A recently completed, prominently located Wollongong townhouse is now on the market.
The new townhouse, located at 2/101 Corrimal Street, Wollongong features three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
It has a price guide of $1.1 million.
In 2012, the site's then owner, Wollongong antique dealer and part-time property developer Barry Becarevic, through JBA Planning Consultants lodged an application with Wollongong City Council, seeking approval to construct a three-storey development at 101 Corrimal Street.
Under the plans, an ageing, single-storey house was to be demolished and four trees on the site removed to make way for the development.
"I want to give Wollongong something different to what we currently have in the city," he told the Mercury in 2012.
"I know I would have made more money if I'd chosen to go down the line of putting up 20 two-bedroom units, but I want to give the city something that is aesthetically pleasing."
The DA was approved in 2015.
Mr Becarevic later on-sold the site, with DA approval for six townhouses, to another developer.
In 2016, the development at 101 Corrimal Street hit the market, with some of the terrace homes advertised to be sold off-the-plan.
The complex was completed several months ago.
Owner/builder Chris Lozenkovski said of the six townhouses, one was sold off-the-plan, while four were retained by the owners for private rental, and the other is for sale.
"When we got the DA from Barry, we could have turned around and changed the DA and put up to probably 18 units on there," Mr Lozenkovski said.
"But Wollongong's probably over-supplied with units... And because we wanted to keep a lot of them for our family to live in one day, we wanted a product that would meet their requirements, and the DA that he had actually suited us, because there was nothing in Wollongong like that.
"It's very hard to find a terrace home in that location, of that type of quality... You'd more expect something like that in inner Sydney."

Mr Lozenkovski said the property was not only a "unique product", but was also well-located close to the beach, cafes and schools.
"It's quite space-y inside, so it's bigger than your usual townhouses and so forth.
"It's an opportunity that won't be replicated again."
Co-selling agent for 2/101, Matthew Kasbarian from Stone Real Estate - Illawarra said it featured high-end features throughout and was in a central location.
"There are not that many terraces available like this that are that close to the CBD," he said.
Features include three bedrooms with built-in robes, master features ensuite and private balcony; main bathroom with freestanding tub, stone vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiles; study nook, guest powder room, downlights, ducted air conditioning and gas heating; and living and dining zones with flowing access to an undercover balcony.
