Politis Mixed-Use Development Proposal, Newcastle

The L-shaped site of 4,643m2 is bounded by Stewart Avenue to the southeast, Hunter Street to the northeast, a right-of-way to the southwest and the heritage (former) Castlemaine Brewery site to the northwest. The L-shaped brewery site sits adjacent to the site along Hunter Street.

Birdwood Park is located on the opposite side of Stewart Avenue and towards the southern end of the site. A carwash separates the site from a new five storey office building (under construction), which terminates the block at the intersection of Stewart Avenue and King Street.

The proposed redevelopment of the site at 12 Stewart Avenue, Newcastle West for a five storey commercial building and a six storey carpark has evolved in consultation with the design review panel comprising Newcastle Council’s Urban Design Consultative Group (UDCG) and Olivia Hyde, representing the Government Architect’s Office.
