The builder for Thirdi’s Dairy Farmers Towers in Newcastle has been announced.
Multi-award-winning construction company Decode will lead the build of the project, which will comprise 180 luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments in the NSW city’s West End.
An iCIRT-rated and multi-accredited builder, Sydney-based Decode’s projects include the Grande Pyrmont Bay Estate, comprising 11 high-end terrace homes surrounded by some of Sydney’s oldest heritage-listed buildings, including the Terminus Hotel.
It was also responsible for the $500-million Burwood Grand—the transformation of 10,000sq m of the Sydney suburb’s commercial centre into 498 apartments, 16 retail spaces and 4000sq m of council chambers across three buildings and a total of 54 storeys.
Thirdi said it had appointed Decode due to its “extensive experience in delivering excellence in construction and history of transforming and restoring historical sites into quality-built environments”.
Thirdi co-founder Luke Berry said Decode’s Grande Pyrmont had drawn their attention to the builder.
“We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the build at Grande Pyrmont and we have wanted to work with Decode ever since.
“After reviewing Decode’s projects within Sydney and the surrounding areas, we gained an understanding of the team’s ability to deliver a quality product that all stakeholders were proud of.”
Dairy Farmers Towers was approved in June last year and will include communal green spaces, a state-of-the-art gym, an elevated north-facing outdoor swimming pool and sundeck, a wine bar and cellar, as well as an exclusive residents-only shared work hub.
In an nod to Newcastle’s history, according to the developers, the project will also reimagine the heritage-listed glass milk bottle and clock towers as part of a pedestrianised, broader public art installation.
Dairy Farmers Towers’ apartments were 75 per cent sold, Berry said.
Thirdi is one of the largest providers of Specialist Disability Accommodation apartments along the East Coast of Australia, partnering with numerous Specialist Independent Living Advisors to provide suitable accommodation in their large-scale developments, including Dairy Farmers Towers, which will deliver 10 SDA apartments.
Decode will be onsite in the coming weeks upon completion of early works at Dairy Farmers Towers.
