Investment in real estate is a well proven means to wealth creation. The keys to real estate investment involve:

  • the right land
  • the right product
  • the right price
  • the right market conditions


NHS Developments was formed to identify suitable investment opportunities for development. A rigorous feasibility and assessment protocol is applied to all potential opportunities which are then either disgarded or progressed based on their forecast economic return.


Opportunities which survive this process are then made available for consideration by investors on the basis of achieving a handsome return.


Typically these projects involve medium density developments however with the vast experience the New Home Shop Group enjoys, the future involves far larger projects such as broadacre developments, multi level apartment complexes and even mixed use/commercial developments.


NHS Developments is spearheaded by Lawrence Bowtell, a veteran in the development space with a truly stellar CV.


Some of Lawrence’s projects include:

  • Bendigo Bank Headquarters – 120 Harbour Esplanade, Docklands
  •  Como Plaza – 651 Chapel St, Sth Yarra
  •  Menzies Malvern – High St and Glenferrie Rd, Malvern
