ICON tower sells for $144.9 million. What if council hadn’t sold it before construction began?

ICON tower sells for $144.9 million. What if council hadn’t sold it before construction began?

The ICON building sale this week sets the pace for likely increases to commercial property values in Ipswich CBD. It changed hands for a premium of $144.9 million. Sold for the second time in fewer than 10 years – it begs the question – what if council’s former property arm, Ipswich City Properties, hadn’t been wound up under political pressure and ICON hadn’t been sold first time round before completion?

Deadline missed for naming CBD cinema and tenants, two minute meeting and city to get galvanized

From the August round of committee meetings: Council misses another deadline to announce a CBD cinema operator and new tenants, the Commonwealth Hotel agreement for leasing has progressed, but again no names have been announced and councillors divided on the cost of renewing a lease for a student study help service from Ipswich Libraries. Meanwhile this month’s Community, Culture, Arts and Sports Committee had no new items to consider and the city to get galvanized.

From conquering one of life’s great tragedies to climbing Kilimanjaro – special guest Loz Antonenko

Hearing daily Covid numbers during a lockdown can certainly be a dippy downer and a challenge to maintain a positive outlook. Recently I was lucky enough to hear a talk from Ipswich-based healthy habit coach and author Loz Antonenko. Her story is one that will make you take stock of your daily routine and hopefully bring about some positive changes to your daily habits.
