A development application has been lodged for a $350 million mixed-use urban renewal project in Cronulla’s CBD.
The proposal, submitted by Sydney-based Sammut Group, seeks to breathe new life into the retail/commercial Cronulla hub by transforming a block along the northern end of the mall.
Sammut has amalgamated all the properties on the proposed site, which includes a mixture of old retail and commercial premises known as the Northern Gateway site.
It spans 5,225 square metres between Croydon Street and Abel Place, making it one of the largest commercial sites in a southern beachside suburb of Sydney.
“This is a game-changing development that will provide the catalyst for the future revitalisation and growth of the Cronulla CBD,” said Sammut Group director Allen Sammut.
“It’s a pivotal project for the area, particularly the many businesses in Cronulla that have been struggling in recent years.
“We’re extremely excited and eager to see our vision for this iconic gateway site come to life, ushering in a new era of optimism and opportunity for Cronulla.”

Set to be called Vue, the development will comprise of 112 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, along with 885sqm of commercial space, including Harris Farm Markets, with the proposed Cronulla store set to become their flagship.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this landmark development to launch a flagship store and is a first for the shire,” said Luke Harris, Co-CEO of Harris Farm Markets.
“Harris Farm Markets has been looking for an appropriate location in the shire for many years and now believe in a partnership with Sammut Group and that Vue will be an iconic project not only for the Shire but nationally.
“The store would be the largest Harris Farm store in Sydney and will introduce new food concepts we haven’t explored before.”
