Affordable housing on Newcastle rail corridor land for "key workers"

MICHAEL McGOWAN
18 Apr 2017, 6 p.m.




THE state government will set aside 30 affordable housing units on the former heavy rail corridor for “key workers” including police, nurses and teachers – but it wants the city’s council to help foot the bill.

Housing Minister Anthony Roberts on Tuesday unveiled plans first reported in the Newcastle Herald in March to provide housing for “people on moderate incomes who make up our workforce” on the now-vacant corridor between Merewether Street and the former Civic Station.

The proposal involves asking Newcastle City Council to spend $3 million of residual funding from a state and federal grant called Building Better Cities to fund the project alongside the Hunter Development Corporation.

“Unfortunately the money’s been waiting there for more than 10 years, so I’m asking the Newcastle council to come on board with us because we can’t afford to wait around 10 years to continue these affordable housing developments,” Mr Roberts said.

The Herald reported in March that Hunter Development Corporation CEO Michael Cassel had raised the idea of the council contributing the funding to build a block of affordable housing units that would then be managed by a community housing organisation.

Meet the interchange’s newest neighbour

CARRIE FELLNER

It’s seven storeys high, worth $22 million and branded ‘The Millhorn’.

At least six new developments are either under construction or in the pipeline for the precinct between the Newcastle transport interchange and Throsby Street.

The latest to be unveiled by Colliers International, The Millhorn, includes 40 one- and two-bedroom apartments on Wickham Street.

The bottom floor will be devoted to commercial space and Colliers Director Dane Crawford said he expected it would eventually house “bespoke” retailers.

“I see it as likely to be a...small little cafe or a hole-in-the-wall deli,” he said.

Deposits have now been taken on all of the apartments, which are expected to be completed in late 2018. The homes have been designed by renowned architect John Streeter.

Across the road from the Millhorn will be the WestEnd, a 122-apartment development. On the next block is Bishopsgate, which will bring 37 new apartments online next year. It’s understood further projects will be announced in coming months.

Hunter director of the Property Council Andrew Fletcher said the high rise was part of a phenomenon known as “transport orientated development”.

The anticipated construction of the Hunter Politis Project will commence shortly as the piling rig has arrived on site! With the carpark completed, the piles will begin and we will soon see the building emerge! The development offers five storeys of premium office and retail space on 12 Stewart Avenue, Newcastle West.
