New Apple Store Broadway - Population Growth adds to Demand

What else is going on around Broadway..,,,,
Was this done because of the Central Park Development. http://www.centralparksydney.com/

With 11 buildings, around 2,000 apartments.
Across Road Broadway 1 bedrooms. 7 story of 2 bedders 
and 1 bedders. 


Also down the road from Broadway Shopping Centre .

153 new social
Housing NSW is planning for the creation of approximately 
housing dwellings, approximately 
250 new privately-owned dwellings, and approximately
83 new affordable housing dwellings. The affordable housing will contribute to Council’stargets, and to the shortage of such housing in the City of Sydney Local Government

Mirvac has lodged a DA for a concept plan of the layout of all buildings and roads, two for the construction of particular buildings and a fourth for remediation and infrastructure works.
Provide land for the construction of around 50 affordable housing units; and
It could be quite a lot. The City of Sydney Council in February this year set guidelines for the development which allows developer Mirvac to build 
1250 homes.


Also down the road .


1-3 MACARTHUR STREET ULTIMO - INTERNATIONAL GRAMMAR SCHOOL construction of a 4 storey educational building.
BIG WORD HERE INTERNATIONAL that means they need places to live.


Where is this location that has hugh demand. ULTIMO and GLEBE....


What industry has found this information and decided we need to be there.


Apple 
Apple only develop stores in high growth and demand areas. 
(http://www.ifoapplestore.com/stores/chronology.html).

These are the areas we like to buy property in.

HIGH DEMAND and HIGH POPULATION GROWTH.
This means that property prices get high rent , but also get Capital Growth

Look at every apple store and see if this area is good to buy and make money in Real Estate.


Apple’s seventh “Apple Store” in “Sydney’ is to open this Saturday in the near-CBD location of Broadway, and while this presumably means Apple’s flagship store on the corner of George and King Sts is still the flagship, Apple can now cater ever better to all those in the CBD and surrounds wanting and needing its products and services.



Apple’s seventh “Sydney” store is opening in Broadway this Saturday, from 10am, with Broadway being in between the Sydney CBD and the inner-city suburbs of Glebe and Ultimo, home to a massive uni student population, Chinatown popular, CBD population and inner-west/inner-city population. 
http://www.itwire.com/your-it-news/home-it/55419-it’s-official-new-sydney-broadway-apple-store-opening-sat-10am

The store joins those other “Sydney” stores in George St, Chatswood, Bondi Junction, Hornsby, Castle Hill and Penrith, with the other NSW store being Charlestown near Newcastle.

Gizmodo had news of Siri divulging the “secret” of Apple’s new Broadway store yesterday, with a reader informing the site of Siri’s secret-spilling.

Apple’s own site now confirms the store opening, which you can see here.

The store address is “Shop 305-307 Broadway Shopping Centre, Broadway NSW 2007”, with the phone number listed as “02 8035 4000”.

Dubbo possible Rare Earth Demand raised by Chinese Government.


"if you are getting blog via email click above heading for missing pictures and video"  


Dubbo possible Rare Earth Demand raised by Chinese Government.
1 billion dollar Plan on Dubbo project...


Strategic significance of the DZP heavy rare earth production


watch this video first : 
click link below
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-06-26/chalmers-joins-the-business/4094582?section=business
The Chinese government released a White Paper on 20 June 2012 assessing the current state of development of its rare earths industry and confirming its intention to implement sustainable development for the industry.

The paper affirms the increasing scarcity of rare earths, particularly the heavy rare earths, which is relevant as Alkane proceeds towards development of its Dubbo zirconium, niobium and rare earth project, and the strategic value of that production which is anticipated by end 2014.

Ian Chalmers, managing director, told Proactive Investors today that the company is talking to strategic Chinese partners with existing HREE separation facilities. "When separated Alkane can derive a much higher yield compared to a concentrate product."

A deal with a Chinese partner should be completed in around a month.

Chalmers added that Alkane has already secured offtake partners for all of the zirconium and niobium - and with first production forecast for the end of 2014 - Alkane will be supplying nearly 10% of the world's zirconium.

Alkane Resources (ASX: ALK, OTCQX: ANLKY) has delivered the enticing potential of a resource expansion at the Dubbo Zirconia Project - which already has a world class resource of zirconium, hafnium, niobium, tantalum, yttrium and rare earths.

Additional drilling will need to continue before a resource can be defined, but highlighting the upside an exploration target of 40 million tonnes has been identified.

The rare earth distribution at Railway is about 30% heavy rare earths and 70% light
rare earths, slightly higher than Toongi which has a 25% / 75% distribution.

Where the story gets really interesting for Alkane is that the reserves will support an initial 36 year open pit life at 1 million tonnes per annum production - and the additional potential from Railway could add to the already long life Toongi
resource/reserve base.


If you are interested in DUBBO and what was and is happening there, its worth looking at this video..
Yes it was done in 2010 but still shows a great map of developments and what dubbo has in the ground.

Great Property Law Website.....simple english....too




Great Property Law Website.....simple english....too

Who are they
http://www.muellers.com.au


Mullens have a great website explaining in plain english , all types of property Law.
They also specialise in servicing the strata industry.
They have excellent Seminar Papers on located at this link:

They also heavily concentrate on STRATA Laws so if you are in a strata or a manager you need to subscribe to their news letter here http://www.muellers.com.au/Home/tabid/38/Default.aspx


I really enjoyed reading the articles below:
1. Disputes between neighbours
Here they talk about  the law relating to some of the most common and challenging types of neighbourhood disputes that affect owners corporations and strata managers.


It explains the 88k 

The NSW Parliament recognised that people may require access to neighbouring land for various purposes including to permit construction work to be carried out on their land. Therefore, in 1996 the Parliament introduced section 88K into the Conveyancing Act 1919 by the Property Legislation Amendment (Easements) Act 1995. The focus of section 88K is on the problem of a lack of access to neighbouring land in closely settled areas for building activities on adjoining land, although it has wider application than merely in that situation: Bloom.

and even better the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 2000

Access to Neighbouring Land Act 2000

On 1 January 2001 the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 2000 (“Access Act”) commenced.
This Act provides a means for a person carrying out work on his or her own land (or a person carrying out work on their behalf, such as a builder), but who requires access to adjoining or adjacent land to carry out that work, to apply to the local court for a neighbouring land access order: section 7.
An access order may be made in a number of circumstances including to permit work such as the construction, repair, maintenance, improvement, decoration, alteration, adjustment, renewal or demolition of buildings and other structures; inspections to ascertain if such work is required; and making plans in connection with such work: section 12.

Why keep an eye on Budaberg, large Growth expected.


"if you are getting blog via email click above heading for missing pictures and video"  


Why keep an eye on Bundaberg, there is coal in those hills....


I have been getting reports for a while on future prospects for Queensland. For a long the now people have been worried about investments especially in this region.
But Bundaberg is on the move. 


I blogged about Masters store and now this latest news backed by Hancock is looking good. http://www.iloveproperty.net/2012/01/bundaberg-fight-over-new-masters-store.html


First off "the resources", people always ask me where do I get all my information, so 
this time I will elaborate a little bit. 




Below information comes from Proactive Investors which is a market leader in the investment news space, providing ASX “Small and Mid-cap” company news, research reports, StockTube videos and One2One Investor Forums.







Also NewsMail reports 

"A COAL exploration company will begin the drilling of coal seams around Avondale to examine the future viability of establishing mining operations in the region."
Where is Avondale.
Managing director David Round said the company's Bundaberg Project had been made a priority with an exploration target of 350 million tonnes of coking coal.
"It's quite a large tenement and obviously there are many factors we need to work through, including environmental concerns and the wishes of landowners," he said.
The initial drilling project, expected to cost up to $2 million, will take up to six months and include about 20 holes.
International Coal has also made a mining application with the Queensland Department of Mines and Energy for an additional parcel of land around Avondale and Yandaran, about 900sq km in size.



Bundaberg Regional Council Division 3 councillor Wayne Honor said International Coal was one of several companies to have coal exploration interests in his division.
He said the potential economic benefits of mining projects needed to be balanced with the need to protect underground aquifers and care for the environment

Cr Honor said he would be opposed to any underground coal gasification projects because of the region's proximity to a large water aquifer.

"The Bundaberg Water Aquifer sits very close to Avondale and supplies about half of the water to Bundaberg City," he said.
"We certainly would not want to do anything that could affect health of our residents or the health of our agricultural industry which underpins our local economy."
He said well-managed, environmentally conscious open-cut mining projects had the potential to employ new generations of Bundaberg residents and bolster the region's business landscape.
"It would be an absolute boom for the local economy and for the job prospects of our region," he said.


International Coal's website reports:


International Coals’ Bundaberg Project are located in a well known and highly prospective region, adjacent to a number of well established Coking Coal explorers and producers.
The recently produced Moultrie Group report stated that EPC’s 2194 and 2196 are -
Potential for Coking Coal discovery and contain two target exploration coal-bearing units:
  • Burrum Coal Measures
  • Maryborough Formation
The principal target is Cretaceous hard Coking Coals and several exploration targets have been determined with an Exploration Target (ranked highly prospective) of 280 Mt – 370 Mt
Near neighbours include Northern Energy, Guildford Coal, Cliff Resources and Hancock Coal.

The Bundaberg Project already has a small JORC Resource of around 1.5 million tonnes, 
however the exploration target is 280-370 million tonnes of coking coal.


International Coal’s Bundaberg tenementsThe Bundaberg Project is part of a solidly developing hard coking coal region, which hosts Northern Energy’s (ASX: NEC)proposed 105 million tonne Colton Mine 45 kilometres to the south of the project.  Bundaberg also lies adjacent to Guildford Coal’s (ASX: GUF) exploration permit EPC 1872 where current exploration is being undertaken. Other near neighbours to the project include Cliff Resources and Hancock Coal.


Bundaberg has shown the potential for large tonnages of thermal and coking coal over two exploration coal-bearing targets – the Burrum Coal Measures and the Maryborough Formation. 


International Coal snares Hancock Prospecting as JV partner

Thursday, June 21, 2012 by Proactive Investors
This is a significant milestone for International Coal, securing a farm-in and JV partner of the ilk of Hancock Prospecting to intensify exploration efforts at the Bundaberg coking coal project. This is a significant milestone for International Coal, securing a farm-in and JV partner of the ilk of Hancock Prospecting to intensify exploration efforts at the Bundaberg coking coal project.
International Coal (ASX: ICX) has entered into a farm-in and joint venture agreement with Queensland Coal Investments, a wholly owned subsidiary of mining heavyweight Hancock Prospecting, which can earn up to a 51% interest in the Bundaberg coking coal project.

Queensland Coal Investments can earn an initial 25% interest through the staged development and expenditure of A$1.5 million and a further 26% through the expenditure of an additional $1.5 million.

In addition to the earn-in payments, Queensland Coal Investments must also pay International Coal $2 million upon attaining the 51% interest in the project.

Importantly, this provides International Coal with required exploration funding to advance the project. 
Hugh Dai, executive director, told Proactive Investors today the deal represented a recognition of the value of International Coal’s Bundaberg tenements by Queensland Coal Investments.

“For this deal you can see they can earn 51% for $5 million, and the tenements you are probably talking about $9 or $10 million in value.

“Secondly it adds credibility to our company and our project.”

The Bundaberg Project is part of a solidly developing hard coking coal region, which hosts Northern Energy’s (ASX: NEC)proposed 105 million tonne Colton Mine 45 kilometres to the south of the project.

Bundaberg also lies adjacent to Guildford Coal’s (ASX: GUF) exploration permit EPC 1872 where current exploration is being undertaken. Other near neighbours to the project include Cliff Resources and Hancock Coal.

The Bundaberg Project already has a small JORC Resource of around 1.5 million tonnes, however the exploration target is 280-370 million tonnes of coking coal.

During 2011, International Coal worked closely with the Moultrie group in assessing the prospectivity of the project.

Bundaberg has shown the potential for large tonnages of thermal and coking coal over two exploration coal-bearing targets – the Burrum Coal Measures and the Maryborough Formation.

The primary target is Cretaceous coking coals within the Burrum Coal Measures.

International Coal has completed negotiations with the majority of landowners within the project area and lodged compensation agreements with the Queensland Government.


Analysis

For a company the size of International Coal, with a market cap. of $33 million, this deal is the equivalent of having truly arrived, as well this would appear to underwrite the Company's exploration effort. 
We believe the market, given the risk adverse environment, may have missed the import of the deal in providing a further leg up in the market valuation of International Coal.

VIC Woolworths' Masters home improvement store at Keysborough RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO Bunnings



VIC Woolworths' Masters home improvement store at Keysborough RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO Bunnings







Written by Urbanalyst Staff
   Thursday, 19 May 2011 20:42   


Woolworths' Masters home improvement store at Keysborough gets the go-ahead
In the News - Victoria
PLANNING approval has been granted for the development of a $13 million Woolworths home improvement store at Keysborough, Planning Minister Matthew Guy announced today.

The home improvement store will be located at the corner of Springvale and Cheltenham Roads in Keysborough and is expected for provide employment opportunities for more than 150 staff.

The approval of the amendment to the Greater Dandenong Planning Scheme modifies the schedule to the mixed-use zone that applies to the site. It does not increase the overall floor area for the site, but redistributes the approved overall floor space between Restricted Retail and Trade supplies land uses.

"This revision, while procedural in nature, demonstrates the Victorian Coalition Government is committed to improving the planning system by ensuring a coordinated and streamlined process which supports increased competition in the retail sector," Mr Guy said.

Woolworths' home improvement stores, a joint venture with U.S. retailer Lowes, will be branded 'Masters'.  The first store will open later this year at Braybrook in Melbourne with a 13,500 square-metre outlet.

Following the opening of the Braybrook store, a number of stores will open in Victoria and Queensland, with an aim to secure 150 property sites within 5 years.
