This masterplan creates a new community of one thousand homes on the northern bank of the River Tyne for Regen LLP, a joint venture between The Grainger Trust, Express Holdings and The Northumberland Estates.

We worked closely with the local authority to develop a contemporary urban design-lead masterplan for retail, commercial and over one million sqft of residential accommodation. The scheme responds to the sites dramatic topography and retains the heroically scaled "triple docks" reinventing their purpose and reusing them as a central part of the new development. The masterplan sensitively remediates the site, reconnecting it to its surroundings, whilst retaining its distinctive character.
