$55 million dollars will be spent transforming the Honeysuckle waterfront, including the planting of more than 150 trees.
The Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation has today released a blueprint for public space along the harbourside - Worth Place Park West, Cottage Creek, Tree of Knowledge Park and the Waterfront Promenade.
“These include seawall works to underpin the future public domain, the delivery of superior landscaping, and the realignment of Honeysuckle Drive to help mitigate any future flooding issues in the precinct,” HCCDC chief executive Michael Cassel said.
“Through this plan, we will be linking one side of the city to another, with attractive and wide promenades stretching from the Marina, through Honeysuckle and along Bathers Way to Merewether Beach,” said Mr Cassel.
“Newcastle is a truly attractive destination and into the future we will have superior walkways that will rival other popular coastal walks.”
Meantime a draft design has been released of the next apartment block to be built in Honeysuckle, across the road from the Hunter Water building.
'Horizon' will feature 105 apartments and retail space.
