Newcastle Quayside West plans submitted

Newcastle Quayside West Masterplan Urban Village Residential Offices Leisure Aerial View Towards The Quayside Lh

Our masterplan proposals for Newcastle Quayside West, a new £250m sustainable urban village, have been submitted to Newcastle City Council by developer Newby, as an outline planning application.

The Quayside West proposals would see up to 1,500 high-quality residential properties built, along with a hotel and up to 10,605 square metres of commercial, community and leisure space. Significant new landscaping and public realm, including public open spaces, viewpoints and walkways will make Quayside West an inspiring environment for visitors and residents.

Our mixed-use masterplan reflects the vision of developer Newby to create a new urban community on the banks of the River Tyne. With close proximity to Newcastle city centre and the River Tyne, and with exceptional views along the Tyne Gorge, the plans represent a new high quality destination within the city.

The site, which is located at an important gateway into the city, was in industrial use until 2000, operated for many years by Calder Industrial Materials Ltd. The site was then cleared and has remained empty since 2002, despite a number of approved planning applications.

Ben Sykes, Partner at FaulknerBrowns, said: “With these proposals, we are delighted to be leading the regeneration of an area of the city that has been underutilised for many years. Our plans exploit the site’s enormous potential to become an attractive, sustainable community for residents, and a vibrant destination for visitors.”
