Company Overview
Founded in 2015, Cardo is committed to acquiring top-tier properties, including luxury apartments, mixed-use developments, hotels, and Co-Living spaces across NSW. In our pursuit of luxury apartment living, we aim to develop residences that offer breathtaking views of Sydney’s iconic landmarks such as the Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, Manly Beach, Point Piper, Double Bay, Rose Bay, Kirribilli, and McMahons Point. These prestigious locations are complemented by exclusive amenities such as private concierge services, pools, cellars, private car lifts, and a wellbeing centre. Our target clientele consists of high-net-worth individuals or celebrities seeking to invest between $8 million and $20 million in such properties. To achieve this, we actively collaborate with leading commercial real estate agents, including CBRE, Colliers International, Savills, JLL, Sotheby’s, R&W, and Knight Frank.

Cardo is not only focused on residential developments but also seeks to venture into mixed-use projects, including hotels and Co-Living spaces. These endeavours aim to create vibrant communities by seamlessly integrating retail spaces, offices, and residences. Currently, we are overseeing the construction of a boutique hotel at 30-35 May Street, St Peters, in the Inner West, featuring 83 rooms, commercial premises, and underground parking on behalf of one of our clients.

Furthermore, Cardo has introduced a new concept in Co-Living spaces, prioritising a community-centric approach alongside luxurious amenities. Currently, we are collaborating with a client to develop more than 90 studio Co-Living Spaces. We anticipate announcing the project once we finalise our due diligence on its viability.

Through collaborative partnerships with clients and industry experts, Cardo has established a reputation for integrity and excellence, ensuring the delivery of exceptional property developments and outstanding results. Since our inception, we have facilitated property transactions totalling nearly $1 billion AUD across New South Wales.
