Park Avenue complex, Balmain

The Park Avenue complex comprises six luxury townhouses, two apartments and two villas located at 140-148 Beattie Street Balmain NSW. The owner acquired the site in late 2005 and undertook preliminary works on site in early 2006 - submitting a s96 application in parallel. Planning approval for the s96 application was granted in 2007 and work re-commenced on site, however the project was again delayed due to a number of factors including issues with remediation and sewer/stormwater infrastructure. Christiana Capital was appointed Project Manager in April 2008. Documentation was prepared to modify the 2006 construction certificate to comply with the 2007 s96 approval and re-commence work on site in November 2008. The owner was subsequently unable to fund development and the project was sold to another development company.

Historical photos

The site was once known as "The Tin Shed Site", with squatters occupying its diverse and ramshackle buildings. An informal local artists' community operated for a time. Photos prior to demolition and excavation are as follows:
