Property developer Jeff Xu is cashing in and selling the five-star Sheraton Melbourne Hotel his Golden Age Group completed three years ago on Little Collins Street.

The 174-room hotel opened in early 2014 and marked the return of the Sheraton brand to Melbourne after an absence of nearly a decade. Based on other recent hotel transactions, market observers anticipated a price of between $130 million and $140 million.

The Sheraton Melbourne formed part of a 32-level mixed-used development by Golden Age Group. The developer recently purchased Grocon's neighbouring 85 Spring Street apartment project for $75 million while construction has started on another Golden Age Melbourne high-rise project, Collins House on Collins Street.

For example, we don't mind the use of profanity in the office. We might be laid back, but being late is uncool. We prefer chit chat to start a business meeting and we socialise after work — a lot.

And while it may be second nature to partake in these rituals for those of us who are none the wiser, some of these conventions can be surprising to foreigners when they begin working in Australia.

Sometimes it pays to be in round two. Like with the Shacky, a Melbourne-designed and made Tiny House that is taking the country, or Airbnb at least, by storm. The initial Shacky was crowd-funded, and took up temporary residence on a farm in the Otways from June until September last year, with people able to experience life in the little house through Airbnb. But guests’ feedback was taken very seriously.

“We monitored the experience of our guests really closely,” says Shacky director Joep Pennartz. “We saw it as a market testing: do people want to stay in a Shacky at all? On top of that we really wanted to improve on the design of the house, and the experience,” he says.

Local sandstone, out of which much of 19th-century Sydney was built, will feature in the base of the building and will "feather up" - or fade out - out as the tower rises.

China's government is planning to introduce new restrictions on foreign investment deals in a bid to stem capital outflows, a move that will be felt across the globe as Chinese companies have been on a buying spree this year.

While Beijing will still support outbound investments that fit with the operations of a company and their international expansion plans, it will take a tougher stance on financial investments, according to Xu Hongcai, deputy chief economist at the China Centre for International Economic Exchanges, a government think-tank.

"We will strengthen investigations and checks on big investments," Mr Xu told the Australian Financial Review.

The government will today outline plans to shake up the way it delivers services via technology, opening up as much as $560 million for spending with startups and smaller technology companies.

The moves come as part of a much-anticipated taskforce into government ICT procurement, which will be launched by Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation Angus Taylor at an InnovationAus conference in Canberra.

At the event Mr Taylor will release a discussion paper and call for private sector submissions into opening up the government's $5.6 billion annual tech budget to innovative smaller companies that have previously been excluded from doing business with government departments.

Developers will be allowed to build taller apartment towers in Melbourne's CBD as long as they provide "public amenities" including office space as the city council seeks to maintain the city's commercial core.

Melbourne's move to control CBD development comes as Sydney also pushes back against a takeover of the central city by a flood of high-rise apartment towers.

Danni Addison, chief executive of the Urban Development Institute of Australia, a lobby group, said the new rules for the Melbourne CBD were "a very blunt tool" but had enough flexibility "to negotiate outcomes on a site by site basis".

Hashching, a website for home buyers to choose mortgage brokers, has built the first fully-digital process for home loan verification in Australia, which would allow banks to comply with strict regulations for identifying clients without having to send them to a branch.

This weekend, Hashching, which has processed $2.6 billion of mortgages since launching 15 months ago, will begin the pilot for a biometric identity verification service allowing brokers on its platform to satisfy strict "know your client" (KYC) banking regulations by asking a customer on a video call to hold up a proof of identity to the camera on their computer or mobile phone.

Across the banking industry, KYC verification for mortgages – designed to prevent money laundering by criminals – is still conducted with in-person meetings; customers either have to travel into a branch or receive a visit from a bank or broker representative. This delays the process and can be intrusive.

The private developer and state utility have collaborated on Aquarevo, a $260 million project that will transform a 42-hectare decommissioned water purification plant in Lyndhurst, about 35 kilometres from the city, into a 460-lot development.

Each house built on the estate will use rainwater and high-quality recycled sewerage water to reduce demand for drinking water by up to 70 per cent – the equivalent of 1.2 million showers – while energy consumption will be reduced through solar panelling on the roof.

Listing volumes have been remarkably shallow this spring; we’re at levels one might expect in a depressed market in which little is selling, so everyone is sitting on the sidelines. But the circumstances are at the other end of the scale in Sydney and Melbourne: auction clearance rates are regularly posting over 80 per cent, sometimes half-a-dozen bidders are fighting hard for a modest single-fronted cottage in a less fashionable suburb and the winner is paying $100,000 more than the recorded price of comparable properties sold just 12 months before.

I’m not sure conditions could be better for a prospective vendor. Nevertheless, it seems four years of a rising market have exhausted the pool, and we may have to wait until autumn 2017 before numbers are replenished.

The NSW government is building a new $250 million Sydney Fish Market and replacing the old building in Pyrmont with a new mixed use residential development.

The new 35,000 sq m market – double the size of the current property – will be built on an adjacent site to the market, which is leased to building materials manufacturer Hanson.

Hanson's lease ends at the end of the year but the NSW transformation arm UrbanGrowth, which is undertaking the project as part of its Bays Precinct project, said it would extend the lease by another 12 months until construction begins around 2018.

The new market will have 15,500 sq m of seafood retail space – compared with the current 6582 sq m – and outdoor dining for 3000 patrons as well as a possible rooftop bar.

The quarterly halt, after a year in which lending by Australia's majors for apartment construction jumped nearly 14 per cent, was a welcome sign that banks were limiting their exposure to a sector that is already at risk of oversupply, with approvals still rising, UBS analyst Jonathan Mott wrote in a note on Friday.

A Sydney house bought for $3.85 million two years ago sold for $5.15 million on Saturday as strong demand again outstripped measly supply in weekend auctions.

The auction of the four-bedroom home in the non-peninsula section of Hunters Hill set a local record. Nowhere is the supply crunch more apparent than in Sydney, where the volume of properties on the market is down 29 per cent over the 12 months to the end of July.

A lack of stock and the location of 35 Bonnefin Road in the non-peninsula part of Hunters Hill were key factors, with the home selling for $750,000 above reserve.

"It's a relatively affordable price for that side of Hunters Hill for a waterfront home," said Savills agent Adam Ross, who sold the house in conjunction with Bresic Whitney's Nicholas McEvoy. "The bigger prices tend to be pulled on the peninsula. This a record for the non-peninsula side."
