The changing face of a local

Late in 2018 we announced we would bring boutique apartment living to Lambton, with the development of the old Snake Gully Hotel site into a haven for residents with 121Elder.

The 121Elder development has brought with it an enthusiasm, excitement and a drive to rejuvenate and enhance Lambton’s main street shopping precinct.

Our GWH team has been on site since the first week of February and has now completed demolition, saving time from the construction schedule to get the build underway as soon as possible. The site is certainly looking a little different.

Jonathan Craig, GWH Managing Director says that ‘in the construction phase of a new development, there are a handful of big moments that get the team really excited. They are the moments when the combined efforts of the team become a reality. When the physical evidence of the work is right in front of you.’

“This month we have seen one of these moments for the 121Elder team, with the start of the changing face of a block that has for many years held significance for many Lambton locals” Jonathan said. 

The project has had many people talking, with interest in the residential, retail and commercial opportunities having been strong and positive, producing many quick sales. Both retail and residential apartments have been snapped up by local Newcastle and Hunter buyers. 121Elder will be the new ‘local’, but of a different kind.

The development’s design recognises the community heart of the area, offering an urban retreat for both its residents and the local community alike.

Each residential property includes a balcony or courtyard, plus access to a private BBQ and entertaining courtyard and private rooftop viewing deck. For the greater community, modern and welcoming street facing retail outlets are designed with hospitality and boutique product offerings in mind.

Opportunities are still available at both the Grainger Street standalone commercial building and within the Elder Street component of the development, with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and the retail suites now selling.

Construction is set to commence on the development in March, which in total includes 15 residential 3 retail suites, and a stand-alone commercial site, all scheduled for completion early in 2020.
