Merivale adds The Collaroy to growing portfolio

Posted in 14 Aug 2017

Merivale is expanding its Northern Beaches portfolio with the acquisition of The Collaroy. The iconic beachside local joins Papi Chulo in Manly and The Newport on the Pittwater estuary.

Justin Hemmes, CEO of Merivale, said: “The Collaroy is in a truly spectacular location, with sweeping views of the ocean and sand literally at its doorstep. This is a really exciting addition to the group, and one that will beautifully complement what we’re creating at The Newport”.

“I love the Northern Beaches; it is a magnificent area and we are incredibly proud to be part of it”.

The Newport launched the first phase of its landmark redevelopment in April last year, transforming the expansive outdoor property into a vibrant gathering place for the community. The second phase, featuring an indoor restaurant and bar, is set to open this summer. Executive Chef Jordan Toft is currently recruiting for his kitchen team.

Plans for The Collaroy will be announced in due course.
