Rents and apartment prices to face some stiff competition in Teneriffe?
The sky-high rentals and apartment sale prices being charged for apartments in Teneriffe may soon face some stiff competition when the several hundred brand new apartments being built by FKP at its new Gasworks complex combined with those already for sale at Mirvac’s Waterfront complex, both at neighbouring Newstead, come on stream. There are some 600 units and apartments planned for construction in that area.
This may have been the trigger for the formation for the recently formed Teneriffe Apartment Managers Network.
A recently released brochure, Renting in Teneriffe, is available around the area and promotes sales and renting of apartments through the on-site apartment managers listed and includes 19 apartment complexes that are let by on-site managers in Teneriffe. Many of the apartments at Teneriffe are converted Woolstores while others such as Dalgety-Mercantile and Winchcombe-Carson complexes were built around 1994-96.
Perhaps the Teneriffe apartment complex managers have already concluded that they can expect some fierce competition in terms of property prices and rents towards the end of 2012 when the FKP apartments come on stream, which start at $450,000 just a hundred metres down the road from Teneriffe.
Woolworths is set to open a supermarket in the FKP complex, and boutique shops are planned along with office space and the 5 hectare Parklands area. It’s going to be interesting to see if rents and property prices hold up in Teneriffe when these complexes come on stream in late 2012 and early 2013.
