Colliers International director Dane Crawford believes the East End development will “put Newcastle on the world map”.
Iris Capital unveiled the first stage of the $750million, four-stage project along Hunter Street on Thursday evening and 155 apartments will go on the market on September 16.
Mr Crawford is managing sales for East End and said early interest in the redevelopment along Hunter Street was unprecedented.
“It’s at a level that I’ve never experienced,” Mr Crawford said. “Overwhelmingly a lot of the interest has been localised because they obviously know about it, but we’re getting interest on a national scale, which I think says a lot about the actual design of what is going to be delivered here.”
A mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments will go on sale with a starting price of $490,000.
The East End display suite at 185 Hunter Street, the former David Jones building, will open at 10am on September 16.
