Science Central is one of the biggest regeneration projects of its type in the UK and Newcastle City Council has just approved a scheme for the next stage of the development to go ahead.
Newcastle’s Science Central is already on its way to becoming a major centre for tech business and scientific researchers. The next stage of the scheme includes a new 12 storey tower block, expected to provide home to just under one thousand technical jobs in the city centre.
The new building at the site, will provide around 100,000sqm of office space after gaining planning permission and being given the go ahead earlier this month. Designed by Ryder Architecture, the building is due to be completed by 2020.
Legal & General’s investment arm is partnering with the city council and Newcastle University on the financing and build of the Science Central development.
