Boutique Property Development
CostaFox is an established property developer making an impact on Australia’s commercial and residential property scenes.
In recent years we have developed multifaceted projects in an array of urban settings; from luxury ocean-front dwellings in Sydney’s Manly, to hipster-haven in Melbourne’s historic Cremorne.
Each development, regardless of location, sets a new standard of excellence in the region.
We believe it is our discerning eye for design and skill and identifying opportunity that sets us apart.
Our team includes some of the most highly respected names in Australian property. Collectively, we have over thirty years’ experience, have delivered billions of dollars’ worth of award winning projects and have worked collaboratively with world leading practitioners. We work on just a handful of projects each year.
Favouring quality, not quantity, allows us to create.

Austin’s career has stemmed from a construction and design background, having adopted a ‘hands-on approach’ to construction delivery. Beginning his career ‘on the tools’ as a metal fabricator/boilermaker in his late teenage years, he quickly moved into the commercial construction industry in his early twenties. Austin’s strong passion for construction and development became apparent during a six and a half year tenure at Crema Group.
