The Lynch’s Hub vision is for a social enterprise that will improve the amenity of the Newcastle harbour-side and make a strong contribution to place-making efforts as the foreshore parklands are redeveloped, re-vitalised and reconnected with the city of Newcastle.
We are creating a shared space where a number of local businesses will collaborate to offer a community cycle workshop providing free advice, terminal infrastructure and access to tools for local transport and touring cyclists.
A cycling themed espresso bar will be the key commercial operation at the site which will facilitate the maintenance of a strong community focus in our broader offering.
We will also host a tour desk, to be co-operatively managed and operated by a number of small local tour operators. This will give such small operators a valuable physical presence at a strategic site. One key aim is to encourage collaborative offerings able to handle larger groups and improving Newcastle’s offering as a business event and conference destination.
At the same time, we will develop a sorely needed family amusement hire option on the Newcastle foreshore. Tandem cycles, funky frames and electric assist bikes will be available for hire giving people another reason to explore the regional attraction the foreshore parklands will become.
Lynch’s Hub will contribute in an amazing way to a vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere in our city center while breathing new life into an iconic building on our foreshore with a special history for our community.
