The Cubbyhole Concept

Whilst working from my garage (Cubbyhole) I thought of the idea of developing an industrial park of superbly-designed but affordable work and storage spaces for people who prefer to own rather than rent and to co – work rather than work alone.

The first Cubbyhole Development was built in Newcastle and completed in October 2016. It included 87 units which sold quickly to investors and owner occupiers throughout Australia. Approximately half the units are occupied by businesses, tradesman, artisans, and hobbyists and the other half are used for permanent commercial and domestic storage. (Click here for details).

Whilst developing Cubby One, I began looking for Cubby Two and purchased land in the Warnervale Business Park, Central Coast, where Woolworths and Sanitarium have located their distribution centers. It’s just seconds from the off ramps of the M1 on the corner of Sparks Road and Burnet Road.

The site is part of the Wyong employment zone, which comprises of 340 ha of industrial land. The area will facilitate approximately 6,000 local jobs and generate a minimum of $1.5 billion of investment. Click here for details.

North Connex when completed in 2019 links the M1 Motorway to the M2, directly connecting Western Sydney (the fastest growing area in Sydney) to the Central Coast and Newcastle, click here and watch the video. These three cities are diverse and together offer employment and life style like no other area in Australia. As the population of these areas continue to grow, I anticipate substantial demand for work and storage spaces, for sale or lease, from owner occupiers, investors and tenants travelling between the cities along the M1.

The buildings for Cubbyhole Central Coast are set in landscaped grounds, adjoining bushland with rural views and include a café; 88 light industrial units and one residential apartment.

Whilst others may try and copy this concept, the original is still the best. If you’re looking to buy a work or storage space don’t settle for anything else, buy a Cubbyhole.
