GWH continues investment into the revitalisation of the Newcastle CBD

It was welcomed news for GWH when Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC) announced that we were the successful proponent of the EOI tender for the redevelopment of Darby Plaza.

Our submission and concept proposes an incredible façade design housing a true mixed use development. The proposed development will include retail space activating Darby Plaza, A-grade commercial office spaces, the potential for hotel style accommodation and a mix of residential apartments.

GWH Managing Director, Jonathan Craig welcomed the news as a fantastic opportunity for the local company to continue their investment into the growth and revitalisation of the CBD.

“Strong sales on our other projects gives us every confidence in the local property market and Darby Plaza provides the perfect opportunity to create a place where people can live and work in the heart of the CBD”.

“GWH recognises Darby Plaza as a key site due to its central location and its vital link to Darby St, Hunter St and Honeysuckle precinct.”

“Our vision for a true mixed use development will bring a great opportunity for ground floor retail and commercial offices to activate this area”.

The re-development will also see a continuation of the collaboration between GWH and internationally renowned architects DBI.

“Today’s announcement shows we are committed to the growth of our region and to bringing world class architectural designs to this emerging city”, said Mr Craig.

A Hunter-based company established and owned by Hunter locals, GWH has been a steadfast presence in the region for 22 years – with our home-grown knowledge of the market guiding the company from strength to strength. In the past three months, the company has won the Master Builders Association Award for ‘Apartment of the Year’ for our Hunter St development AERO in Newcastle West and completed The Millhorn Apartments in Wickham.

Currently we are developing and constructing the Centrale Apartments in Broadmeadow and Lake Macquarie’s tallest building Highpoint in Charlestown.
