Newcastle City Council has approved a $110 million, 100-metre skyscraper in Newcastle West.
Developer Thirdi Group plans to begin construction of Dairy Farmers Towers at 924 Hunter Street in the coming months, and complete the project by late 2024.
The mixed-use development will include 184 one, two and three-bedroom apartments as well as commercial and retail space.
The development will retain the heritage-listed milk bottle and clock towers that are synonymous with the former Dairy Farmers building.
“We are thrilled to receive our development approval,” Thirdi director Luke Berry said.
“We wanted Dairy Farmers Towers to be a West End icon, a landmark reborn to create a new chapter as a great place to live, work and play.”
The two towers will stand at 99 metres and 90 metres tall respectively, while the commercial and retail side of the development will be contained to an adjoining five-storey building.
Thirdi bought the site from developer Jeff McCloy in 2020.
