Popular watering hole the Northbridge Hotel, and the adjoining commercial precinct Northbridge Village, are set to make way for a new mixed-use retail and apartment building.

Plans have been filed with Willoughby Council for a new $45 million development comprising 24 apartments above street-level retail at 57-69 Strathallen Avenue, just off Sailors Bay Road and not far from Northbridge Plaza.

Bates Smart has designed the five-level building which has a mix of just three and four-bedroom apartments. Two EV charging bays will feature in the two-level basement that will cater for 51 cars for both residential and retail use.

The plans were filed by Chinese interests. there had previously been plans for Escarp, across the road at 46 Strathallen Avenue, however they failed to eventuate.

The only recent activity in the off the plan market in Northbridge was with WINIM who in October last year launched Flō, just seven townhomes and five apartments opposite Northbridge Shore Playing Fields and just a few hundred metres down the road from Northbridge Plaza and the popular Warners Park.
