Recently, discussion around the gentrification of Kings Cross and parts of bordering Potts Point has shown the rapid increase in attention from property investors and a new type of renter to the area. These suburbs have attracted interest in renters from higher socioeconomic groups. The knock-on effect has begun to affect surrounding suburbs and in particular, Woolloomooloo.

“Woolloomooloo has always been popular because of it’s location on the harbour and proximity to the city,” says principal agent Trisiana Muljono from SydneyLinks.

Property at all ends of the scale continue to perform well and remain in high demand from sale right through to leasing. Sales agent Simon Hohnen along with Trisiana recently sold a popular townhouse at 118 McElhone Street. The fashionable enclave proved popular with it’s privacy and easy access to popular eateries, the Woolloomooloo Wharf, Art Gallery and the life of the Cross only a short stroll away.
