Introducing Eaton on Union, where style and sophistication meets urban city edge. Bringing you the best of apartment living at West End, Wickham. Comprising of one and two bedrooms apartments, Eaton on Union is a part of the West End precinct, located right in the heart of thriving Wickham. Eaton on Union is scheduled to complete October 2020.


There’s nothing quite like calling West End home. This new precinct has emerged as Newcastle’s newest cultural hub, packed with a mix of history, character and community. Here you’ll be living comfortably, surrounded by art, live music, shopping, cafés and restaurants. With the new transport interchange at your doorstep and access to GoGet’s Wheelchair Accessible People Mover housed in the basement, you’ll be easily connected to everything that this amazing city has to offer.


All our apartments consist of large open living areas, spacious bedrooms and beautiful finishes, which creates the perfect home for entertaining and relaxing. Each apartment is fitted with automatic floor
to ceiling sliding doors, which flow on to a large, private and light filled balcony. The apartments boast elegant flooring and a range of sophisticated features and finishes. With extensive windows,
your home will be filled with an abundance of natural light all year round. The kitchen, laundry and bathroom features are all customisable and all areas of the building are wheelchair accessible.
Eaton on Union features modern, open plan designs with spacious outdoor areas and access to a stunning mezzanine garden. It’s exactly what you, and the City of Newcastle, have been waiting
for. Please note, the second bedroom is not SDA compliant.


The community gardens offer plenty of shaded areas and open spaces to enjoy your days and weekends. The apartments offer views in towards the gardens and the building is complete with
a lushly landscaped garden and communal barbecue area for all residents to enjoy.


Our single level apartments are fully accessible, including private outdoor areas. Each apartment is fitted with home automation, automatic doors and accessible appliances. All Apartments are assistive technology ready.


The home automation in each apartment has the ability to offer a wide range of options when it comes to lighting and air conditioning control. 


A communication system will be installed in each apartment, which allows residents to contact support workers (in an on-site apartment), personal support workers or family members in the event of an emergency or in a time of need.


At Eaton on Union, we have partnered with GoGet to provide all residents with a moving van, a sedan and a Wheelchair Accessible People Mover which are all housed in the basement. Bookings can be arranged through the GoGet app or website at any time.
