Storage & Parking North Shore

The northern metropolitan of Sydney, popularly known as the North Shore, is the residential area that stretches a broad swathe of land from the northern edge of Sydney Harbour up to the Hornsby Plateau. Despite the name, a large proportion of suburbs in North Shore are located inland, a small distance from the ocean. Residents enjoy the oceanic climate in summer and a cooler temperature in the winter months compared to other surrounding areas in Sydney.

North Shore is divided into two groups of suburbs: The Upper and Lower North Shore. The region's largest central business district is at North Sydney where many international companies situate their headquarters. North Shore has large commercial centres such as the Westfield Chatswood and Chatswood Chase.

From the modern urban skyline filled with skyscrapers, residents can also enjoy the small parks and areas of forest adjacent to and within residential areas such as the Lane Cove National Park and the Garigal National Park. It is also home to famous Sydney landmarks including the Kirribilli House, Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The North Shore is never short of festivities either, for example the month-long Willoughby Spring Festival and Granny Smith Festival. Enjoy live music, performances and market stalls of homemade goods.

Parking and Storage

North Shore living is both convenient and comfortable. This region is a mix of commercial and residential with great schools, modern business areas, loads of shopping opportunities, parks, gardens, high-quality restaurants and great views. This attracts a high volume of individuals, locally and internationally, to travel, visit and even move to the suburbs of North Shore. As a major transport hub, the region is also extremely popular for commuters.

Predictably, North Shore is seeing more high-density housing and a steep rise in property prices as its population continues to grow. This increase is particularly evident in North Sydney, which is a sizable commercial centre in its own right; Chatswood, one of the North Shore's major commercial and retail districts; and Hornsby.

Whilst high-density living allows more people to find suitable accommodations, it does come with less storage space and car parking opportunites. The need for alternative storage and parking solutions is what we, Spacer seek to solve by optimizing existing space.
