2 late-1980s commercial buildings just down from the K Rd ridge have gained new life as residential conversions at the hands of father & son developers Michael & David Mahoney.
Reconstruction has started on the hexagonal 15 Hopetoun, the former Baycorp House which will be converted into 91 apartments, and the next Mahoney development, 8 Hereford, was launched last night.
Although the configuration was for 119 apartments, one buyer has taken the whole “front” on the top floor – with views to the cbd, harbour bridge and over Freemans Bay – 3 apartments to be combined into a 400m² interior with a 75m² deck.
- Unfortunately this story has to be interrupted – to be continued at the weekend.
