Essential specialises in premium development consultation, owners corporation management and community engagement services. Our market insights are unrivalled among owners corporation managers. You simply will not find anyone else who offers as comprehensive a service as we do.

The driving force behind Essential is the Quinn family, who have been making their mark in Australian real estate for almost a century, developing entire suburbs and cities. Our Executive Chairman, Adrian Quinn, third generation, brings over 35 years’ experience in premium development consultancy and owners corporation management, including Australian landmarks such as the Eureka Tower, Park Central, The Melburnian and Tribeca – as well as 95% of all residential towers in Melbourne Docklands.

Overseas, notable Essential projects include the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, the second tallest residential structure, Princess Tower, and the master-planning of the whole of Dubai marina, which features more than 150 high-rise buildings.

Following the original company, Property Essentials, founded in Melbourne in 1990, Adrian Quinn established Essential in Dubai in 2006 and then moved back to Melbourne in 2011. His son Nicholas, fourth generation Quinn, has now joined Essential, and we’re anticipating an exciting future, with developments like Australia 108 – featuring the highest residences in the southern hemisphere – in our portfolio
