NORTH SYDNEY LAND VALUES Effect of Harbour Bridge [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 1 October 1930
NORTH SYDNEY LAND VALUES Effect of Harbour Bridge Reserved judgment was given last Thursday in the Land and Valuation Court in the appeal of the estate of the late C. Pitt against a subdivision of land at North Sydney on the site of the proposed Kirribilli ' Station. The land has a frontage of 138 feet to ' BVoughton Street and 104ft. to Fitzroy and Bligh Streets. the Valuer-General s figures were: — Unimproved value, £4160; improved value, £4500; assessed annual value, £225. The owner contended that the figures should be: — 'Unimproved value, £2600; improved value, £'3000; annual value, £150. The question was raised whether the 'prospective' value should be considered. His Honour said the original valuations were made in 1927.' The objector contended that there had been no increase in the values since that year. The Valuer-General, however, sub mitted that there had been an increase owing to the approaching completion of the erection of the Harbour Bridge. It was difficult to ascer...
GALVANISED IRON INDUSTRY Lysaght's Position [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 1 October 1930
my* GALVANISED IRON INDUSTRY Lysaght's Position The announcement by Lysaght's Ltd. that the}' will be compelled to close down their galvanised iron works at Newcastle and throw approximately 900 men out of employment un less a tariff is placed oil galvanised iron that will make it impossible for overseas firms to compete on the Australian- market, at once draws attention to the basis on which the Australian mnlvnnisprl iron inrliistrv 1 ovists It is certainly desirable that the industry should continue as it gives employment to nearly 1000 'ni'cn, but unfortunately their wages are so' high that continuance is only possible by subsidising the firm with bounties. It is apparent that what, is needed-- to rehabilitate the industry i^ not a high tariff but a considerable reduction in the cost of production. If the industry is to .be main tained to give employment to workers, those workers must seriously consider the reduction oft their \wages. By doing this they will enable their firm to...
ERECTION OF GAS HOLDER Action to Demolish [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 1 October 1930
ERECTION OF GAS HOLDER Action to Demolish An interesting decision in regard to the erec tion of a gas holder in Oyster Cove, North - Shore, was delivered by Mr. justice Long Inncs in the Equity Court yesterday. . - ? The case was one in which, the Attorney General, on the information of , Dr,. H. F. j. Norrie of VVollstonecraft,' asked that the Com pany should be ordered to demolish the aras holder or reduce it to a height of 100 feet or alternatively to the height of 150 feet if the., consent of the Minister could be obtained to its remaining at that height. The case was dismissed by justice Long inncs, who stated that it was clear that the structure came within the meaning of the Local Government Act of 1919. and as it was 214 feet high it had been erected in breach of the ordinances which restricted the height to 100 feet. a The building .also came within the meaning of the Height of Public Buildings Act, and the company was not exempt from the operations of thatv Act by the prov...

MORTGAGES [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 1 October 1930
MORTGAGES Lecture by A. S. Henry ; Yesterday at the offices of H.' L. Cross and Company, Mr. A. S. Henry delivered a con tinuation lecture on mortgages to a representa tive gathering of business men. M r, He n ry pointed out that owing to the present, depression, there was a considerable in crease in'' the number of properties being sold under instructions from mortgagees, and the scarcity of money for real estate investments lias naci the effect ot considerably reducing the prices at which such properties can be sold. It might be fairly said that properties under mortgage at the present time on valuations made more than one year ago, can now only be sold at about sixty to eighty per cent, of such valuation and many properties do not ? attract any offer at all. Nevertheless mort gagees 'exercising power of sale were bound to realise the security in good faith and with, every precaution to obtain the best price. Ad vertisements in publications most likely to be seen by likely buyers ...
REAL ESTATE HOPEFUL PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 1 October 1930
REAL ESTATE HOPEFUL PROSPECTS One of the hopeful features' in the Real Estate world is the alluring aspect that our rates and returns on investments ought to make. /to foreign capital, which . should be at tracted to this - young- and-1 vigorous countrj'. The rates on investments in England and America are extraordinarily low, so that' a country like Australia, notwithstanding the fact that it is* passing through a period of depression, that can. pay 20 per cent. (West's Pictures) on even a few of its investments, or 9| per cent, on more staple investments (Australian Gas Light Co.) should have a tre mendous appeal.
