SYDNEY, PERTH and now Brisbane.

Roxy-Pacific Holdings, a Singapore boutique property developer, has just landed its third property deal in a third city of Australia. Since last year, it has intensified its overseas investments to counter the continued sluggishness of the Singapore property market.

A joint venture, which Roxy-Pacific has a 40% interest in, has agreed this week to buy two plots of freehold land of 2,571 square metres in aggregate in Brisbane for AUD 33,620,000.

The vendor has obtained development approval to develop two residential buildings comprising an aggregate of 432 dwelling units with shops, restaurants and offices on the ground level.

The properties -- located near to each other on 64 Peel Street and 9 Cordelia Street -- are within 2 km of Brisbane's CBD and within walking distance of the South Brisbane train station, the bustling cultural and entertainment district of South Brisbane and South Bank.
