I think it looks fairly unspectacular.

No balcony means student accom. Back in the 00's when in other cities proper residential apartments were being snapped up Newcastle struggled so I wouldn't image any being built anytime soon. NCC probably know this - hence the willingness to build student accom anywhere in the city centre.

Quite impressed with this proposal.
I was going to do that Johnny!
Does look quite impressive.
Looks as though Hertz will stay as well as the cement works.

Should this development have it's own thread?

I like this view, different from the others.

I take it this where Pottery Lane joins Forth Banks, the car is coming out of Pottery Lane?

Has anyone had a full look through? It's very impressive. It appears that it will be apartments for normal residential use, not student apartments.

geordiejon, there is a balcony on the back of some of the buildings.

Page 14 of final design statement shows cement works as future development, looks very impressive.

this proposal looks like a really good development, I like the look of block 3 that faces the river, a slightly different design to the other two blocks with the balconies facing the Tyne. I would like to see the council push on with bringing skinnerburn road to its proposed status as a premier route in the one core master plan and bring developers in to push the riverside development westwards . this is a good start . cheers.

I think this looks great! I love seeing more traditional red brick buildings being built these days. This area could be amazing once Stephenson is complete and the south entrance to central station open. A few nice restaurants and nice public square to sit in.

Very impressed, the proposed building has a very urban form and will really add to the grain of the street. Also happy as the red brick ties in with the police station and buildings like Central Square and the Stephenson Quarter proposals.

Also regular spaced windows yay!

Looks pretty good. But 280 apartments and no car parking at all bar 4 spaces. For all the puff about agreeing early on with the planners not to provide any so as to promote a cycle and pedestrian friendly environment, I suspect this may limit the appeal of what will presumably be fairly expensive units. I'm guessing season tickets in the new car park opposite on Forth Bank will add substantially to the cost of living there.

Now this is one hell of a brilliant proposal. Proper actual residential back on the quayside, and re populating forth banks back as part of our city once again. The scale is both ambitious and satisfying for the area and the design has clearly understood context and place making. A credit to the architects is due.

Maybe they could take a look at St. James car park site?

This looks to be an excellent proposal and needs to be approved asap. Importantly it has interaction at street level, which Stephenson MSCP and the West1 tower completely fail to provide.

Makes you wonder how on earth we can get this here yet that cr*p just round the corner at Hanover Square/Clavering Place.

Having been forced to drive along Pottery Bank a fair bit this last few weeks due to the Skinnerburn Rd closure I'm really glad they're finally taking this area on, and with some quality development.
