We advised a Mirvac and VIP joint venture on the development of the Woodlea project

Maddocks works with developers on all aspects of industrial, residential and commercial projects.

We advised a Mirvac and VIP joint venture on the development of the Woodlea project in Rockbank, Victoria. Woodlea is a 7,000 lot master planned mixed-use community with a project life of more than 15 years. It was Australia’s fastest selling master planned community in the December 2015 quarter.

We advised on all project matters, including establishment of a display village of more than 40 builder lots, preparing all master sale documentation for residential sales for the first precinct of 1000 lots, undertaking volume conveyancing for those residential lots, and providing advice on a complex compulsory acquisition claim in respect of the Outer Metropolitan Ring Road.

We also provided advice on complex Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution management issues, drafting and finalising a complex section 173 agreement in respect of development infrastructure and community infrastructure levies and credits, advising on the sale of sites to schools and the leasing of the first shopping facilities including a café and pharmacy.

We are also advising OSK, a Malaysian-listed developer, on the major mixed-use development at 93-119 Kavanagh St, Southbank. The development, Melbourne Square, is anticipated to include six towers, several thousand apartments, a large retail precinct and a major new public open space for Southbank.

Maddocks has advised the client on a range of issues, including on staging and delivery, preparation of the master off-the-plan contract and ancillary documents and other general advice.
