More Newcastle Redevelopment

Oh fun. More targets for my camera! Yes, plans have been announced for the former Newcastle Brewery site in Newcastle. As previously suggested, the intention is for the site to be a centre for research and development, which will be known as Science City.

The focal point is apparently going to be a 30-storey block, which is very big for Newcastle. This will be surrounded by public areas and walkways, together with housing both for people and students[1], shops and bars[3].

It all sounds very promising, with the possibility of lots of jobs being created, and at the very least a new building project to keep an eye on….
