Developer secures $65m from Credit Suisse for future growth

A local residential property developer and builder has received a $65 million corporate financing facility from Credit Suisse.

Metro Property Development, an Australian residential developer and builder, will use the proceeds from the financing to fund growth opportunities and the ongoing working capital needs of the group.

Metro has one of the largest residential development pipelines in Australia, with 46 projects valued at more than $2.9 billion.

A number of recent project launches have contributed to more than $1.3 billion of pre-sales across the groups, including Brisbane Casino Towers, Laguna and St Tropez in Brisbane and The Lincoln, South Yarra and Highbury Townhomes, Footscray in Melbourne.

Metro intends to build on this momentum with additional project launches across the Australian east coast.
