Deague Family to Sell Petrol Station Turned Development Site, Prahran

The site is being sold with a permit for a 69-unit apartment complex with ground floor shops, and has price expectations of around $4.5 million.

CB Richard Ellis director Mark Wizel and Scott Orchard are marketing the Prahran site for the Deagues.

The family’s development company, Asian Pacific Building Corporation, is responsible for several office, hotel residential projects around town.

One of its highest profile assets is the Kings Business Park in South Melbourne, which the group withdraw from sale last October and despite an offer of $119 million.
