This bad boy is being built down the road from me. From the waters edge it looks insane!

He has some wicked cars and I think he races the Radicals as well

I noticed the caption with the picture said

What house? :confused:

Sounds impressive though.

For those with cash to invest, what sort of costs are involved in subdivision? This property is on the market for $2.5m and I've done some drawings working it out and you could easily get 15x 330m2 blocks @ $260-300k. Meaning $3.9-$4.5m return. Of course you would need to add a road etc, but surely there's profit to be had?

You'd want to run the idea past council before you get too far advanced.  And go in with someone with experience - land dev has plenty of pitfalls for the uninitiated.  Here's one...

Costs include the road as you mentioned which also includes curbing, storm water, servicing the allotments (gas, water, phone etc), would need to check loading as transformers can be a big cost. Additional site works could be required but impossible to tell without seeing the site.

How much space have you allowed for turning circles, etc? As its a main road cars need to be able to exit straight onto the road. Visitor car parking too.

Not to forget the big one holding costs; plus you would struggle to find a bank who would give a decent lvr with that many allotments.
