Lou Zivanovic


Lou has been involved in many aspects of the Development and Construction Industry over the past 30 years. During this period, Lou formed the view that ‘quality will sell' and that few developers were embracing this doctrine.

As a result Lou formed CABE Developments in 1999 with the vision to create a specialist development company that controlled every aspect of a project from inception to completion.

CABE's commitment to each development is testament to Lou's philosophy. The strength of this commitment is reflected in the beliefs, customer focus and dedication to deliver. Each project undertaken has set new records in design and sales. The outcome for CABE's customers is representative of Lou's philosophy – 'Quality Will Sell'.

CABE's handpicked management team is reflective of the professional approach Lou has sought to build the business upon. Each member of the CABE team has been chosen due to their own record of being instrumental in the development and construction of a large number of prestigious projects. Consequently, CABE's growing record in residential design and development speaks for itself – CABE – Lou Zivanovic’s 'Vision Made Real'.
