Reckon the building near the small car park, opposite the travel lodge (think it is some tyre place) should be pulled down. It looks like it is ready to fall down; hoping some development down there will drag the area up. Last time I was down there the grassed area around there had loads of rubbish - could do with a big clear up and have the grass cut properly.

Yeah it would certainly look nicer with that building you mention pulled down.
It'd make the whole block flattened ready for development.

I looked on Google Maps and spotted a sign:

... the latest update on GM is May 2018, but it reads "Acquired for future development for Pallion Housing Group LTD". However, even that sign looks ancient.
This might be their web site:

Yes it will be good to see this area being Demolished and regenerated,---as Sup mentioned it's been quite a few years since there was mention of this area being brought back and regenerated,--I remember reading of this about 8 or so years ago,----as for the building opposite the Hotel,---this has been an eyesore for years now---and like everyone else--would love to see it flattened,------just hope there are Development plans ready for this area,---cheers.

I think the issue with the High Street Tyres building is the pebble dash! If the building is to have any future it needs completely removing and the old brickwork restoring to have it more in keeping with the area.

The simplest option would just be to pull it down, then you have the full street to work with, I would like to see streets and quaint cut throughs such as little Villiers stay and be expanded upon, they give a lot of character when your mazing through the area, I love it, if you could get the balance of the new development mixed with the best character of the area it could be a brilliant extension to the city centre.

I’m sure I’d read the plan was for around 400 houses/ apartments for East Sunniside which is a fair number, also separate is Crown/Angel house is getting around 130 apartments and potentially the Norfolk hotel will be converted into yet more apartments so plenty more to come.

Said it before and will say it again the area needs a small supermarket, such as at the travelodge units, the premier just isn’t enough.

Plenty happening around there, all the offices and shops in Fredrick street seem to be taken now.

Is BURGeR where Raffertys used to be?

This is also posted on the Smaller Projects & other Developments thread --


Plan lodged to demolish old business units in Sunderland city centre


A row of old business units in Sunderland city centre could be razed to the ground under new plans.

Last week, an application was submitted to Sunderland City Council to demolish several properties in Nile Street.

If approved, several buildings will be affected including numbers 45 – 46, 47 – 50, 51, 52, 53 – 54.

According to an application by Homes England, the buildings will be “demolished in a piecemeal fashion” and will help “open land up for development.”

Nearly 500 posts that’s some figure!

Hopefully this next year sees the plans for East Sunniside start to come together.

Didn’t realise that Louie Louie had closed, its appeared on Lofthouse and partners to let:

https://lofthouseandpartners.co.uk/w...nd-SR1-1TX.pdf

Being such a prominent unit such a shame to see this struggle, mind when it first opened 7/8 years ago the food was much better than the last time I went a year or so ago.

If good quality food is served and the price is right then the place could be rammed. With free parking outside after 6 there’s no reason for it not to be.

I hadn't been for a while, but the last time I was there it was very poor and apparently got worse. I heard that the cleanliness was shocking, several of the toilets were either broken or had doors that didn't close and stories of rat droppings being found on site were circulating shortly after it closed. It is a shame that it's closed, but hopefully it wont be empty too long, though if what I've heard about what the landlords want for rent, it may be like Doner Haus/Poperdoms.
