Moral fund pushes Grocon additional to the brink, terminating constructing contract


An moral fund supervisor has terminated struggling developer Grocon’s constructing contract for a multi-storey workplace tower on Melbourne’s metropolis fringe, a transfer more likely to speed up the corporate’s collapse.

The rich Liberman family-backed Impression Funding Group, which payments itself as a social and environmentally accountable fund supervisor, has torn up its contract with Grocon to assemble an $111 million workplace tower in Collingwood, per week after the developer put 39 development firms into administration.

The fund supervisor expects to lose greater than $20 million on account of Grocon’s demise.

The termination will put additional stress on Grocon, with a minimum of two of its development firms linked to the Collingwood Northumberland challenge that aren’t at the moment in administration more likely to be tipped over the sting.
