Gross Development Value of the Scheme

The Pottery Lane development is situated adjacent to Forth Banks, the primary vehicular route linking the city’s iconic quayside to the city centre. The area has seen significant changed over the past 30 years. In the 1990s the quayside was developed as office occupiers sought larger, more modern floor plans, with office buildings occupying the area east of The Millennium Bridge.
Subsequently, the western side of the quayside became the city’s leading leisure destination, capitalising on the iconic bridge scape.

It is the home of Newcastle’s mature, mid to upper market with a host of high-quality restaurants and bars. This includes the Michelin starred House of Tides run by Kenny Atkinson and Café Vivo, 21, and The Broad Chare all run by local food hero Terry Laybourne. More recently, the Stephenson Quarter has built on this regeneration with the addition of the 4 star Crowne Plaza Hotel within a stone’s throw of the site at Pottery Lane. Furthermore, The Boiler Shop at the Stephenson Quarter provides a multi-purpose events space hosting everything from concerts to local independent craft beer and food festivals.
