04 NEWS SATURDAY MARCH 26 2016 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 A unique and exciting opportunity exists to design, build, operate and maintain a range of facilities to improve the delivery of health services, access for patients, visitors and employees and the amenity of the Royal Darwin Hospital campus. The NT Government is seeking expressions of interest for the construction of the following infrastructure on the campus with an optimal mix of ongoing service delivery: n a cognitive care facility n a multi-deck car park n on-site residential accommodation n other appropriate commercial opportunities that support and complement the primary use of the site as the Territorys main tertiary hospital To register your interest and obtain further information go to: dcm.nt.gov.au/rdh_redevelopment Expressions of Interest for redevelopment of infrastructure Royal Darwin Hospital Redevelopment Territory loses out on luring NAIF HQ CAIRNS has been named as the headquarters for the $5 billion Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund, ahead of the true capital of the north Darwin, the Coalition Government announced this week. Junior Minister for Northern Australia Matt Canavan, who met with Darwin stakeholders earlier this month about the fund, said placing the headquarters in Cairns was all about regional development. Its great that were bringing the kind of expertise and skills to a place like Cairns, he told ABC radio He added Cairns connectivity to Asian markets and domestic capitals was a key consideration. Our facility is going to be very much focused on attracting private investment from here, but also from overseas, he said. Chief Minister Adam Giles said the NT, home to the Office of Northern Australia, hoped money from the fund would come into the Territory. We want the money here for the investment, not just the bureaucracy to process the loans, he said. But Labor candidate for Solomon, Luke Gosling, said the office would have been better situated here to ensure no funding opportunities are lost. With the NAIF going to Queensland I am concerned that this may indicate where the bulk of the financial support for developing the North may go, he said. NAIF loans will be available to finance major economic projects such as airports, roads, ports, rail, energy, water and communications all things that could be done by local businesses, Mr Canavan said while in Darwin this month.

In the past three weeks, three such proprieties have sold, and all were NT News real estate guide cover properties. Paul Heron, from Belle Property Darwin, sold a renovated C19 at 7 Kingston Place, Rapid Creek, at auction for $935,000. In the higher end of the market, anything that is unique and offers architectural design, location and a goodsized block will create interest, he said. In Kingston Place, we had a bit of a perfect storm. The property sold for a good, solid price where the vendor was happy and the buyer was happy. Also in Rapid Creek, Karl Secondis, from One Real Estate, had an open-plan block home sell under the hammer for $930,000. We expected the property would generate good interest as its a unique home for that area, he said. We ended up with a very strong crowd on auction day and three people actively bidding, with bidding starting of $905,000 $5000 over the guide price. Mr Secondis said buyers in the upper section of the market were looking for properties that were ready to go. They dont want to go through the heartache of renovating bathrooms and kitchens and adding extensions, he said. In Wagaman, David Oliver from Elders Real Estate sold an immaculate elevated home for an undisclosed amount. Mr Oliver said the property was passed in at auction last Saturday but sold to the highest bidder later that day. The vendors were extremely happy with the outcome as was the purchaser, he said. Mr Oliver said they had a good response to the property from buyers and about 40 people attended the auction. It was a great result in the end, he said.
