It is quite obvious they will use those apartments as investments.He said despite the overwhelming attention from overseas buyers it would be mostly Australians looking for a slice of paradise.“Out of the 511 units I would be very surprised if 65 per cent didn’t sell to the domestic Australian market,” Mr Wilson said.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North9 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day agoLucas Wilson (R) Jewel Sales and Marketing Director pictured at the Jewel site. Photo: Steve HollandSotheby’s Managing Director Patrick Pancur said the international sales pitch to sell the Jewel project into markets including New Zealand, India, Japan, Taiwan and the Middle East, came off the back of data-based research.“New Zealand is the first stop because of its neighbouring location and we have received a very high amount of interest from New Zealand owner occupiers,” he said.“The New Zealand economy is also doing well and these buyers won’t need FIRB approval, which adds to the interest we are getting from them.“There is such a huge shift in the market from downsizes and investors to owner occupiers and people who want to buy a luxury property to keep.The development is well into construction ahead of its expected completion in 2019.At the Corner Wharf St, and Old Burleigh Rd, Jewel’s three-tower project is slowly emerging from the sand with five cranes working on the site.Buyers will fork out $675,000 for one bedroom apartments and prices for two-bedroom apartments start from $1.434 million.last_img read more

Green picks up first Cotton Bowl IMCA Modified win

Posted on

first_imgBy J.M. HallasPAIGE, Texas (March 18) – Kevin Green took top honors in Saturday’s IMCA Modified main dedicat­ing his first Cotton Bowl win to Harvey Cox, a long-time supporter of the Green family rac­ing.Green got the lead coming off turn two, then went green to checkers using two different lines on each end to put some distance on Eric Tomlinson at the finish.“Mission accomplished,” exclaimed Green afterwards. “This was one mission I had this year, to get a Modified win here. We’ve run some here in the Modified and the SportMod, but never a full season. We even had a few SportMod wins, but this is our first Modified win.”“We lost Harvey Cox over the off season, but we’re still racing for him,” Green continued. “He’d done so much for us over the years with my dad. He’ll not be forgotten.”Mike Wagner was the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod winner while Ken Plon­sky capitalized on a late restart to top the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature.last_img read more

8000 tickets missing ahead of 2014 World Cup

Posted on

first_imgSome 8,000 tickets supposedly issued to a number of the supporters unions for the recent 2014 World Cup qualifier between Ghana and the Sudan in Kumasi cannot be accounted for, Graphic Sports has gathered.As a result, pressure is mounting on officials of the National Sports Authority (NSA) to cough out GH¢40,000 being the net value of the tickets, each of which had a face value of GH¢5.The Black Stars beat their Sudanese counterparts 4-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium in March, but accounting for those 8,000 tickets has triggered a disquiet within the corridors of the Sports Authority, Graphic Sports understands.The Authority has plunged into this quagmire following claims that the ‘Green Area’ at the stadium which contained about 8,000 spectators was given out to the supporter unions free of charge. Yet there are no documents to support that claim, sources have hinted Graphic Sports.At least, officials of the Die Hard Supporters Union have told Graphic Sports that they entered the stadium free of charge and without tickets, too. But the whereabouts of those tickets remain a mystery that auditors are struggling to unravel, the sources said.The officials of the Die Hard Supporters Union, indeed, stated in interviews with Graphic Sports that they did not receive any ticket for the match but instead the NSA granted over 200 members of the group free entry using a designated gate. “We were not given tickets, but rather Die Hard Supporters, numbering over 200, were allowed to enter the stadium free by the National Sports Authority. In the previous Black Stars match we were offered tickets but we turned them down because we didin’t like the seats alloted for us, so we bought our own ticket,” said Abraham Nkansah, President of Die Hard Supporters Union.Information pieced together by the Graphic Sports indicate that the development had pressed the panic button as officials of the Sports Authority are still struggling to reconcile the figures with the number of tickets issued out.Though it has been over two months since the game was played, the source stated that they are unable to produce a report on the match as directed by the Ministry.When this paper contacted Saka Acquaye, Ashanti Regional Sports Development Officer on the issue, he said he could not speak on the matter and deferred it to another officer who was unable to provide any reasonable answer.The acting Director General of the NSA, Ms Alice Attipoe, who said she was on her way out of town when Graphic Sports contacted her yesterday said she was unaware of the issue and could discuss the matter when she returned.last_img read more

Wellington Police Department to crack down on drunk and dangerous driving through Labor Day

Posted on

first_imgSubmitted to Sumner Newscow — Be warned that during the period, August 20 through Labor Day, Sept. 7, the Wellington Police Department will join almost 150 other local and state police agencies across the state in a crackdown aimed at removing drunk, drugged, and other dangerous drivers from the roadways. Known as “You Drink. You Drive. You Lose.”, the enforcement is underwritten by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.Kansas averages four injured every day, and one person killed every three days, in impairment-related crashes.  According to KDOT, if you are involved in such a crash – in any capacity – you are about two times more likely to be injured and nearly six times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than if you are involved in a crash in which alcohol or other drugs are not determined to be a factor.  The ratio of death to injury in impairment-related crashes is almost seven times higher than the death to injury ratio for non-impairment related crashes.Wellington Police Chief Tracy Heath, through the campaign, wishes to remind drivers of several things:“First, if you’re going to drink while away from home, do it responsibly by planning ahead and lining up someone who is not going to be drinking to get you back. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until it’s time to go home to start asking around. Chances are, if you do that, you will wind up with someone who says, ‘Sure, I’m sober!’ but who may not be.“Second, picture families you know, and then consider how it would be to wake up every day to the memory of your decision to drive after drinking – a decision which unintentionally brought injury or death to one of them.“Third, we can pull you over for any number of driving infractions and mechanical deficiencies. If we do and we detect a hint of alcohol you will be tested. If you fail the test you’re looking at a fine of $500-$2,500; up to one year in jail; the suspension, or even permanent loss, of your driver’s license; and the installation of an ignition interlock device in your car. Imagine not being able to start your car without blowing into the interlock’s alcohol sensor several times during an afternoon’s errands. Don’t take the chance; it’s not worth it.“Fourth, we need everyone to be our eyes on the road. If you see suspicious driving behaviors take note of location, direction and the vehicle’s description, and call 911 as soon as it’s safe to do so. You may save a life.“Fifth, you can count on this department to vigorously enforce impaired driving laws – not just during this campaign, but all year long.“Finally, always remember that the best protection against a drunk driver (even when it’s yourself) is the use of seat belts and appropriate child restraints – every trip, every time. They save lives and reduce injury severity.last_img read more
