New David Devine Enterprise, Metro, Makes Major Melbourne Development Site Purchase

QUEENSLAND-based property developer David Devine is wasting no time getting back into the Melbourne development scene.

Four months since retiring from the listed development giant he established in 1983 – now known as Devine Limited – Mr Devine’s newest incarnation, Metro Property Development, has paid $10.2 million for an eight hectare site in Doreen.

The land, at 60 Orchard Road, on the corner of Garden Road, will be subdivided into about 150 lots and carry an average block price of about $200,000. Assuming homes worth $250,000 are developed on each block, Metro’s Doreen project could have an end value of close to $70 million.
