BY ERIN PEARSON OWNERS of shops in central Geelong should prepare their disused upstairs spaces to accommodate 2000 extra university students on their way into town, according to a business owner. Andrew Mauderer said his experience of renting part of his Little Ryrie St premises to students for the past 11 years returned more than just a financial windfall. “We didn’t need the space for a second studio, so we set it up as a two-bedroom unit. We just stripped it down, polished the floorboards, added paint and put in a heater,” he said. “There’s been no added stress to business and it works well for security reasons having lights on and people around after hours.” In May the Independent revealed that Deakin University was prepared to relocate 2000 arts, education, commerce and law students to its waterfront campus. Business and civic leaders believe the extra students could help revitalise the central city area. In 2009 the Independent reported that shop top living was part of a State Government Central Geelong Urban Living program, while council had a five-year plan for 5000 residents in the city area. Gartland Real Estate commercial sales and leasing manager Michael De Stefano said disused shop tops could accommodate hundreds of students in central Geelong. He estimated that over half of the shop tops were vacant. “Most first-floor walk-ups are vacant and there would be little investment needed to make

newhomes&land Get more value from a quarter-acre G .J. Gardner Homes Geelong builder Rohan Smith is urging residents to look more closely at their backyards. He says many large blocks offer space for a dual-occupancy arrangement. “The key is for us to develop an awareness among people of what they are sitting on,” Rohan says. “Many people have a great opportunity to increase living and income potential.” Rohan says many traditional quarter-acre blocks have unused

space at the rear that can be used to build a unit. “At G.J. Gardner Homes we have a lot of smaller plans that range from 12, 13 and 15 squares and have two or three bedrooms at realistic prices,” he says. “G.J. Gardner Homes can also custom-design a home to suit a client’s needs. “The beauty of it is that they already own the land.” Rohan says dual occupancy is also a smart solution for home owners with elderly parents or for investors.

“A lot of people are worried about what they’re going to do with their parents as they get older. “There’s the potential to live in one home and rent out the other, or sell both. “People need not worry about the processes involved in subdividing the land. G.J. Gardner Homes can help them do this and obtain a planning permit. “There is no stress for them.” More information is available by phoning Rohan on 5221 1447.
