Current & Future Investments – A component of the office buildings sales revenues in 2003 & 2006 ($741m in current dollars), was held for a Clifton Beach Wind Farm project that ultimately, did not eventuate due to political factors. The $300m allocated for this will now be applied to properties and/or in a suitable operating business, adding to its existing $600m in real estate commitments.
