Back in the 1940s, one popular slogan was used to describe the Northern Beaches’ favourite suburb, Manly: Seven miles from Sydney and a thousand miles from care. As one of the most sought after suburbs in Sydney, Manly continues to fit this perfect description. The most advantageous factor is that the Sydney suburb is suitable for any lifestyle. From an aspiring surf culture to new families and aged community members, the area has something for everyone. The current snapshot shows a diverse demographic of local residents, from young adults to retirees; and singles to family units.
Boasting an array of art, music and literature spots such as galleries and museums, Manly has a refinement of select places for entertainment and attraction. The local bars, restaurants and cafes also create urban refinement for social, corporate or casual gatherings
Being one of the most popular destinations for expatriates, tourists and visitors, Manly is in itself it’s own community. It’s the place where locals and travellers mingle and is best known for the sense of belonging the suburb’s residents feel. It’s a common fact that those who are born and raised in Manly, stay true to their district their whole life
From the option of catching a ferry to work, to walking along the coastline, Manly and surrounding suburbs in the Northern Beaches assert a calm and tranquil lifestyle. With local swimming and surf clubs, as well as kayaking groups and other sports, there is also a wide range of leisure and fitness activities
With people working cohesively and collectively, doing business in Manly is also attractive. With a strong sense of community, many Sydney locals prosper by providing business opportunities in the region. To create jobs for the loyal locals, while maintaining an overall relaxed lifestyle, trade in the region remains highly desirable.
With the success of projects such as Sophie’s Garden by Cite Group, it is evident that property development and investment in the region is highly desirable to meet local market demand. Being a cosmopolitan attraction, it is no surprise that Manly and surrounding suburbs of the Northern Beaches maintain their positions as one of Sydney’s most popular regions.
Cite Group has developed an extensive portfolio across the Northern Beaches. These include Aqua in Narrabeen, Sunbather and Jarviss in Mona Vale, and most recently, Livistona currently being developed in Wheeler Heights.
