High Street Residential’s flagship project Hadrian’s Tower has now reached its full height of 27-storeys. The 27-storey Hadrian’s Tower, which is located off St James’ Boulevard , will include 161 apartments and feature a Laurent Perrier Champagne Sky Lounge on the top floor.

Gary Forrest, chairman said: “When we first came up with the idea of building Newcastle’s tallest tower on this site, everyone said we were crazy and that it could not be done.

“They said there would be no demand for apartments without car parking; they said the project would never achieve the value we placed on it; someone even said it would be a white elephant.

“But we’ve had the courage of our convictions and, working with Tolent, we have made this happen”.
