Construction | NEWCASTLE | Verve Residences | 2 x 20st/66m | Residential | Site Prep

this deserves a thread at 20storeys

Verve Residences, unveiled on Wednesday by Miller Property Corporation, also involves a reimagining of the Cottage Creek stormwater channel as a public boardwalk canal linking King and Hunter streets.

Occupying a 4585-square-metre site fronting King Street across from Marketown, the development will comprise two 20-storey towers each soaring to 66 metres and two smaller blocks of five and eight storeys looking in to a central podium, with retail and commercial space at street level.

The environmentally conscious design affords nearly all apartments a north-facing aspect and will allow solar connection throughout. It includes landscaped public areas at street and podium level, including a pathway along Stony Creek with potential to link King and Hunter streets.

A development application was lodged this week with Newcastle City Council. If approved, work will begin in this year with the buildings to be completed by 2018. The apartments are expected to sell for between $385,00 for a one-bedroom unit to more than $3.5 million for a 300-square-metre penthouse.

I imagine that will be far too tall for Newcastle and will be knocked down to a more appropriate 8-12 stories.

Verve apartments construction set to begin as Bloc appointed builder of residences. CARRIE FELLNER


Construction is about to begin on buildings that will soar 66 metres into the sky to become Newcastle’s tallest residential twin towers.

Bloc has been unveiled as the builder of the $130 million Verve residences by Miller Property Corporation.

At a special function for buyers last week, it was also announced work would begin within two months.

“We're ready to rock and roll,” developer Warwick Miller said. “We’re looking at a completion date of mid- 2019.”

Mr Miller said council permitted taller buildings in the west end because there were fewer heritage constraints and they did not affect the view from the cathedral.

Once complete, the development on King Street will feature 197 units and a new boardwalk canal link to Hunter Street.

Two smaller blocks of five and eight storeys will look in to a central podium, with retail and commercial space at street level.

Bloc is based in Canberra but has recently finished the Edition apartments at Honeysuckle and is about to embark on another project at Wickham.

Managing director Andrew Redwin said the Verve’s height and views would make it a unique part of Newcastle’s skyline.

“This is higher than what we’re used to building but the height is not hard,” he said. “The hard bit is actually coming out of the ground.”

Buyers Steve and Carmel Tremble were at the announcement and said they were thrilled a date was now locked in.

“We were one of the first ones to purchase back last July,” Mr Tremble said.

“We’ll be very happy to see it come out of the ground and it will really give us something to look forward to. We can start to sell our own property and get ready to move in.”

The couple have spent their entire married lives in Maryland but decided to have a complete lifestyle change for their retirement.

They have purchased a three-bedroom apartment on the 11th floor so they can have their grandchildren and friends from outside Newcastle to stay.

“We liked the idea this was in a flat area and also the Newcastle interchange, it’s very handy to that,” Mr Tremble said.

“We also wanted the two car spaces which are hard to come by,” Ms Tremble added.

Funny how in an increasingly secular society, views to and from a cathedral form one of the pillars of Novocastrian townplanning!

The top of tower on the cathedral is RL74m, but i think the ridge line of the nave is what the cathedrals height is compared to which is RL59m equate to CBds height control. so 60m is about 18storeys for the eastern end. i think they can go to 30storeys/90m at western end?

Arena is Rl74m

THE Berejiklian government has flagged a major overhaul of the Broadmeadow sport and entertainment precinct, unveiling plans to open up parts of the site for private commercial and residential development as well as redeveloping the city’s outdated entertainment centre.

On Wednesday Sports Minister Stuart Ayres released the long-awaited draft concept plan for the 63-hectare site at Broadmeadow.

It includes plans to relocate the Newcastle harness racing track – tipped to make way for a $20 million rugby league centre of excellence – and construction of a new hotel, entertainment centre and a “consolidated sports facility” that could include a new aquatic centre or multi-level car park.

The document, which Mr Ayres said would kick-start a three-month community consultation period, comes amid speculation that the state government has agreed to help jointly fund a $20 million rugby league centre of excellence at the site of the Newcastle International Paceway.

Mr Ayres wouldn’t confirm that on Wednesday, but said the proposal was “being considered by the government as we speak”.

The new concept plan lays out a number of potential development options which Mr Ayres said were “the start of the conversation” about the precinct’s future.

“We’ve got a canvas that has part of the painting on it but it’s by no means finished,” he said.

Part of that painting is a clear invitation for private development on parts of the site, which is made up of state-owned land.

The 15-page plan includes a section on “commercial opportunities”, and suggests the possibility of a “small commercial development” on the corner of Lamton and Bavin Roads, “medium-rise residential” development on land at the edge of the precinct and “a tourist and business hotel” likely on the corner of Griffiths and Turton Road.

Mr Ayres also hinted that any redevelopment of the entertainment centre could be led by the private sector, and said developers needed “clear rules of play” about where they could invest.

“We don’t want to preempt or force one hand on top of the other, we don’t want to say that this has to be public and this has to be private, so it’s very important we have a transparent conversation now and work through a fairly diligent budget process,” he said.

None of the possible developments in the concept plan are costed, because, Mr Ayres said, it would “preempt” the views of the community.

He said developing an over-arching plan for what the community wanted would allow the government to “establish a business case for each public sector investment required [and] secondly it allows us to talk to people who might want to bring private sector development into the site”.

He also said the government wanted to hear the community’s view on the possibility of residential development on parts of the site.

“If residential [development] is part of that solution that the public and council is keen to pursue then that’s what we want to hear,” he said.

Newcastle MP Tim Crakanthorp said he was pleased the government had released a “co-ordinated plan”.

“With [the] government spending billions on stadiums in Sydney, it is critical that Newcastle does not miss out,” he said.

The government has identified Broadmeadow as one of the region’s “strategic centres”, and Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald said the plan would “transform the area into a vibrant sporting and entertainment hub for Newcastle”

“These upgrades will also expand Newcastle’s growing events market, helping to boost national and international visitor numbers, creating new jobs and economic opportunities in the process,” he said.

More to come
