Sam Arnaout, CEO of Iris Capital, was first charmed by Newcastle as a whole, due to “the beaches and its natural charm, that organic beauty – the city has its own story to tell.
“But when you hone in on East End as a stand-alone precinct, you can’t not be caught up with the nostalgic, heritage feel that it has and the charm that it offers – it’s quite beautiful.
“All the good things you’re hearing about in the press, they’ve all really stimulated the local economy and driven people like myself up to Newcastle. The confidence is there and people really are believing and getting behind the Newcastle story.”
Since 1995, we’ve been focused on realising opportunities across residential and hospitality, creating not only incredible projects, but also building on the communities in which they are in. We’re not only a trusted name in property – we’re local, and share a love for the regions we develop in. From Sydney to Newcastle, we have delivered premium projects in some of the most prestigious locations. Now we are proud to be taking our expertise to Newcastle, where we have created the first stage of a new urban village that will breath new life back into the CBD and embrace the casual and relaxed life style of this great city with its stunning natural amenity.
“For over 20 years, and with 80 years of combined experience, we have been creating places people love. This is our passion and drive for creating developments like the East End.”
