Ambitious Science building gets go ahead in Newcastle City Centre

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.

Head of urban regeneration at L&G Capital, Rachel Dickie, believes that the partnership is key to successful city regeneration.  She added that accomplishing planning for the second office building was an important milestone towards delivering the major urban redevelopment.

Senior Development Manager, Ben Rodgers, believes that the regeneration can make new uses of Newcastle city centre space. He added that alongside the modern offices and scientific research facilities, Science Central would also include accommodation, new homes, a hotel and could create thousands of new jobs in the local area.

Architectural director at Ryder, Jonathan Seebacher agrees that planning for Building B at Science Central is a big step forward. Mr Seebacher said he was delighted to see the second building achieve a significant milestone.

Building B is due to be the flagship property at the heart of Science Central and will bring an exciting and unique offer to the Newcastle commercial office market.
