The re-development of Launceston’s C.H. Smith site, which will see the historic buildings revitalised to include a café, restaurant, car park and office spaces, is well and truly on track with developers handing over the newly completed 300-space car park to the Launceston City Council last month.

Tasplan’s wholly-owned subsidiary QT Investment Management played a crucial role in the funding of this project which will have a positive impact on the Launceston community through the creation of employment and the economic opportunities it opens up for the region.

Developers are working closely with the architect to protect the unique history of the C.H. Smith building and to provide much needed infrastructure to the region after the site sat vacant for more than two decades.

QT Investment Management Commercial Lending Manager Andrew Woodberry said Tasplan was committed to long-term investments in Tasmania and was proud to support this significant development.

“Tasplan’s contribution to the success of our communities extends beyond managing our members’ retirement savings,” Mr Woodberry said.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer commercial loans to Tasmanians and play a role in breathing new life into our local communities.

“Investing in projects like the C.H. Smith redevelopment is a great example of the work we do here at QT Investment Management and the contributions these developments can have toward the creation of employment and economic opportunities for all Tasmanians.”

Working under the umbrella of 2017 Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Award winners for industry super funds, Tasplan, QT Investment Management provide a straightforward loan structure with their dedicated team of two, managing loans from start to finish.
