New Hotel Planned For Honeysuckle Precinct

Plans to build a new hotel in the Honeysuckle precinct have taken the next step.

The development application for the Little National Hotel have been lodged today.

The blueprints include a 147-room hotel and close to 60 residential apartments, as well as 100 m2 of retail space on the ground floor.

Around 60 jobs will be created during the $40.5 million dollar project.

Hunter Development Corporation Acting Chief Executive Valentina Misevska says construction could begin as early as mid-2018 if everything goes to plan.

"We're building a connected city with better transport options and opportunities for people to stay, live and play in the heart of Newcastle."

"The location of this hotel - right on the doorstep of the interchange and the waterfront precinct in Honeysuckle really places it in a unique position."
