A $41 million hotel is set to undergo construction on Honeysuckle Drive, following the approval of Doma Group's development application.
The Little National Hotel on 42 Honeysuckle Drive will have a capacity of 140 rooms, with 50 residential apartments attached and 250 parking spaces.
It's hoped to create 60 ongoing jobs and others during the building process.
The Hunter Development Corporation is welcoming the milestone as proof of growing confidence in a revitalised Newcastle CBD.
Chief Operating Officer, Valentina Misevska said the city is in need of more accommodation options.
"Newcastle does need more hotel rooms, and if HDC can create these development opportunities, we're helping the city attract more visitors and business," Ms Misevska said, "ultimately that means we're supporting more jobs."
The hotel comes alongside public domain works near Cottage Creek and the western Honeysuckle area.
