The famed Queens Wharf Tower remains on track to be demolished some time before November.

Newcastle City Council has lodged a development application to remove the 40-metre tower, after failing to find a new home for it.

It'll be pulled apart in four pieces over a couple of days.

Councillors voted last year to demolish the tower, due to mounting maintenance costs and safety concerns.

Council expects the demolition job to cost about $300,000.
