The Docks closed to commercial trade back in the 1970’s and the area struggled for a few decades to find a place in the scheme of things. Then along came the apartment and townhouse redevelopments and now just about every piece of the jigsaw is in place. A stroll around the harbour or a trip on one of the ferries on a summer’s day will give you an idea of the importance the harbour area now has in the cities heart. Waterside apartments and townhouses are popular with professional couples and particularly the downsizing or retiree market. A fair number of these apartments are available to rent via the investor market.
