Far East Consortium (FEC) is a successful international property development company, with a strong Australian presence. Founded in 1960, FEC is one of Asia’s largest property developers and is a public company registered on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
Since commencing operations in Australia in 1994, FEC has contributed significantly to development, particularly in Victoria, having developed numerous landmark properties and introduced sustainable solutions to the thriving city of Melbourne.
As the driving force behind developing some of Melbourne’s most renowned residential apartment projects including: Upper West Side, The Fifth, Northbank Place, Flinders Wharf, Royal Domain, Regency Tower and the upcoming West Side Place (250 Spencer St) FEC has worked on over $2 billion worth of projects to date in Australia.
Most notable of these is Melbourne’s fastest selling precinct, Upper West Side, which featured 2200 apartments across 4 hugely successful towers Hudson, Madison, Midtown and Manhattan. This remains one of the single largest and most successful projects the city has ever seen.
In their approach to The Towers at Elizabeth Quay, Far East Consortium recognised that to achieve an iconic and world-class destination it would require more than well designed buildings and public spaces, although these are critical. It also needed to offer memorable experiences to attract local and global visitors and provide multiple reasons for people to enjoy being there, and return repeatedly. This ethos resulted in a carefully designed and planned residential precinct anchored by the proposed luxury Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
