And out in the east, Chinese capital-backed Nine Dings, led by Yubin Tong, is looking for an exit from its 11-storey Hayball-designed project.

Savills agents Benson Zhou, Julian Heatherich, Clinton Baxter and Jesse Radisich are marketing the expressions of interest campaign which closes on July 15.
The 260-unit project is at the gateway to the Doncaster Hill metropolis anchored by the former Doncaster Shoppingtown, now known more prosaically as Westfield Doncaster.
Nine Dings is owned by Yubin Tong and De Ke Su but the share registry when they bought the site in 2015 also included serious Chinese capital – Wide Way Investments Shanghai and Shanghai Zhongjiu Investment Group.

It’s on a 1415 sq m site and has capacity for 106 children. Guardian’s 15-year lease started in 2016.
