Aldi under construction
Aldi Stores

Back in 2003 we took over a portfolio that included about 6000 sqm of land at the corners of Aerodrome Rd, Second Ave and Parker St, in Maroochydore. At the time there were some fairly rundown buildings on the site. We had our ups and...

Dalby Shopping Centre
Dalby Central Shopping Centre, Dalby

Shortly after starting to trade as Hindmarsh Property Services (circa 2000), we took over management of the recently completed Dalby Central and Pacific Haven Shopping Centres for developers, Reed Property Group. About that time we sold Pacific Haven to an investor that we still manage the...

57 Aerodrome Road, AFTER
57 Aerodrome Rd, Maroochydore

The improvements on this land were preleased for a “Night-Owl” convenience store and “BlockBuster Video”, before construction in the early 90’s. HPS took over the management as part of a portfolio about 2007. Unfortunately the internet disruptor overtook “Blockbuster” during 2013, such that they did not renew...

7 Charles Street, Kunda Park
7 Charles Ct, Kunda Park

With the widening of Maroochydore Rd, this 295 sqm industrial building had suddenly become highway frontage. Sadly though the design was still only good enough for the back-blocks. We approached Transport and Main Roads and without much trouble secured approval to extend a feature awning over...

64 Aerodrome Road, Maroochydore
64 Aerodrome Rd, Maroochydore

This site was originally pre-leased before construction to electrical retailer Chandlers. Through a succession of assignments Harvey Norman took over and had Joyce Mayne operating out of there for a number of years, before they relocated into their own centre on Maroochy Boulevard. The building...

7 Sunshine Beach Road, Noossa
7 Sunshine Beach Rd, Noosa Heads

During 2013 we met a dynamic young couple who have proven to be absolutely passionate about Japanese cuisine and an inspiration to others. I introduced them to a Chinese restaurant tenant of ours who had indicated he was ready to retire. It soon became evident there...

Maud Street
28 Maud Street, Maroochydore

This was the first property of a major portfolio HPS took over back in about 2006, or more particularly we were presented with the challenge that if we could find a Tenant for the derelict upstairs office at the back, we could manage them. Through a...

177 Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba
177 Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba

Unfortunately BlockBuster Video walked away from the tenancy after the end of their Lease. Another casualty of the internet disruptor. The Civil Engineers who had been leasing the whole of the upstairs were lured away to a rent free deal of new Premises in Maroochydore. As...

1 Kensington Drive AFTER
1 Kensington Drive, Minyama

This is a retail and medical centre built in the late 1980s. The owners gave HPS the management of their extensive portfolio about 2007. This is another example of a centre that was showing its age. Firstly we called tenders and had the roof replaced. This fixed...

Beach Road
“Forum Centre” – 37 Sunshine Beach Rd

We have managed 5 out of 6 of the lots in 37 Sunshine Beach Road since 2007. Built in 1985, the Centre had become quite dated in appearance. The dark green “Decramastic” roof cladding was certainly from a different era and latitude. Surf clothing giant “Rip-Curl” were...

179 Nicklin Way Warana
179 Nicklin Way, Warana

This is a shopping centre that was built in the 1980s. HPS took over the property management as part of a larger portfolio during 2005. Over the years we started to notice the strength of the tenants beginning to wane. For Lease signs were starting to be...

Hindmarsh Property Services - Bernard House
Bernard House & Cornmeal House
My first dealing with Barrie Woods was selling an Aerodrome Road property of his through a conjuncting Agent back around 1990. Barrie and Therese lived on Cornmeal Parade at the time next to the newly constructed Maroochydore Police Station and overlooking Cornmeal Creek. Therese’s parents lived next door. Barrie and Therese had recently purchased the third house in the group.
