Newcastle’s most iconic landmark building presents huge opportunity
Colliers International Newcastle have been appointed to advertise Expressions of Interest for the former Newcastle Post Office – the city’s most iconic building, which has been standing since 1900.
This former post office, which was built from 1900 to 1903 sits proud and timeless on the corner of both Hunter and Bolton Street, in the Eastern precinct of Newcastle’s CBD.
The significant land holding of 1,113sqm features the grand two level building which boasts high ceilings throughout the ground floor and mezzanine areas. The total building area represents 1,374 sqm plus a large basement area.
“This is an opportunity to re-purpose an iconic building to create public interaction and patronage under an endless list of possible uses – it’s a monumental leap forward in an already emerging and rejuvenating city,” said Michael Chapman, Senior Executive, Colliers International Newcastle.
The site’s flexible B4 Mixed-Use zoning allows for multiple and varying uses including Hospitality, Retail, Commercial and Residential (STCA).
“It is a truly rare opportunity for both local and national interests to consider this iconic landmark building and recreate its identity into a focal point of Newcastle’s future development history” said Adam Leacy, Director, Commercial Sales and Leasing at Colliers International Newcastle.
Colliers International Newcastle are offering the former Newcastle Post Office to the market via an Expressions of Interest campaign, closing 16 November 2017.
