Work has begun paving the way for a two-tower development lauded as a gamechanger for NSW’s second-largest city.
Dairy Farmers Towers are set to rise in Newcastle’s West End with demolition works now under way and construction due to be completed in the last quarter of 2024.
The development by Thirdi will deliver 184 one, two and three-bedroom apartments across the two towers as well as a five-storey residents-only shared work hub with more than 1600sq m of commercial and retail space.
The towers will include eight specialist disability accommodation apartments.
Dairy Farmers Towers will also include cabana pool areas with a lap pool, a wine bar and cellar, a state-of-the-art gymnasium and a pilates studio, as well as multiple function rooms.
More than 70 per cent of the development has sold.
“We’re thrilled to be able to begin construction during a time of challenges for the industry and want to ensure our buyers that Thirdi is pressing ahead with our construction schedule so they can be in their highly anticipated new homes as soon as possible,” Thirdi co-founder Luke Berry said.
“The West End is quickly becoming Newcastle’s beckoning lifestyle hub, complete with an eclectic mix of urban flair and character. Dairy Farmers Towers joins our stable of West End projects and has already become a legacy project for everyone to enjoy.”
The site was once home to Dairy Farmers, one of Australia’s largest dairy producers. Thirdi has reimagined the heritage-listed milk bottle and clock towers as part of the project through a pedestrianised, broader public art installation.
Thirdi is collaborating with CoPosit to allow purchasers to buy a property with just $10,000 in savings and the remainder of the deposit is paid in weekly instalments.
