A render of Maison, 60 Moray St, New Farm.

The penthouse will have its own private rooftop with a pool, barbecue area and open space for the owner to furnish to suit their needs.It’s not the first time the three of them have worked together.Frank Developments also collaborated with Graya to create the luxury home ‘Laurent’ in Paddington, which sold for $4 million last year.“We have known each other for over a decade, since we started in the construction industry,” Mr Licastro said. “We had been looking for the right site for well over two years and we found it on a beautifully square corner block in Moray Street, which allowed for three sides of light in our sky homes.” A render of Maison, 60 Moray St, New Farm. Image: Frank Developments.Graya director Rob Gray said Maison’s location and design would make it a landmark building that people would recognise for years to come.“We were so happy when we found our site,” Mr Gray said.“The corner lot makes the floor plans extremely efficient and liveable, unlike many of the dark and compromised floor plans you see time and time again.“We feel many people are missing the market by not truly delivering what their end occupant wants in regards to design and lifestyle. We have long careers ahead of us, but we know this will be a flagship project that we have put everything we have into.” The kitchen in the house, named Laurent, at 44 Reading St, Paddington, which sold for $4m.

Graya and Frank Developments built this house, named Laurent, in Paddington. Picture: Scott Burrows.Development approval for the project was granted by Brisbane City Council last month without appeal within the Planning and Environment Court, which Mr Gray said was a reflection of the extensive community consultation undertaken in the lead-up.Maison will be launching to the market in the coming weeks.And we can expect more where that came from, with Mr Gray revealing Graya plans to go down the multi-residential path more often in the future.Graya has built homes for Broncos captain Darius Boyd and his wife Kayla, former Wallabies captain Stephen Moore and rapper Example and his model wife, Erin McNaught, among other high-profile names.

Clayton Kershaw as the National League MVP — the numbers don’t lie

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Here is the case to be made for Kershaw and how he ranks among his National League peers. Stats below are limited to the 44 qualifying National League pitchers who have averaged at least one inning pitched for every game his team has played.WINS19 – Kershaw18 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)/Adam Wainwright (St. Louis)11.27 – National League average Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw looks to be a shoo-in for his third National League Cy Young Award. However, unlike last season when the southpaw won the Cy Young Award and placed sixth in the NL Most Valuable Player Award voting, the 26-year-old appears to be a serious NL MVP candidate.In 19 starts since June 2, Kershaw has gone 16-1 with a miniscule 1.26 earned-run average. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, since 1913 — the first year earned runs were tracked in both major leagues — the only pitcher with a stretch of 19 starts within one season in which he recorded at least 16 wins with no more than one loss with an ERA as low as Kershaw’s is the St. Louis legend Bob Gibson,The Cardinals right-hander went 17-1 with a 0.72 ERA over a 19-start span from June 2 through Sept. 2, 1968.Which is fitting considering the last pitcher to win an NL MVP was Gibson in 1968, when he finished 22-9 with a 1.12 ERA.center_img WIN-LOSS PCT..863 – Kershaw (19-3).706 – Jordan Zimmermann (Washington, 12-5).527 – National League averageERA (Earned-Run Average)1.70 – Kershaw2.15 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)3.53 – National League averageWHIP (Walks plus Hits divided by Innings Pitched)0.83 – Kershaw0.96 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)1.24 – National League averageCOMPLETE GAMES6 – Kershaw4 – 4 players tied0.98 – National League averageSTRIKEOUT-TO-WALK RATIO7.82 – Kershaw6.00 – Jordan Zimmermann (Washington)3.16 – National League averageSTRIKEOUTS PER NINE INNINGS10.63 – Kershaw10.25 – Stephen Strasburg (Washington)7.40 – National League averageAnd for the more advanced pitching statistics, we offer Kershaw and his top competition in the National League:FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching)(Measures pitcher’s effectiveness at preventing HR, BB, HBP and causing strikeouts)1.86 – Kershaw2.61 – Hyun-Jin Ryu (Dodgers)2.77 – Jordan Zimmermann (Washington)ERA+(adjusted to the player’s ballpark)210 – Kershaw168 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)147 – Cole Hamels (Philadelphia)WAR (Wins Above Replacement)(Number of wins the player added to the team above what a replacement player would add)8.0 – Kershaw6.5 – Jason Heyward (Atlanta)6.4 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)WPA (Win Probability Added)(Given average teams, this is the change in probability; a change of +/- 1 would indicate one win added or lost)5.2 – Kershaw4.3 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)3.7 – Adam Wainwright (St. Louis)SITUATIONAL WINS SAVED(Sum of WPA divided by the leverage index for each play)5.3 – Kershaw3.9 – Adam Wainwright (St. Louis)3.9 – Johnny Cueto (Cincinnati)last_img read more
