Northern Suburbs Commercial Centres Lead the Way

Northern Suburbs Commercial Centres Lead the Way

The nine suburban central business districts in the Northern Suburbs of the Illawarra are continuing to show the benefits of increased tourist visitation and a sustained residential population growth. Evidence of these thriving conditions is the sale made by MMJ Wollongong of 43-45 Princes Highway, Fairy Meadow. This transacted prior to auction, to an established local investor at a record yield of 4.2% net.  

The residential market in the Northern Suburbs has seen a rapid and unprecedented housing price growth over the past five years, with an estimated 40% or more of all buyers coming from Sydney. Major developments recently completed include Edgewood, McCauleys Beach, Bulli Brickworks, Sandon Point, Beaches Towradgi, Headlands Hotel, Wollongong University Innovation Campus and Campus East.

The commercial market has also seen several blue-chip companies establish new outlets including Woolworths Bulli, Bunnings Bellambi and three new medical centres.

Geoff Jones from MMJ Wollongong  said “with little or no greenfield sites for subdivision, the northern suburbs has seen steady population growth through infill development”. He went on to say that “Increased tourism has led to the emergence of a significant number of new cafes, bars and restaurants that local residents and visitors are benefiting from”.

MMJ Wollongong has two commercial properties in the Northern Suburbs going to public auction on Tuesday 19th June, 2018 (131-133 Balgownie Road, Balgownie and 378-384 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul).
