Van Leishout has apparently been in the market for strategic assets across the retail, residential, office and hospitality sectors. He was reportedly interested in buying the Centro Surfers Paradise centre on the Gold Coast, which had price estimates of about $160 million.
Seahaven was offloaded Melbourne’s Carter Group and the Sydney based Callaghan family. The deal was reported in the AFR.
It is not known what Mr Van Leishout’s company Unison Property Group will do with the asset. It sold with a permit for a $250 million redevelopment that would have split the resort into 20 parts.
