I know it is not strictly appropriate to the 'Tyne Tees Studios Project Thread', but continuing the Egypt Cottage theme.

I have just been reading an article written by one of the Newcastle Journal's music reporters, about the great days of the making of The Tube music show at Tyne Tees TV, and his visits next door to 'the Cottage'.

They definitely sound like interesting times, as he writes . . .


Quote:
"I remember going in there for a quick pint one night, and there was Bono of U2 playing pool with Iggy Pop."

"The moment I really relish though, is walking into the Cottage one evening, and seeing Annie Lennox sitting in one corner and Tina Turner in another."

Nothing much really new, but a couple of previously unposted items from the developers (Buccleuch) website.

It gives a different view of the development site, and additionally shows the neighbouring "Imperial Quay Gap" quite clearly, also . . .

this is advertised as being an office led masterplan with up to 120,000sq ft available. can't wait to see what is proposed for here as it will have a big impact on the look of the quayside.

Yes, I so regret the loss of our own ITV studios, the face of Newcastle on the ITV network, and I had some pleasant occasions there (and in the Cottage!)

BUT,

They're gone now, and you are correct Johnny, it is important that we get some decent quality architecture on the site, as it is going to be quite a 'visible' location.

I know it is not far away from other student accommodation, but I feel that the Tyne Tees TV Studios location is 'just that little bit' TOO PRIME a location, for student accommodation.

It would be wrong, in that location, we need something a bit more interesting (if I can put it that way) than that!

It's a shame that the old Tyne Tees building is going, but there again it's pointless keeping a building if it's not going to be used and therefore fall into dereliction.
I think that most of the newer buildings around the Newcastle quayside aren't terrible, just a bit nonedescript.
The iconic buildings on either side the Tyne have been built in recent years on the "Geordie south bank" - Gateshead.

Doesn't really seem like anything is happening with this other than the demolition. Have plans been submitted yet?

Buccleuch considering options for Tyne Tees TV site
by Peter McCusker, The Journal, February 9th 2011


NB - The below paragraphs were part of a larger article in the Journal of 9th February 2011, principally about the 'Fusion' office development . .


In the east of the City Centre, Buccleuch, the property arm of Borders landowner the Duke of Buccleuch, owns the land once occupied by the Tyne Tees Television studios and popular pub The Egypt Cottage.

Sandy Smith, development director of Edinburgh-based Buccleuch Property, said:

Buccleuch is looking at a range of options for the two-acre Tyne Tees site.

This includes offices, hotels, student accommodation and retail, although it was some way from being developed in the current flat, commercial property market

I was looking at the old Tyne Tees site the other day and thinking that would make a great hotel development, the premier inn next door is quite small

Check out the Development web site @ http://www.cityquay-newcastle.co.uk/

From what I can see it is being advertised as primarily an office's led development but it wouldn't surprise me if a hotel was erected.

Iconic Tyne Tees TV studio site still looking for a buyer
The Journal, October 12th 2011



A PLUM Newcastle development opportunity worth tens of millions of pounds in the right market is up for grabs – but so far there has only been limited interest.

The 1.76 acre site on City Quay was the main studios of Tyne Tees television, for decades where the nightly regional news was broadcast until the station moved in 2005.

Although the rabbit warren of rooms in the converted warehouse were rented out for years, the decision was finally taken to demolish the iconic white building in 2010.

Now the fenced-off strip of land close to city centre amenities is available for sale or development. Nothing is ruled out: “It all depends on what people want to do with the site,” was the view of one estate agent poised to answer serious inquiries from interested parties.

Chartered surveyor Kevin McGorie who works for the commercial arm of Sanderson Weatherall said: “The development would be worth millions, but that depends on what is eventually put on there. It could be £4m or £8m. It’s superb, a top notch location.”

I thought this area was going to be used for some kind of artistic/media center, or did i just dream that?

A couple of years ago this would have been student rabbit hutches, but i reckon the even developers can see that bubble is about to burst.

Here is a crazy, wild idea. How about ordinary homes for ordinary local working people?

But that would require the council and planning authorities to be working for local people, how silly of me.

Just had a leaflet through the door advertising this - might pop along and see what it will look like. Latest issue of the Lib Dem Focus newsletter, and Stephen Psallidas isn't pleased about it.
