SKY Residences development officially complete following reception of Occupation Certificate

Stage Two of Newcastle’s SKY Residences project officially received its Occupation Certificate (OC) and successful strata registration within recent weeks, marking the conclusion of one of the city’s largest and most iconic residential developments to date.

Consisting of 73 luxury apartments, Sky Residences Stage Two stands 9 storey’s tall and is positioned alongside the 19 storey, 66m tall Stage One tower completed in late 2021.

Completion of the 189-apartment luxury residential development represents a significant milestone for local developer and builder GWH.

“It has been incredible to watch our plans for this site come to life over the last few years", said GWH Managing Director Jonathan Craig.

“SKY Residences is our largest residential project undertaken to date – To successfully deliver such an iconic new development to the Newcastle skyline truly is a phenomenal achievement and one we are all immensely proud of”.

Construction of Sky Residences began in October 2019, with the construction team persevering through some of the toughest operating conditions experienced in recent memory. Despite these challenges, the team managed to keep the development on track, successfully topping out the 19-storey stage one tower in May 2021 before achieving its Occupation Certificate seven months later.

All 189 apartments within the development were sold prior to the project’s completion, demonstrating the continued appetite for apartment living within the Newcastle market.

Designed to allow residents to take full advantage of the inner-city lifestyle its location encourages, SKY includes an array of incredible resident-only facilities including a pool, gym and the rooftop SKY Lounge, a luxurious indoor/outdoor entertaining space providing panoramic views over the CBD and beyond.

“As Newcastle locals, we have a deep understanding of the lifestyle aspects Novocastrians desire to amplify the incredible living experience this city provides. The feedback from our stage one purchasers has been fantastic and I can’t wait for stage two purchasers to experience all that this iconic, new destination has to offer”, added Mr Craig.

A Hunter-based company established and owned by Hunter locals, GWH has been a steadfast presence in the region for over 25 years – with its home-grown knowledge of the market guiding the company from strength to strength. Backed by a strong track record of delivering commercial, industrial and residential projects within our region, GWH are currently working on notable projects including Newcastle’s ONE Apartments and Charlestown’s Macquarie Tower, with construction to begin on both projects by the end of 2022.
