Brett Wharf


Project GDV

A short walk to Gateshead’s world-famous cultural quarter and offering stunning views across the river and the city’s landmark bridges, Brett Wharf will offer residents a unique and tranquil riverside address, mere minutes from the city centre.

The development comprises of up to 262 residential apartments split over two buildings with rooftop communal terraces and ground floor commercial/retail space. From work and transport to retail and leisure, the location is perfect for those seeking the convenience of city centre living, as everything is on your doorstep.

The 0.52 hectare, former Brett Oils site sits on the south bank of the River Tyne, off Pipewellgate on Gateshead Quayside.

The site is allocated by Gateshead Council in the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan as a development opportunity site for a mixed-use development. The site provides views across the River Tyne and the landmark bridges, while also providing easy access to both Newcastle City Centre and Gateshead Town Centre. It also presents a key opportunity to bring forward a high quality mixed-use development to support the regeneration along the River Tyne.
