About the project
The Store is a vibrant NSW government workplace hub in Newcastle’s central business district (CBD), within walking distance of train and light rail services, retail facilities and the city’s sprawling coastal public spaces.
The 9,400m2 modern hub has serviced the government agencies since 2021.
- Modern, sustainable A-grade workplace accommodation supporting government employees working in a hybrid setting to deliver high-quality outcomes for the people of NSW.
- Supports the development of Newcastle’s transport interchange on the former Store site.
- Agency consolidation promotes collaboration, increases efficiencies, and supports the flexibility to adapt to changing government requirements.
- Improved environmental outcomes with 5-star NABERS Energy, 4-star NABERS Water and 5 -star Greenstar ratings.
The NSW Government purchased the former Newcastle and Suburban Co-operative Society Limited site in 2015.
Property and Development NSW (PDNSW) conducted a tender process in 2017 and selected the Doma Group to develop the site to deliver a sustainable and future-focused government workplace hub. Charter Hall now owns the building.
