World leading defence, research & aerospace infrastructure is planned for Newcastle.
Williamtown, NSW, November 2023 – Astra Aerolab is set to be the world’s most uplifting defence, aerospace and innovation precinct with the development of new state-of-the-art commercial and industrial facilities that could attract tenants in the areas of defence, advanced manufacturing, aviation, software development, and data infrastructure.
Commercial Collective have been exclusively appointed as leasing agents on this innovative new development, led by the experienced project team of Byrne Tran &Jared Harris.
Located within the Astra Aerolab aerospace precinct in Williamtown, the expansive sites have been architecturally designed with long-term sustainability and will act as a unique eco-system where diverse talents, knowledge and innovation work together to deliver excellence. Astra Aerolab is a business facility co-located with Newcastle Airport and adjacent to RAAF Base Williamtown, offering unparalleled connectivity for those collaborating on globally significant projects. The industrial site spans 1,000 to 2,000 sqm* with joint office space and the commercial site encompasses six floors with ample car parking and ground-floor retail outlets, ideal for food and beverage operators. The development is due for completion in 2025 with leasing opportunities now available by Expression of Interest exclusively through Commercial Collective, Newcastle’s local commercial and industrial experts.
“I have a passion for bringing new business opportunities to the local Hunter region, not just now, but for future generations to come. This development presents a significant opportunity for Newcastle, fostering innovation and technology within the region” said Commercial Collective Partner Byrne Tran.
“It’s great to see such well-designed facilities coming to Newcastle. Given the shortage of commercial A Grade office space in Williamtown and the increase in demand for highly rated ESG buildings within Newcastle, it is likely that these suites will be popular with the right tenants” said Commercial Collective Agent Jared Harris.
“It is incredibly exciting to be appointed on this project and afforded the opportunity to facilitate the activation of Astra Aerolab” said CEO Dane Crawford. “This new aerospace precinct will create an unparalleled ecosystem for new and existing Hunter based businesses to strengthen and support each other Astra Aerolab will be a catalyst for long lasting prosperity within the region and we at Commercial Collective are proud to be a part of it,” said Mr Crawford.
Commercial Collective is passionate about bringing opportunities to the region through commercial property. It is an exciting opportunity for us to represent a development of this calibre complemented with outstanding lifestyle benefits.
