Australand Property Group History

Australand originated from Hooker Corporation which collapsed in the property crash that occurred in the late 1980s. The company listed on the Australin Stock Exchange in 1997 with Singapore-based DBS Land, now known as CapitaLand, as the managing shareholder. In 1999, through the acquisition of Walker Corporation, the Company entered into the commercial, industrial and apartment markets. In 2003, the Australand Property Group was created with the stapling of Australand Property Trust (APT) units to the ordinary shares of ALZ.
