A three million dollar, first of its kind, development for Tea Gardens has been unveiled by a Newcastle businessman who grew up in the area.
Trade Safe & Store is a new, 4,000sqm business park at 3-7 Winta Road.
According to developer Steve Lawler, it is a business park with a difference that will benefit a region that is experiencing a shortfall of quality facilities for purchase.
Mr Lawler said the facility will incorporate business and industrial spaces, as well as much needed local trade and storage units alongside a cafe and car wash.
The site will have 24-hour security and an onsite manager.
“Recent housing developments such as Palm Lake have brought more people to the area, which is also increasing business opportunities in the area,” Mr Lawler said.
“The new IGA supermarket in Hawks Nest as well as the new developments before Council shows that the Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest area is about to hit a boom period,” he said.
“There is definitely a general sense of confidence about the area and it is great to be developing something for the town in which I grew up.”
Newcastle New Projects, a division of PRDnationwide Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, has been appointed to market and sell the development off the plan.
PRD managing director Mark Kentwell said the facility was perfect for local tradies for stock and equipment storage as well as an office.
Units range in size from 18.1 to 99 square metres and are priced from $45,000 to $276,000.
There is on-site parking and the site is broadband ready with fibre optic cabling.
