Forth Banks

One from the shoe box - this photograph looking up Forth Banks, 22nd June 2002.

Even in those days the warehouses were in a derelict state.

What a photo.

To me, this conveys the uniqueness of Newcastle when compared to the other UK core cities. The dramatic change of scale and level changes down to the Quayside evoke other cities like Lisbon, Porto or Chicago. No kidding.

The architecture could be of a better quality, but beggars can't be choosers, and the Forth Banks is a solid return to Quayside apartment living.

Forth Banks, in being shielded from the city centre will not have the same drama as the more historic changes in scale and arching over infrastructure as Dean Street, but if the city centre appropriately expands with residential westwards, taking up derelict land all the way up to the (possibly relocated) Metro Arena. Forth Banks could very well increase in footfall and provide access to a rejuvenated Quayside West of the Tyne Bridge that currently feels a little lost and underwhelmed.

Would it be safe to say it's now topped out?

That Hertz building really needs to go, and the 'tower' complex behind it needs an update.

Hundreds of flats overlooking the Tyne could be built in plans for three apartment blocks

From today's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/busin...could-14110055
Hundreds of flats overlooking the Tyne could be built in plans for three apartment blocks
Coreena Ford 4 July 2017


The Cemex Plant near Forth Banks in Newcastle (Image: newcastle chronicle)

Three housing tower blocks could be created to overlook the River Tyne as part of plans put forward for a prime plot of city centre land.

Development company Provincial Town Properties is seeking permission to develop new apartments on Pottery Lane, close to Forth Banks in Newcastle - an area rich in industrial history which is already undergoing significant change through the creation of new developments, including the £37m Moorfield housing scheme.

The proposed site is currently the base for concrete company Cemex, which would be demolished to make way for around 271 apartments. It is part of a large swathe of land thought to be the next big development opportunity for developers in Newcastle, with a number of vacant plots on the western edge of the city centre, many of which have views over the Tyne.

Through its planning agents, Provincial has submitted an outline application rather than a detailed one, meaning planners do not yet know what the size and scale of the housing blocks would be. But with the potential to deliver 271 apartments in three blocks, the Pottery Lane scheme would be one of the largest housing schemes in the city centre in recent years, delivering 100 homes more than the £40m skyscraper under construction in Newcastle’s Rutherford Street.
