in Brisbane is located in South Brisbane with city and river views. The development has approved planning for a two staged apartment project of 329 lots across two towers, and will comprise one and two bedroom offerings. The project is expected to contribute to earnings from early 2017.

Settlement of the acquisition will occur in two stages, with stage one expected in mid-2014 and stage two expected in mid-2015.

Mirvac has also purchased a property off Raby Road, Catherine Fields, 60 kilometres south-west of Sydney’s CBD within Sydney’s South West Growth Centre region. The 87 hectare site has the potential to deliver up to 600 lots. 

Altona North is the location of the Victorian acquisition. It is an 11.5 hectare infill site in Blackshaws Road, Altona North, with the potential to deliver 260 lots, subject to planning approvals.

Mirvac has appointed Brett Draffen to the newly created position of chief investment officer.

Brett Draffen had previously been the company’s chief executive development and group strategy.
