Renowned property developer Miller Property Corporation announces plans for a stunning contemporary
development to reach new levels, the likes of which are unprecedented in other inner city residential developments.
A Development Application was lodged in April with Newcastle City Council for the construction of this multi-storey, mixed used building at 464 King Street ewcastle. Occupying 4585 sq metres, the development integrates the benefits of contemporary city apartment living with architectural design excellence, in visually stunning dual towers to be known as Verve Residences.
Offering a diverse range of residential apartment types, sizes and configurations Verve Residences has city living options available to suit a range of budgets; from 1, 2, 3 bedroom residences through to 5 bedroom
sub penthouses and penthouse. With 197 residences in total, these will be the most spacious, stylish and diverse homes in the sky ever offered in Newcastle with unparalleled quality and finish.
Verve Residences will boast unprecedented luxury and security with an integrated building management and concierge service. Generous communal garden spaces will become great attractions for future residents, assisting to maintain a sense of community and allow for easy socialisation with visitors and other residents.
The inclusion of the development’s retail and commercial spaces will add diversity to the area and the proximity of Verve Residences to a major transport hub promotes exceptional live/work opportunities. The location will also provide extreme shopping amenity to residents with Marketown nearby. These features create an opportunity for Verve Residences to quickly become one of Newcastle’s most desirable addresses.
Majestic rather than imposing, Verve Residences have a distinctive architectural character, scale and silhouette that will be an appropriate addition to Newcastle’s urban streetscape and skyline. A design
feature unseen in other Newcastle residential or commercial projects, Verve Residences features two fan shaped towers, linked by an internal ‘podium’ space with private recreational areas and gardens.
The developer, Miller Property Corporation, has extensive development experience and a strong history with Newcastle, dating back to 1974 with the development of The Castle Tavern but most recently with The Darby
(Darby Street, Cooks Hill) and Eclipse (Union Street, Cooks Hill).
The architectural design is a collaborative effort between the award winning teams of, local firm CKDS Architecture and Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects and has been developed with extensive consultation with Council’s Design Review Panel and the Government Architects appointed Design
Excellence Panel. The design is a considered response to the scale and character of the site and the area’s urbanity.
Through the resolution of these urban, architectural, environmental and social design considerations, the proposed design for Verve Residences will be an outstanding addition to the existing urban landscape, while signalling the revitalisation of the central area of the Newcastle CBD.
