Residents of Capital Bluestone’s Woolooware Bay community already enjoy a rooftop cinema, private spa, sauna, indoor lap pool and gym, but the latest release of apartments is set to deliver even more sky-high luxury.

Designed by award-winning architects Turner, the ‘Crest’ building of 118 apartments introduces a ‘wave’ element on the façade accentuated by bronze detailing, and crowned by a residents-only infinity edge pool and pool club with 360-degree district and water views stretching across to the Sydney CBD skyline.

The top floor private rooftop space includes an infinity pool and luxurious lounge and dining spaces, a full catering kitchen, barbecues, and full-length windows to take full advantage of the elevated position.

Crest is the next building to be released in Stage 3 at Woolooware Bay. The first release – Pier – sold out all 55 apartments in late 2014, and the final two stages – Links and Grove Terraces are expected to come to market later this year.

As with the previous stages of the development, the communal nature of Woolooware Bay is reflected in Stage 3, with many spaces for residents to enjoy, including barbecue facilities, a vegetable garden, lawn areas, and a community workshop room.

“The facilities at Woolooware Bay are one of the stand out features of the community. There is simply nowhere like it in this area that provides access to so many different lifestyle benefits – whether it’s the spaces we’re building – like the pools or cinema areas – or those we’re connecting in with like the unprecedented access we’ll provide to a restored foreshore that will include playgrounds, cycleways and walking paths,” said Capital Bluestone Managing Director Ben Fairfax.

Located just a kilometre from the famed Cronulla beaches, Crest includes 47 one-bedroom apartments, 65 two-bedroom apartments, five three-bedroom premium apartments and one penthouse.

The release has been long-awaited by buyers keen to become part of the Woolooware Bay lifestyle. Residents moved into Stage 1 in December 2016, while Stage 2 – Landings and Cove – is expected to complete early next year (2018).

Mr Fairfax says the diverse range of housing options and price points made Stage 3 at Woolooware Bay an ideal option for buyers from every stage of life.

“We’re seeing Sutherland Shire undergo a major revitalisation, which means there is a bright future ahead for the area and strong growth prospects,” he says. “So, this is an opportunity to buy into the area and be part of that story and a re-energised community.”

Located on a 10-hectare waterfront site neighbouring the stadium and headquarters of landowner Cronulla Sutherland Leagues Club (Cronulla Sharks), the project encompasses 643 apartments set within a resort-style, town centre environment.

At completion, the community will be serviced by a range of private facilities such as pools, barbecue spaces, a rooftop cinema and landscaped gardens, a new shopping centre precinct with major household anchor brands and a range of casual and fine dining options.

Revitalised parklands at the waterfront will also include a Livvi’s Place inclusive playground created in conjunction with the Touched By Olivia Foundation.

Sharks CEO Lyall Gorman said the strong community-oriented nature of the development was aligned with the Club’s role and vision.

“It is with great excitement that we welcome the next phase of our Woolooware Bay Residential Development, the launch of Stage 3,” said Mr Gorman.

With residents already living in and enjoying Stage 1, Stage 2 continuing to come out of the ground at a rapid rate and Stage 3 coming onto the market, it is an absolute delight to be a part of the development of this new and vibrant community.

While there is still a considerable amount to accomplish, the entire Woolooware Bay precinct will become an integral part of our Club and one of which the whole of the Shire should be rightly proud.”
