Going past on the Metro this morning I noticed there was what appeared to be a piling rig in the south east corner of the site, so this one is now potentially U/C?

Thanks Ryan,

Actually the thread title should have been changed a few times already . . . and at present it should be Preparation.

Thread title changed (from 'Proposed') accordingly!

Here are the SSC 'Project Thread' title suffixes . . .

Pre-planning - Project is still in the design and consultation phase
Proposed - Project has been submitted for planning permission
Approved - Project has been approved by Planning
Demolition - Demolition underway on site
Preparation - Site clearance/excavation/piling/foundations
U/C - Core and superstructure rising (ie, Under Construction)
T/O - Topped Out. The tower or other building, has reached its maximum height
Completed - Internally and externally complete.
Postponed - Where work ceases temporarily.
Cancelled - Cancellation of Project.

As the project progresses, when the suffix (or anything else in the title) needs amending, just add a note to the Forum Admin Thread.

Lets hope the NMA's totalling 45 documents do not collaborate to lose the quality to this development, itself a confident return to building residential (non student) city centre accommodation of a respectful quality worthy of our city.

Newcastle City Council reveal revamp plans for 'city gateway' near Central Station

This piece is relevant to a number of threads but I thought it best to start it off here.

Newcastle City Council reveal revamp plans for 'city gateway' near Central Station
14 Sep 2016 By Dan O'Donoghue


Forth Yards

Ambitious plans to transform a neglected area of the city are set to go before council bosses next week.

Newcastle City Council’s cabinet has been advised to green light a development framework for a large area of land to the south west of Central Station when they meet on Monday. The Forth Yards area is made up of a number of vacant former industrial sites and is a major gateway into Newcastle which has “significant redevelopment potential”.

Council bosses are hoping that the adoption of a development framework for the area will encourage developers to come forward. The principal uses for the area have been identified as office, leisure and residential - reflecting the potential for this area to form the linkage between the Stephenson Quarter and Newcastle Business Park.

A report to go before council on Monday states: “The framework will ensure that all developments coming forward in the area will deliver a high quality gateway entrance into the city. The area is not likely to come forward for development in the shorter term, although this does not preclude the earlier development of the area. Given its prominent location on the edge of the River Tyne escarpment and largely vacant site status, it is important to provide guidance at this early stage to inform future discussions with developers.” The key aims of the plan include the improvement of access roads to and through the site, improving access to the River Tyne by creating visual links to the river, providing a high quality landmark entrance to the city and providing a public space in the area between Redheugh Bridge Road and Pottery Lane.

Councillor Ged Bell, cabinet member for investment and development, said: “Forth Yards is one of several development opportunities in the city that we want to proactively promote for investment. This framework provides guidance on how large mixed use schemes of this kind could be delivered, to encourage development and secure investment to deliver our ambitions for long term sustainable growth in this area. We’re seeing continued development in the neighbouring site at the Stephenson Quarter, with Convergys recently confirmed at the single tenant of The Rocket, as well as our own investment in and around the city centre. Adopting this framework will help bring forward development in a planned and coordinated way.”

Just to flag up that there are 7 documents including a Construction Management plan on Newcastle planning portal, week beginning 9th October. Could be a sign that work is about to start, also the development is to be a steel frame so the shell could go up rapidly. cheers.

Well hopefully work will shortly commence but that said the applications on the portal are just compliance's with the conditions set out in the grant decision. Just shows that work on the planning by the developer is proceeding at 'office level'.

We may see some archaeological fieldwork commencing shortly as that was one of the responses to the granted conditions.

Work starts on Forth Banks' three apartment towers in Newcastle

Work starts on Forth Banks' three apartment towers in Newcastle
By Coreena Ford 11 December 2016


The Forth Banks development in Newcastle

Work is set to start on two landmark buildings which will create 280 apartments near Newcastle’s Stephenson Quarter.

A 50,000sq ft brownfield site is to be transformed with the erection of one seven-storey and two nine-storey properties in the multi-million pound scheme being led by Panacea Property Development.

The Manchester-based firm is working with delivery partner and main contractor Marcus Worthington Group on the PRS (private rented sector) project called Forth Banks, which will create one block with 111 apartments, a second with 114 apartments, and the third housing 55 apartments.

Neil Patten, managing director at Panacea Property Development, said: “The Forth Banks scheme represents a strong commitment from Newcastle City Council to demonstrate support for PRS. We have worked together with the city for over two years to reach this point and we are now delighted to be starting the first true PRS development in the city. We look forward to working with our joint venture partners to transform this previously underutilised brownfield site into a high quality residential scheme that can assist in the regeneration of other areas.”

Forth Banks represents the city’s first PRS development built specifically for the single ownership private rental market – but other PRS schemes are proposed, including the Rutherford Street skyscraper.
