It has been a big year for developments in Newcastle and there are plenty more to come with the city’s tallest apartment complex reaching completion, more plans for Honeysuckle unveiled and council approving the rezoning of the city’s former heavy rail corridor during the week.
The council’s decision on Tuesday night will pave the way for a mix of open space, university buildings and residential and commercial development on the strip of land between Worth Place and Newcastle station.
Also announced this week was Doma Group’s selection to deliver the next big waterfront build at Honeysuckle.
Hunter Development Corporation signed off on Doma’s winning proposal for a $35 million apartment development at 35 Honeysuckle Drive – one of the last pieces of waterfront land in the former industrial precinct.
The proposal, designed by SJB, features 92 apartments and more than 1500 square metres of retail space.
GWH Build’s newest multi-story residential development AERO on 770 Hunter Street has been completed and settlements are being taken and residents moving in. It is located at 770 Hunter Street and is currently the tallest building in Newcastle at 14 storeys high.
A $46 million development for Adamstown, The Foundry, has been unveiled. It will front Brunker Road and Date Street and comprise 84 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
There will be an internal courtyard and on-site gymnasium.
PRDnationwide Newcastle & Lake Macquarie’s project marketing division, Newcastle New Projects, is marketing the development and have opened expressions of interest. Prices will range from $350,000 to $800,000.
The Foundry is the latest development by Bloc, the Canberra-based builder also behind the Water’s Edge in Warners Bay.
On a much smaller scale, and much lower to the ground, only two townhouses remain in a new development at 10 High Street, Waratah.
Carlo Rossi, of Grand Designs Property, is marketing No.1 and No.4 for $679,000 and $660,000.
They both have three bedrooms, three bathrooms, double garages and entertaining spaces.
