A site with plans for a luxury retail and residential project has been listed with price expectations from $90 million in blue-ribbon Double Bay.

CBRE is selling the property in conjunction with 1st City Real Estate Group, on behalf of Tri-Anta Pty Ltd.

CBRE’s Scott Gray-Spencer said the target market for the proposed development project is high to very high net-worth apartment buyers.

“Primarily wealthy local professionals or business owners; mature aged ‘down-sizers’ and out-of-Sydney national and international purchasers requiring an up-market Sydney residence,” Gray-Spencer said.

“This buyer group has proved to be the most resilient across the Australian residential market, having a low to zero dependence upon bank funding.”

The family behind Tri-Anta Pty Ltd, are long-time owners of the Double Bay holding.
