Greenspot is a 100% privately owned Australian company that invests in real estate opportunities which have the potential to positively impact the surrounding community. Our primary focus is on disused fossil fuel industry sites with the potential to be repurposed.
Our owners bring a diverse range of complementary business experience and skill-sets including manufacturing, resource recovery and recycling, logistics, construction and property development.
Communities are built by people and centred around places. We respect and honour places that have played a part in shaping communities.
Before the demolition of the chimney stacks at Wallerawang, the community came out to honour the legacy of the Power Station and the opportunities it provided for generations of families.
It’s common for buildings and infrastructure to be discarded when they no longer serve their original purpose. We see and seek opportunities to preserve and retain buildings and infrastructure. We believe they embody and tell an important story.At the Wallerawang Power Station, reoccupation and repurposing of buildings and infrastructure has the potential to celebrate and honour the past industrial function of the site, resulting in a richer experience of place.
Each place has unique characteristics which can be leveraged for future growth. We aim to create bright spots that attract investment, jobs, visitors and lifestyle opportunities.
The Wallerawang 9 Battery is an early example of this at the site of the old Power Station. The battery will leverage existing infrastructure to plug into the grid and play a role in the evolution of the electricity market.
Greenspot’s founder, Neil Schembri, has always held a deep commitment to beneficial re-use of materials wherever possible. In a business career spanning over 40 years, there has been one constant – always find ways to repurpose things. With Greenspot, Neil’s vision is to identify and create unique places that act as magnets, where people, commercial organisations and communities join together. To bring this vision to life, Neil teamed up with John and Michael Borg and Brett Hawkins in 2020 to create Greenspot and launch our flagship project, the transformation of the Wallerawang Power Station.
