The Store, Newcastle
Wickham, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia
Our vision for The Store is to create a landmark transport gateway to act as a catalyst for new urban developments in and around Wickham.
We have divided the vast site with series of through-site links and ensured activated edges to the building blocks. At the heart of the project is a sun filled pedestrian oriented ‘Interchange Square’, a place for people-focused activities bordered by cafes and retail precincts.
At the site of the former ‘The Store’ we have planned a modern day trading store. During the weekends this plaza will host a fresh food market and various other community activities. This will create a new meeting place for residents on the site and the surrounding areas. Two residential towers above the Bus Interchange and the Office tower to the east of the site will provide requisite critical mass to make The Interchange alive and active, transforming the development into a truly mixed-used precinct to live, work and play. A highly sustainable proposition at the edge of Newcastle’s city centre.
13,000 sqm commercial tower, 400 apartments + retail, bus interchange and multi level carpark
