Sydney's Best New Apartment Developments

There’s no doubting we’re in the midst of an apartment development boom. Stand on any Sydney street corner and you’ll most likely spot a new development. Once tired, passé suburbs are being transformed into urban meccas where literally everything is now at your fingertips. Hip eateries, boutique retail stores and helpful amenities are enticing investors, owner occupiers and renters to move on in and snap up a new pad.


But what Development is the right one for you? Which suburb are you going to feel truly at home in? What type of development will figuratively make you a hot chocky and tuck you in to bed at night? From choosing a furniture package to beautifully complement your new purchase, to deciding on the 'Night' or 'Day' interiors theme for your new off the plan apartment, the choices are endless and can, at times, be a little overwhelming.


Terraces, apartments and townhouses, Sydney is a buzz with development options, so to assist in the process, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite Sydney Developments for 2017 and highlighted, what we think, are their best attributes.

Enjoy, and happy home hunting!
