The award-winning Verve towers consist of two 20-storey, north-facing slender towers and a linear podium addressing King Street, bringing a distinguished presence to Newcastle’s streetscape and skyline.
Located within the new urban district planned for Newcastle’s long neglected west end, the development stands 66m tall and was designed in partnership with Hill Thalis Urban Design and Architecture.
Each of the 208 apartments is designed to fit its specific situation within the overall site plan, providing light, air, amenity, privacy, and alternatively a green, screened or panoramic outlook. With 26 different types of apartments, Verve residences offer diversity in size, layout and affordability.
The grand entry concrete portal celebrates the residents’ experience of homecoming. This 5-storey board-form concrete wall with hand-crafted, in-laid tiles is the first in a sequence of public art components. This concept interprets Newcastle’s mining history and geological substrate, as seen in the sculpted cliffs along the oceanfront.
The small footprint of the towers, generous podium landscaping, splayed balconies and articulation of the base means that many residences enjoy corner positions, with extended sunshine and extensive views.
Each floor contains a maximum of six apartments, all featuring generous open-plan living spaces with abundant natural light. Dual aspect and corner apartments offer sweeping vistas, while garden apartments open to a superb podium park.
Inside, the magnificent outlook is matched by quality in every detail. Interiors are light, bright and airy with full-height glazing. Elegant kitchens feature stone benchtops and Miele appliances, and bedrooms are sophisticated and comfortable.
Verve’s primary frontage is to King Street to the south. The north-east boundary adjoins Cottage Creek, which has the potential to become an important new public connection northward to the harbourfront, and southward to National Park.
Situated in the heart of the city, Verve offers unrivalled access to popular dining precincts, entertainment, and Newcastle's famous beaches and foreshore. Everyday living is easy with Marketown shopping centre, ALDI, Coles and Woolworths at your doorstep. Public transport abounds with buses running down your street, Newcastle's light rail and the newly completed Wickham transport interchange just a short walk away. Galleries, theatres, museums and Newcastle University's city campus and TAFE are also close.
