There are currently two Enterprise Zones in Newcastle upon Tyne which were created in the 1990s - Cobalt Business Park is one of them which, when completed, will create 2.25 million sq ft of office accommodation making it the largest business park in the UK.
Following a national design competition FaulknerBrowns Architects were selected by developers Highbridge Business Park Ltd to design the second phase of Cobalt Business Park. It will provide over half a million square feet of contemporary office accommodation creating a unique identity for this part of the business park. Cobalt South combines office accommodation with contemporary public realm. Each of the buildings within the masterplan adopts this strategy which helps to create a common architectural language throughout the development helping to deliver a strong sense of character combined with a unique unifying identity.
