Am having a major sort out of my photos and in the process of creating albums of all the major projects I've taken pics of over the last 5 years or so. Here's my album for the Sleeperz Hotel development.

A bit disappointing. Part of the benefits of that hotel 'bringing life' to that area of the City Centre was the life (to be) generated by the Ground Floor Retail Units also.

What would be suitable for those units.

I would say a Restaurant would be best, and perhaps it will happen when the adjacent area in front of and around Central Station (that is being landscaped etc, at the moment) settles down later this year.

Quite noticeable that the units in the railway arches further towards the Castle are all occupied. However they are possibly smaller and thus more affordable than the one's at the hotel.

This from BNP Paribas @ http://www.realestate.bnpparibas.co....p_1557291.html

Two units are available, the largest providing up to 9,128 sq ft of retail or leisure space, situated below the brand new, 93 bed, Sleeperz Hotel.

The new units offer a rare opportunity to secure space in the prominent thoroughfare leading to Central Station. The site lends itself particularly well to café/bar or restaurant and is close to the thriving leisure circuit of Collingwood Street and Westgate Road.

Mike Birkett, Director, Retail and Leisure Agency at BNP Paribas Real Estate’s Newcastle office, comments: “The space on offer provides occupiers with the chance to feature below a brand new city centre hotel. Both units are available on effectively full repairing and insuring leases, for terms to be agreed and a rental of £17.50 per square foot is being quoted.”


The units are being badges as Westgate Corner - check out the PDF @ http://www.propertypilot.co.uk/pdf/92+757783.pdf - that shows there are 4 units up for lease.

Completely conjecture on my part but:
  • There's been a bit of churn [closing businesses] in the bigger arches - whatever people say retail is still tough out there.
  • There may be more restrictions on they type of tenant. At least two of the tenants in the arches are foodie. The hotel may not want 'competition' [assuming they are the landlord] and possibly more significantly there are issues about vents, kitchens etc that might be more complex in those sites.
  • The arches might be thought of as 'funkier' [as the young people say ]

The largest unit has annual rent of £159,740.

I know city centre prices are high but for me this unit is too far out the way to be able to command a rent of that much.

Looking at that pdf brochure 'Unit 1' would make a great pub/club, hidden away underneath the arches of the railway embankment forming central station and its approaches.

Aye but no chance of a prem' licence. Under a hotel and opposite what's probably the most expensive apartments in Newcastle....

I take back the restaurant comments - they re obviously actively promoting to that market, though Chris is right - that's serious rent for that location.

The arches on the Westgate Road side are fully occupied, I noticed a Tattoo Artist Shop is one of them now, couple of food outlets an think the remainder are office types. Past there this morning and a lot of activity outside of those units, Police and looked like water board - perhaps a mains leak?

On the Forth Street side of the arches there are a few empty there.

Big leak too, looked like a 'crack' in the road surface.

Are you sure they re all 'actively' occupied. I had the impression [ok only looked properly a couple of weeks ago] that at least one was broke [dusty and mail on the floor].

There's a tat shop, a hairdresser I think and Sausage Emporium [v good],

Also Herb Garden - supposed to be good, but put off by roller skating horse and more importantly went with Mrs NP and mother a couple of weeks ago with the intention to eat but no menu on the outside.. is it a fiver a plate or fifty ? Went elsewhere.

No I walked down there yesterday afternoon and they were all occupied on Westgate Road from the tunnel to St Nicholas' Street. The one right next to the Sleeperz is unoccupied - that is I think under the ownership/guardianship of the hotel.

Pictures by myself taken Saturday 13/09/19 approx 1015 from the roof area of The Castle Keep, Newcastle, (on a Heritage Open Days 2019 event), to show different views of the Sleeperz Hotel, Westgate Rd, Newcastle and adjacent car park area of Central Station
