Pottery Lane gets the green light

Newcastle City Council planning committee have given the green light for a major new residential scheme at the Gateway to Newcastle. The scheme will form an important part of The Forth Yards’ Redevelopment zone in Newcastle. The scheme by TODD Architects for our client Olympian Homes is for 525 residential units in elements as part of the overall development on the prominent River Tyne riverfront site.

The scheme comprises two wrapping U-shaped buildings, that have been carefully considered designed to take benefit of views over the adjacent River Tyne, Newcastle City and to also contribute to an improved urban environment along Pottery Lane.

One residential block is sited on the western half of the site which is approximately 5.2-acre and typically be seven to eight storeys in height. The scheme rises to a 12-storey tower element on the north west corner, adjacent the Redheugh Bridge and marking the approach to the City from Gateshead. This building would accommodate 296 private rented (PRS) one and two-bed apartments. The balance of accommodation is proposed on the eastern half of the site and will be five to eight storeys, providing 229 apartments for either private sale or additional PRS units.

The scheme incorporates various amenity spaces including a private landscaped central courtyard area, and other private amenity including private accessible roof gardens, a gym, meeting and staff rooms.

The importance of support spaces in healthcare

TODD Architects award winning healthcare projects, embrace the ethos of being ‘places that promote health and healing’.

We are continually learning from evidence based research and post occupancy feedback. As well recognising the demands of clinical areas we recognise the importance of support spaces in the healthcare environment.

Our current design for the Altnagelvin Hospital includes a proposed new restaurant space which is located at the heart of the hospital campus. The contemporary design has been carefully considered to provide a range of spaces to support the needs of patients, visitors and staff, and to promote health and healing.

We look forward to commencing in site later this year.
