Current Syndicate Open for Investment

HomeCurrent Syndicate Open for Investment


The latest Black Bear Syndicate Project is now open for investment.

Black Bear Syndicates are operated as unregistered wholesale syndicated property trusts which are entirely passive for investors. A special purpose unit trust is established for each syndicate project and investors are issued units in the trust in proportion with their investment (Units). The Oxford Syndicate will be undertaken by the Oxford Residences Unit Trust (Trust). Oxford Street Projects Pty Ltd is the trustee of the Trust (Trust), Black Bear Developments Pty Ltd (Manager) is the manager of the Trust and Guardian Securities Limited (AFSL 240506) is the authorised intermediary of the Trust (Authorised Intermediary). Further information regarding the structure of the syndicate and the nature of the investment is outlined in the Information Memorandum applicable to this project.

Black Bear has extensive experience undertaking its own development projects and projects on behalf of investors. Click here to explore our past projects.

Property Summary

The subject property is located on the corner of Oxford and Jackson Streets, Hamilton (Brisbane). The site is a 708m2, very flat, regular-shaped allotment zoned Low Medium Density Residential (2 or 3 storey mix). The existing house is a high-set, pre-war, Queenslander-style home in original condition (House). The House is subject to the Traditional Building Character Overlay and advice received by the Manager indicates that the House cannot be demolished, but must be retained as part of the Project. The preferred strategy is to relocate the existing House toward the north-east corner of the Property, comprehensively renovate the House and then construct an additional four new townhouses that are finished to a high standard (Townhouses).

The Property is located in the prestigious inner-northern Brisbane suburb of Hamilton. Hamilton is located approximately 7 kilometres north east of the Brisbane CBD and is a highly desirable and established suburb. The Property itself is extremely well located, with most amenities being within walking distance of the Property.

Development Summary

Designs are not yet finalised (and are subject to final approval by Council), but at this stage it is proposed that the House and one Townhouse will face Jackson St and the remaining three Townhouses will face Oxford Street. The Townhouses will be a combination of two and three levels, depending on the final outcome negotiated with Council. The configuration being pursued by the Manager is for the House to be subdivided onto its own lot with the Townhouses to be contained within a second lot and part of a body corporate.

The House is proposed to be stand-alone on a lot of approximately 207m2 with the following features: double garage; large private courtyard; 4 bedrooms (or 3 bedrooms plus second living area); 2.5 bathrooms; upstairs balcony and large private courtyard. It is proposed that each of the Townhouses will have at least 3 bedrooms; a single garage (with visitor space on the driveway); 2.5 bathrooms; and either a large balcony or spacious courtyard. All Townhouses will have their own street frontage and entrance with individual design elements and areas of articulation incorporated into the facade to give each Townhouse an individual feel.
