Highly visible commercial units from one of the main thoroughfares in Launceston.
The current requirements within Launceston for new homes are being met to a certain extent by the new developments on the edge of the town. However these developments do not satisfy the need for a large number of new buyers, due to price, that this project would be able to service.'
