The demolition of the John Singleton-owned Duttons Hotel in Mann St, Gosford, has commenced.
Mr Singleton said that after listening to everyone talk about revitalising Gosford CBD for at least 20 years, he had decided to put his money where his mouth is and commence his dream to build a “world class Gosford CBD,” the first step being the demolition of Duttons to make way for Bonython Tower.
He said Bonython Tower would be the first of many high quality, luxury buildings from the Bonython Group.
“This building will be the most beautiful and luxurious built in Gosford ever,” said a very proud John Singleton.
“Just look at this place,” he said.
“It’s beautiful, it deserves a beautiful building that we can all enjoy.
“I have brought everyone from Premiers, including Mike Baird, to Lend Lease and Mirvac to visit the Coast, but governments can’t do this, so I am,” he said.
Bonython Tower will consist of 56 luxury apartments, office space and a restaurant, café and bar.
Mr Singleton said that this is the first development of this type to commence in Gosford for at least 20 years.
“I’m hoping that by everyone seeing that you can do it successfully on the Coast, they will all follow,” he said.
“How good will it be when you can get a five-star meal in nice restaurants and stay in beautiful places?
“Everyone said a 6-star resort wouldn’t work here on the Coast either, but I have proved them all wrong with Bells At Killcare and Pretty Beach House.
“I will do that again with these developments,” he said.
Bonython Tower was designed by Bonython Property and Investments, together with local architects, CKDS, and will be constructed by Stevens Construction from Erina.
The structural design is by Northrop Engineers.
“This is a truly Central Coast development, everyone is from here, and this is our chance to show the world how great we are,’ Mr Singleton said.
