Originally formed as a partnership between Ray Mulholland and John Hembrow, Rayjon commenced residential building in Miami on the Gold Coast in 1976. After completing approximately 100 units in the Miami area, the group moved its attention to Burleigh Waters – completing an additional 91 townhouse and villa units.
In 1981, they commenced developing the Treetops estate and went on to complete over 600 detached and attached homes in the ensuing 9 years under a managed masterplan.
The 12ha Treetops District Centre strategically located on the intersection of Reedy Creek Road and Bermuda Street, Burleigh Waters was their next focus for attention. The Coles anchored Treetops Plaza Shopping Centre was opened in 1992 and was followed by Treetops Square, with major banking and medical facilities, Executive Place office building and the Treetops Dining and Cafe Precinct.
In 1996, development began on a 4ha site at the corner of Christine Avenue and Bermuda Street, Varsity Lakes, where Rayjon constructed the Christine Corner Shopping Centre and Diamonds Bar & Gaming.
The group has retained ownership of key assets, including Treetops Plaza Shopping Centre and has pursued a process of strategic land acquisition. A number of development approvals have recently been obtained and the group is poised to commence several significant new developments, including Urbia Burleigh, the $500 million transformation of Treetops into a vibrant urban village; and Island Grove, 81 residential apartments at Hope Island. Rayjon also holds retail approval for a site at Tambourine Village.
Current projects include Vantage Gold Coast, a $200 million master planned residential development at Benowa and launching soon, a boutique apartment building at Burleigh Waters.
Rayjon maintains an active interest in hospitality, having owned and operated Diamonds Bar & Gaming at Varsity Lakes and more recently One50 Tavern at Bundall.
