This suburb was known for its boat building and maritime activities. Now, it is predominantly a residential suburb, made up of a variety of housing stock from small stone cottages, terrace houses to high rise apartments, all enjoying outstanding views of the harbour.

Blues Point Tower designed by the late Harry Seidler in 1961, is a well known landmark for McMahons Point. It was Australia's tallest residential building until 1970.
