Pottery Lane, Newcastle
We provided Daylight & Sunlight advice for the regeneration of the derelict Pottery Lane site in Newcastle.
Plans for the redevelopment drawn up by TODD Architects see the creation of two ‘U’ shaped blocks positioned to maximise views from the proposed apartments towards the River Tyne. Each block will have a private landscaped central courtyard, private accessible roof gardens, as well as onsite residents’ gym, secure cycle and car parking. A new public footpath will connect Pottery Lane to the north of the site and to the Quayside to the south. When complete the scheme will provide 525 high quality build to rent apartments within a short distance of the city centre amenities, with good access to transport links, and with uninterrupted views across the Tyne Gorge.
The 2.2 hectare derelict site, south-west of Newcastle city centre had been earmarked for development in the local plan as part of the Forth Yards area regeneration. It is hoped that development of this run down area could pave the way for up to 2,500 new homes and thousands of jobs.
