Project Focus: Potts Point Development Launched As Lockout Laws Drive Price Surge


Sitting on the corner of Bayswater and Ward Roads Potts Point, and developed by listed Singaporean property developer Roxy Pacific, sits The Hensley - two heritage terraces with 44 apartments, beautifully updated with modern renders and converted into stunning contemporary homes but with luxurious old- world high ceilings. Behind this historic façade, a striking contemporary structure graduates from brick to modern steel and glass with architecture in one of Australia's most renowned suburbs.

Some local agents have reported that Mike Baird's lockout laws have created a surge in sales prices in the region once known for late night partying. In early May, a two-bedroom apartment on Bayswater Road, Potts Point, reportedly sold for $1.63 million – $230,000 over reserve – proving the area as an emerging residential hot spot and an intriguing case study in the developmental effects of Sydney's lockout laws.

The Hensley makes a bold architectural statement – a one-of-a-kind addition to Potts Point with a communal rooftop terrace with views to the city.

Marketing agents CBRE could not be contacted for price information.
