Established in 2008, Flagship Property Holdings (Flagship) was originally seeded by cash and non-core assets of its major shareholders Seven Group Holdings (SGH) and Plenary Group.
Flagship’s success with those original assets has given rise to projects such as Pan Pacific (formerly Hilton) Melbourne South Wharf, 8 Central Avenue and Sunday Apartments and has encouraged the Board to continue to build its portfolio outside of these seed assets and create value in the wider property market.
Flagship now has a track record of completed projects, a strong balance sheet and a demonstrated approach that is collaborative, informed, reliable and bankable.
Our collaboration is reflected in the strong partnerships we build between clients, designers, builders, project sponsors and financiers to create enduring solutions that deliver value.
Flagship’s Board comprises individuals with broad and extensive experience in property development, project management, capital raising and finance.
