Victoria currently represents six percent of Ryman’s total resident population and remains a focus for future growth.
Construction activity has been taking place across the Nellie Melba, Burwood East, and Aberfeldie sites in metropolitan Melbourne. Construction is continuing in regional sites at Highton and Ocean Grove under safe measures.
In 2019 we reported that Ryman had purchased Steller’s permit-approved site in Highett which now has a project value of $180m.
At this time, the acquisition of the Highett facility brought Ryman’s total number of sites in Melbourne to 11. This number is soon to stand at 16.
Ryman’s Chief Executive, Gordon MacLeod told The Australian Financial Review that, “We’ve got a number of potential irons in the fire…”
He went on to say, “It’s an exciting time for us. With the $2 billion build and development commitment in the state, this is really the start.”
