Body Corporate Fees: Hallmarc Body Corporate http://www.hallmarc.com.au/

Compared to many other body corporates in the local area, the fees for The Sinclair apartments are fairly low. This is because there is a lift for the building, but no extra amenities such as pools or gyms.

Facilities: Lift.

There is also the tramline into the city on Elizabeth Street and along Victoria Parade, and the property is located very close to the Victoria Market.. It is only a couple of blocks away from Erroll Street with its supermarket as well as the local cafes.

Demographics: Since original settlement, we have seen the slow but steady shift of higher occupancy rates by owners. The demographic is mostly single young professional.

Year of Build: March 2005

Architects: Buckerfield Architects


Number of Apartments in Block: Approximately 45

Construction Nearby Underway: 18 Wreckyn Street, Leedon – a mixture of residential and commercial downstairs. Being built by Metacorp. One bedrooms through to two bedrooms plus study townhouses.


Forecast for the 09-10 Financial Year: We envisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in North Melbourne for the remainder of 2009. Dependant on bank interest rates, we could experience a flattening of the market in 2010 in the plus $500,000 sector. Mum and Dad investors could well make a comeback in 2010 once first home owners lose their puff and buying power. 33 Wreckyn Street offers a unique buying opportunity in an undervalued blue chip neighbourhood which should cushion it from too many market fluctuations.
