Opportunity to run roof-top restaurant on Tyneside (the Word, South Shields)

From Chronicle Live website, business section on 02/02/16

EXTRACT

Developers behind South Shields' The Word project want an established restaurateur to run a roof-top restaurant


Artist's impression of The Word, South Shields

The chance to run a unique roof-top restaurant is being offered as work nears completion on a new library on Tyneside.

The Word, the North East Centre for the Written Word, is the main part of a £100m regeneration of South Shields , which aims to improve links between the town centre, riverside and foreshore and create stronger connectivity to the area.

Property agent Sanderson Weatherall is offering an established restaurateur the opportunity to take a lease on a roof top restaurant at the venue, at a proposed rental starting at £55,000 per annum.

The 3,315 sq ft restaurant will be provided to shell specification ready for fit-out and incorporates covered space and an outdoor terrace. A fully fitted commercial kitchen is also included.

A 1,300 sq ft ground floor café with an external terrace is also offered with the same lease terms at a proposed rental starting at £20,000 per annum.

Part 1 of 3

I had my first tour of the interior of "The Word" this morning. The place was a hive of activity, and the majority of the internal partitions and much of the flooring is now in place. I took about 250 photos for the Library archive, but unfortunately I'm not permitted to post them (which is a shame as a couple of the 360 degree panoramas came out really well).

The most recent internal photo from Bowmer & Kirkland is on the right of this image on this page (taken about a month ago):
http://www.southshields365progress.c...oming-to-life/

The exterior of the building (where I am allowed to post photos) is now fully glazed apart from the rear where about a third of the panes have now been inserted (a trolley laden with glass arrived whilst I was there). All the terracotta cladding baguettes have been fitted apart from a section on the North West of the building.

Some external images taken at lunchtime today:

Viewed from River Drive




If you get into the correct position on River Drive, it is possible to see Penshaw Monument and the Nissan wind turbines just above the restaurant skylight window of The Word.
