Cronulla Mall Report: July 2014

IMAG0202We’re starting to feel the winter chill but that hasn’t kept people away from our beachside suburb! The beaches are certainly quieter but as per usual Cronulla is still a hub of activity.

One word comes to mind while walking through the Mall – sales! Some of these include:

  • All sale stock at Flirty under $30
  • Sales at Decisions Decisions
  • Winter store clearance at Forever Fashion
  • And many more!

IMAG0209_1Aside from Sportscraft that recently moved into the Mall, there haven’t been any other major changes.

The old Commonwealth Bank and Australand Greenhills Beach office are still looking to be leased.

IMAG0212_1The Cronulla Pie Shop have unfortunately lost their awning once again after a truck incident, but the customers still look happy enjoying the sunshine.

IMAG0215_1The much-loved Pirate Ship is undergoing some repairs and is scheduled to be out of action for a while, hopefully it will come back almost brand new!

Unfortunately Cronulla On Ice has ended but it was a major hit! We hope it comes back next year, hopefully even bigger this time!

Hopefully our stunning winter weather will stick around for the Sutherland 2 Surf this Sunday, hope to see you there!

Greenhills Beach New Land Release

The first land release for Greenhills Beach in 2012 opens on Saturday 18th February with registration open now. Australand’s first release of the land lots for the new suburb were all snapped up so it will be interesting to see whether the demand is as high for the next release in the coming weeks.

Just incase you missed the previous blogs (see bottom of page), numerous real estate ads in the paper, Domain brochures and flyers on your car windscreens, the new Greenhills Beach development has been advertised to offer direct access to over 5kms of Cronulla’s pristine beaches, 10 sports and playing fields in the Parklands, 7kms of cycleways, 4kms of coastal walking tracks and a total of 91ha of public open space, bushland, parks and reserves.

There are 3 types of land lots for purchase – lake, beach and bay/coastal lots. For a rough guide of land prices for these lots, see the descriptions below.

  • “Nestled between the shimmering waterways & heritage-listed sand dunes”
  • Lot 140 – 609m2 – $870,000

Greenhills Beach – New Land Released September 17

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).

New land release! On sale Saturday 17th September 2011.

Limited lots available in the Coastal, Lake and highly sought after Beach precincts.

  • Land sized from 556m² – 688m²

Call 13 38 38 or visit our Sales and Display Centre today for more information or to register for this new land release.

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?

New Wanda Lifeguard Headquarters

Finally the new Wanda Lifeguard Headquarters is taking shape. Late last year the slab was poured and then work seemed to stop. It was only months later that we were informed that the builder responsible for the construction at Wanda and Oak Park had gone into receivership.

The Council sign now says subject to weather conditions the project is anticipated to be finished in November this year.

The project will include a grassed area where groups like the nippers will meet, BBQ facilities, viewing platform, change rooms and toilets. Apparently the top floor of the new building will be the S.L.S.C Headquarters because of its proximity to the helipad and ease of access to parking and amenities.

With Australand’s Greenhills Beach land release sale officially launched this weekend, there will be a lot more people enjoying Wanda Beach. More infrastructure will certainly be needed so this project can not come soon enough.

In the meantime, if you go for a swim and nature calls you will have to make do with the portaloos.

Greenhills Beach For Sale on August 13th

After a marketing campaign that includes a new display office in Cronulla, Sydneywide newspaper ads, local newspaper ads and TV coverage, 1200 people have enquired on the blocks of land at Cronulla’s newest beachside suburb. Of these 1200 enquiries, 80 people have paid a refundable $5000 deposit to secure an appointment on the 13th August.

The first stage land release sale is offering 33 lots of land, so with 80 serious buyers the first stage should be all sold next weekend!

On July 22nd Greenhills Beach officially became the Sutherland Shire’s newest suburb when the NSW Geographical Names Board approved the choice.

What I’m really interested to know is where the majority of buyers will come from – are they locals or from out of the area?

New Blocks of Land at Greenhills Beach, Cronulla

A few weeks ago Australand opened their new display office at 81 Cronulla St in Cronulla Mall for the new land release campaign at Greenhills Beach, Cronulla. With a hammock in the window, Australand is promoting the laid back Cronulla lifestyle available to those who purchase in Cronulla’s newest suburb, Greenhills Beach.

Australand has been busy, just as registrations of interest opened for the first stage land release, the new suburb name of Greenhills Beach was formally presented to the public for comment by the NSW Geographical Names Board (comments on proposal of suburb name ending on 17th July, 2011). The Greenhills Beach area covers the area north of Wanda, between Cronulla High School at Bate Bay Rd and Lindum Rd.

Since opening the Sales and Display Centre in Cronulla Mall there have been constant queues out the front. Last week there were even rumours that people had slept out the front of the office overnight just to secure their interest!

Some Facts About The Greenhills Beach Land Release:

  • In the first release, there are approximately 33 blocks of land for sale in the new addresses of Greenhills St, Torquay Rd and Whitehaven Rd.
  • The blocks range from 550m2 to 736m2
  • The prices range from high $700,000s to early $800,000s
  • The main access road will be from Captain Cook Drive
  • There will be 7kms of bike tracks, 4 kms of walking trails
  • There will be 10 sports and playing fields
  • Includes 91ha of public open space, bushland, parks and reserves

How do I purchase land at Greenhills Beach, Cronulla?

Firstly you need to register your interest and then you will receive updates from Australand. If you wish to purchase a block prior to the official launch you will be contacted by a sales agent and at the initial meeting you will be asked to pay $5000 which is a fully refundable “Expression of Interest” amount. The Australand official paperwork states that this amount “Does NOT reserve or guarantee the purchase of a specific lot in the development or oblige you to purchase any lot in the development.” This deposit only secures you an initial appointment time. Tuesdays Leader reported that 30 people have paid this initial deposit.

Once you pay the deposit, the next step is the Pre Launch Release Day where if you decide to make a purchase you will be required to select your block of land and sign a Contract for Sale, with a 5 business day cool off period.

Lots do not go on sale until August 13th, 2011.

The Greenhills Beach Sales and Display Centre is open Thursday – Monday, 11am to 5pm.

Address: 81 Cronulla St, Cronulla Mall

The Cronulla Mall Report: South End + Shopping Sales

It’s all happening at the south end of Cronulla Mall this week. After months of many shop vacancies they are filling fast.

Let’s start at 81 Cronulla Street, which has had lots of behind the scenes renovations going on. This is perhaps the worst kept secret in Cronulla and the Shire. Yes I know you all know, because you keep telling me Australand is setting up shop here to sell lots of land at Greenhills Beach, North Cronulla. This display site should open any day now.

A little bit further south, the old Ray White office is really taking shape as a rumoured restaurant/ café. 103 Cronulla Street is also being renovated as we speak (next to Eyecare).
Further South, Cronulla Flower World is closed for business (premises recently sold). We do know what is going in here but again, can’t tell you…yet! (2 weeks if all goes to plan)

SALES SALES SALES

Then the shopping sales start, Sentier has 40-70% off, and boutique Chimere also has a sale.

Inspiration from The BLB

For some inspiration I cross over to The Best Little Book Shop In Town for their ‘Thought of the Day’ – “Ironically, making a statement with words is the least effective method”.

Next door Peking Duck Restaurant, which has re-opened after the fire, has ½ price Peking Duck with 2 courses every Thursday night (cash only).

I detour to the former “Waves” restaurant which is now “Simmone on the Park” and we hear the opening night is tonight. Sadly no one from Beach & Bay was invited so we hope to hear from one of you on how the food and ambience is!

In the meantime, happy shopping either for land or clothes!
