Construction commences at SKY Residences

On Tuesday 1st October GWH officially announced the commencement of construction on SKY Residences. A ceremonial 'Turning of the SOD' was held on-site with Newcastle Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes and Councilor John Church.

SKY Residences was launched to market in June 2018. Despite a difficult period for the national property market, our decades of local experience gave us every confidence in the strength of the Newcastle market and we forged onwards. With SKY now under construction GWH continue our 100% completion rate on our developments. 

“This development is creating local jobs, dramatically improving a long dormant section of the City and adding 180 new residences right near the Civic cultural precinct”.

Nuatali Nelmes, Newcastle Lord Mayor

With initial ground works almost complete, piling and excavation of the basement levels is set to begin this week. The building will really begin to take shape when the tower crane is installed early 2020 and the building starts to come out of the ground. Construction of  SKY Residences 19 storey tower will continue until late 2021. 

“Being one of a handful of developments with a 19 storey DA means residents within SKY are going to have some sensational views over the Harbour, Stockton, Merewether and the Watagan Mountains”

Jonathan Craig , Managing Director GWH

Sky features over 1,100 square metres of luxury facilities available to all residents. The spectacular 19th Floor SKY Lounge rooftop space is a common area, giving every resident access to spectacular views and contemporary lifestyle amenities with outdoor lounge terrace, barbecue and dining area. Indoors there’s a lounge area, fireplace and dining facilities with separate bar area, fridge and large-screen TV. SKY also features a heated outdoor pool and fully-equipped gym & fitness centre.

Construction of SKY Residences continues GWH’s 100% completion rate, having already delivered 324 homes since 2017.
