An 18-storey, DA-approved, 160-apartment site in the heart of Blacktown has been listed for joint venture or sale. The development, by Austcorp Property Group, is known as First on First – a reference to its First Avenue address – 2-6 First Avenue. The sale/joint venture process is being handled by CBRE and Matrix Property Group. First on First features three street frontages and is next to Blacktown Station and close to Westpoint Shopping Mall and Blacktown Hospital.
First On First comes to market after the sale of a Blacktown Council site next door for more than $22 million. The site was sold with a 12-month deferred settlement, and featured a yet to be approved design concept for a circa-200 apartment project plus commercial.

The fund, available only to wholesale and private high net worth investors, opened on 1 November and was seeking to raise c. $38 million. CPG closed the fund less than two weeks later, well before the official close date, due to oversubscription.
