A RARE MIXED USED DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY IN THE HEART OF A REVITALISED NEWCASTLE

Led by Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC), the ‘Revitalising Newcastle’ program is bringing people back to the city centre by creating more jobs, new homes and vibrant spaces for the community to enjoy. Rail Bridge Row represents a new stage in Newcastle’s revitalisation: a rare undeveloped parcel of land (approx. 4,125 square metres of B4 mixed use zoning), situated right in the city’s retail and civic heart.

THE NSW GOVERNMENT IS INVESTING MORE THAN $650 MILLION TO DELIVER PUBLIC SPACES, LIGHT RAIL AND A NEW PUBLIC TRANSPORT INTERCHANGE IN NEWCASTLE. 

THE OPPORTUNITY

HCCDC created the name ‘Rail Bridge Row’ as a nod to the historic Australian Agricultural Company (A.A. Company) Bridge that once crossed the rail corridor in that location to take coal to the harbour.


Featuring 155 (approx.) metres of street frontage on Hunter Street and adjacent to Australia’s first completely wire-free light rail system, Rail Bridge Row is a key site for the activation of a vibrant pedestrian area.

Rail Bridge Row offers developers the opportunity to be part of one of the State’s most significant urban transformation initiatives in recent times. HCCDC is seeking an exciting, innovative and thoughtful vision for this unique site paired with the capability to deliver an exceptional built outcome.

With potential for retail, hospitality, office space, and other commercial ventures on ground level, and first floor residential suitability, Rail Bridge Row is a true mixed use development opportunity.

Be front and centre of the new Newcastle — don’t miss this chance to develop and deliver a creative architectural solution that honours the rich heritage of the site and surrounds and acts as the face of a revitalised, thriving and and future proof civic precinct.
