It looks more like an MOT garage than a bar! Might be interesting, depends what the facade material is I guess. Not sure it'll age well though

the development to renovate forth house as a chinese church has progressed quite a bit and it actually looks like they are keeping the pink lane facade.

Ward Hadaway helps St Nicholas Cathedral project
Apr 1 2010 by Iain Laing, The Journal



LAW firm Ward Hadaway has helped with an ambitious project to revitalise the surroundings of one of Tyneside’s most historic buildings. The Newcastle firm has worked with the Dean and Chapter of St Nicholas Cathedral on the Heart of the City Project, which aims to bring new life to the area surrounding the Newcastle cathedral and bring out the best in the iconic structure.

As part of the scheme, the cathedral has acquired 42-44 Mosley Street, a building next to St Nicholas Cathedral designed by Newcastle Theatre Royal designer Benjamin Green. Property experts from Ward Hadaway, led by partner and head of commercial development Lesley Fairclough, worked on a pro-bono basis to advise the Dean and Chapter on the successful acquisition of the building after being contacted by John Squires OBE, chairman of motor vehicle dealers and Ward Hadaway client Benfield Motor Group and a lay canon of St Nicholas. Ward Hadaway’s licensing team also helped the Dean and Chapter – again on a pro-bono basis – by ensuring that adverts for a late-night venue near to the cathedral do not impinge on the cathedral’s bounds.

Over the next five years, the cathedral plans to transform 42-44 Mosley Street into a centre for its activities and a gateway to the cathedral itself. A shop and advice desk are planned for the ground-floor unit while the remaining three floors will include an administrative centre, conference facilities and meeting spaces, a base for Newcastle’s Street Pastor project and offices for voluntary agencies.

surprised no one has mentioned this, but Nepia House on the quayside, home to a shipping insurance firm, is undergiong renovation (even though it's only around a decade old!). The inside has been partially gutted and they are adding a new floor of offices on top of it as well as extending out above the surface carpark.

Wow- I'm surprised this one has slipped by us all! I had noticed the work going on down at the Quayside the other day but didn't think much of it. Looks quite a decent extension.

- partly fixing the mistake the Development Corporation made in the first place in allowing the first new building on the East Quayside site to be such a bland and under-sized piece of business park architecture.

I'd say that's quite a big development! I virtually never go to the Quayside at the moment so would not have noticed that for a while. I think it looks unbalanced with the new addition.

i agree, somehow it just doesn't look right.

the design and access statement includes an alternative design that was drawn up but not used:

I think its mainly that it destroys the impression of symmetry in the building. It would probably look ok if it was the same at both ends.

I don't think that the existing building is of a particularly great quality in the first place, so this can't do that much harm.

I've came across this application for a renewal of the following:

2005/0444/06/REN | Renewal of Planning Permission: Erection of 3, 4 and 5 storey office building with associated car parking (10 spaces) at basement level | Former Peacocks Medical Group Hanover Buildings Clavering Place Newcastle upon Tyne

http://planningapplications.newcastl...=L1ZTUPBS00900

Does anyone have any images of what this scheme was? Or can give me details of it's location? Even perhaps an idea of why they are seeking renewed permission?

Because the 5 years permission is about to expire. It is at the back of the station near to the Buccleuch site (or is it actually the Buccleuch site?)

Thanks for the info, can we therefore assume they are still looking to go ahead with this development? I'd be interested to see some images, is it not in the middle of Stephenson Quarter?

That's a lot of stuff just for an exhibition! I like Dr. Who but I'm not sure if I'll go to that. About a tenner to see some props? Now if Karen Gillan was there...
