Caydon Reportedly Behind $16 Million Brunswick Development Site Purchase, Melbourne

LOCAL builder Caydon has purchased another major development site, this time in Brunswick East, and at the suburb border of Carlton North and Fitzroy North.

The Collingwood based developer is understood to have paid about $16 million for a one hectare disused factory at 21 – 27 Brunswick Road, near the corner of Nicholson Street where it is completing another project.

Caydon is reportedly planning to redevelop the old factory site into a $120 million village of apartment towers, shops and offices.
