I noticed new for sale signs for the vacant lot beside coles a few days ago. Looks like there is still money to be made in real estate.

So there will be 2 data centres in our area - Polaris and Digital Reality

I don't think its a basketball court as it does not require pylons or a fence around it. I agree it could be cricket nets for batting practice

Our neighbours got robbed yesterday. A bit surprising because they are on a corner block. Would probably be a good idea to be extra cautious on long weekends like this.

Why would you be shocked? You sold a townhose for 700K. I don't get it.
