Looking: Renew Newcastle

22 Feb

Since posting the other day about Torrestrasse166 in Berlin and whether a similar concept would work in Sydney, I’ve been contacted by the guys at Renew Newcastle who have started a similar project in the steel city.

Unfortunately I missed yesterday’s launch but judging from their website they’ve already made great progress, with six properties renovated and ready to house budding artists, photographers, designers and architects. They’ve been very smart about getting attention by using a Facebook Group and have attracted the attention of local media including the Newcastle Star and The Sydney Morning Herald. I’ll be following their progress with great interest and hope to get up north at some stage soon to check it out in person.
