The Avoca flats are on the market for between $2 and $2.5m.

Most of the apartments have had recent upgrades. The property is pre-war.“This property is pre-war which means you will have to discuss this development option with your town planner for further clarity, however seeing that the streetscape has changed so much over the years there might be a case to completely remove and start over.”Preparations for the lunar new year began on Monday and will run through to next Monday, with Chinese New Year officially kicking off on Tuesday February 5 at the start of the 10-day Spring Festival. The units are not strata titled.In its current condition, the eight flats bring in gross income of $110,000 a year.“These apartments are not strata titled so outgoings are low which keeps the yield high and the future option to strata and sell off individually.”It was zoned for development options of two to three levels. He described the property as a “once in a lifetime opportunity” overlooking prime Newstead sites including Gas Works with double street access for pedestrians apart from the Victoria Terrace entrance.“It’s a great investment, a long term play with amazing city views. I think it’s very saleable,” Mr Kornel told The Courier-Mail.center_img 18 Victoria Terrace, Bowen Hills, has 8 flats, with 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms on an 819sq m block.

That’s a major abundance of good luck with five 8’s and one 9, both numbers considered extremely good luck by Asian buyers, given the first sounds like “fortune” in Chinese and the latter like “longlasting”.Add to that, the fact that the iconic block of flats called Avoca are pink — and 2019 kicks off the lunar Year of the Pig — a pink animal with curved features.

Scholes may go – Robson

first_imgFormer Manchester United captain Bryan Robson fears veteran midfielder Paul Scholes may be forced to retire at the end of the season. The former England midfielder – a year younger than Giggs – retired from the game in May 2011 but reversed his decision within six months. Robson added: “Only he can answer whether or not he may register again in case of emergencies. “But because of his attitude and the way he goes about training it is good to have him around the place.” While 39-year-old team-mate Ryan Giggs has recently penned a one-year deal to extend his Old Trafford career into its 23rd season, Scholes has been hampered by knee issues recently. Robson said: “Giggsy has got another year, but he looks as fit as he was when he was 21. Scholesy I’m not so sure about. He’s been having a few problems with his knee. So I think he might just call it a day.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Liverpool into Club World Cup Final after late win over Monterrey

first_imgRoberto Firmino scored a dramatic injury-time winner – five minutes after coming on as a substitute – to give Liverpool victory over Mexican side Monterrey and book their place in the Club World Cup final.The Brazilian striker, who replaced Divock Origi in the 85th minute, poked in fellow substitute Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross from close range in Doha.Liverpool’s Naby Keita had opened the scoring in the first half after an excellent Mohamed Salah through ball before Rogelio Funes Mori equalised.The Reds will take on Brazil’s Flamengo in Saturday’s final (17:30 GMT kick-off), which will be shown live on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.Manager Jurgen Klopp, who flew to Qatar with the first-team squad while under-23s boss Neil Critchley took charge of the Liverpool’s Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Aston Villa on Tuesday evening, named a makeshift starting XI due to injuries and illness in defence.As a result, Liverpool looked vulnerable at the back and, despite taking the lead early on, could have fallen behind after chances fell to Monterrey’s Dorlan Pabon, Funes Mori and Jesus Gallardo either side of the break.Keita also had more chances to score and was denied twice in the second half by keeper Marcelo Barovero.Funes Mori – the twin brother of former Everton defender Ramiro – shocked Liverpool fans when he pounced on a rebound to equalise three minutes later but the Premier League leaders were persistent, as they have been so often this season.Salah kept the ball in play before teeing up Alexander-Arnold, who slid across behind the defence for Firmino to poke home, meaning Liverpool avoided extra time and a potential upset in Doha.
