What a day! October has almost ended and it feels like Summer already!
Firstly, if any one is looking for last minute Halloween costumes and accessories pop into Dollar King in the Mall, it has it all!
Fingers crossed the weather stays this wonderful for the weekend, especially with the Beachfest on at Dunningham Park, Peryman Square and the Plaza. Retro cars will be on display for judging and awards with live bands and solo performers over the two days.
Starting from the south, half of Eclectic Home & Garden sits empty waiting for a new shop owner.
We finally have a new tenant in the former Chocpad shop – Leah’s Wax Works has moved in! Further down the mall Classic Nails Beauty and Waxing has also moved into the former Body Pro Supplements store.
Unfortunately we’re still eagerly waiting to see who will eventually move into the old Australand Greenhills Beach office.
Forever Fashion are closing down with 50% of storewide. I wonder what new store will appear here?!
The optometrists near Code Orange are surrounded by builders and scaffolding, a new store layout perhaps?
Nutrition station is opening soon where La Luna was and the local computer store next door to McDonalds and the Cronulla Cinemas entrance has also closed.
Closer to the beach new coffee shop Bianchini’s is doing a roaring trade, looks like a popular spot!
Greenhills Beach is Sydney’s newest beachside suburb (named in July 2011). From the 17th September, Australand have released new lots of land within the area to purchase. These lots allow buyers to build their own homes (within design guidelines).
Situated 2km out of Cronulla, the new suburb of Greenhills Beach is proving to be very popular with over 1200 enquiries so far.
Some questions that need to be asked.
What impact will this new suburb have on traffic around North Cronulla area?
Will it increase or decrease the value of homes in nearby areas?
What impact on local schools can be expected?
How will development at Greenhills Beach affect the environment?
According to Australand, environmental factors have been taken into serious consideration. Along with the development they will be ensuring the rehabilitation of nearby Wanda sanddunes takes place. They will be planting new trees and plants natural to the area. As well as providing on-site storm-water management and providing new ponds for green and golden bell frogs.
Cronulla is proving to be a highly sought after area – and who wouldn’t want to live here! With stretches of beach, bush and unpolluted bays we are very luck to live somewhere so naturally beautiful. North Cronulla in particular, is definitely in for a shake up – what with Greenhills Beach plus the proposed $300 million dollar retail and residential development at Cronulla Sharks.
What are your thoughts on the new development? Do you think buyers will be coming from inside or outside of the Sutherland Shire?
