“[Hillsdale is a] convenient location and an adjoining suburb of Eastgardens. It’s basically a 10-minute drive to the airport and close to Southpoint Shopping Centre, transport, and the eastern suburbs beaches. Hillsdale is an area that will continue to grow,” Martin Farah from NG Real Estate said. “It’s not as expensive as Coogee, Little Bay, Maroubra, or Randwick.” The article about Hillsdale notes that the 1853m2 site has attracted plenty of interest from investors and developers in Sydney and Australia-wide.
