The Bar apartments have declined in the three years I have lived there, so much so that I cannot wait to move out. Maybe its because I'm getting older (and miserable at the age of 26) but the noise levels from the gay scene and Times Sq are getting unbearable. Not so much music - though it is a factor sometimes - more the constant shouting, screaming and arguments of drunken dickheads virtually every night. Probably not a patch on the Bigg Market mind thank god. Couple this with morons who treat the place like a litter bin with half eaten pizzas and packets of chips dumped around the entrance or worse in the ground floor carpet.

We live on the front facing Times Square and one of the apartments opposite and above us must be rented out at weekends, which is prohibited by the management company. It seems to attract stag and hen gangs who seem to think opening their windows, blasting out music and screaming down to mates outside is normal behaviour in the middle of the night.

Add in that a brothel was found to be operating somewhere in the building and it just adds to a general feeling of decline of what used to be a quiet development despite being in the city. It never used to be like this so maybe landlords have reduced their rents to get the apartments rented out to anyone who will fill them.
Mrs Np and I viewed some flats in there a while ago and on the face of it very nice. Good finish etc.. but there was just something of the halls of residence about the place. The public spaces seemed a bit sketchy... and the flat which seemed to have all of the widows covered in tin foil suggested either an unhealthy interest in a'hem gardening or a fear that the CIA was watching...... was indicative of something.

A friend [if that makes sense] owns a flat there that she rents out and tells of a letter from the management company to the effect that so many flats had been repo-ed that they were not getting enough income to cover the cleaning in the halls etc, but that she still had to pay the mgt charges [or else].

It's part of a bigger problem with lots of the new builds - Baltic is the same. Sold off plan, buy to let. Owners go skint [or are desparate] and they rent to anyone anytime.

Close to me is the Rialto - built with some 3 bedded top quality appts - family type. Now it's pretty much full of students. Imagine buying your 280k penthouse, only to have students playing cricket in the corridors.

Much less of a problem with the older blocks; Love Lane, Milk Market etc.

This Planning Application has been WITHDRAWN - which is a bit of a coincidence as I was down there this morning and took some photographs. Will post the images later. Appears that a revised PA for the site will be submitted at a later date.

Photographs taken this morning - 4th September 2013:

As can be seen from the images this is a tiny plot and it makes me wonder how they would have managed to get the plant in to make the apartments.

I'd imagine they are old posters from when they were trying to sell them as retail units. You would never get that price/rent for a ground floor flat in Newcastle.

Bruce Building

Bruce Building to be sold

The historical Bruce Building on the University campus has been sold to a developer so it can be transformed into a new mixed-use development.

Most of the Bruce Building is currently vacant but plans are in progress for Michigan Investments Limited to develop it and create sixty high specification studio and one bedroom apartments as well as a café/restaurant, retail units and serviced offices.

The Bruce Building on Percy Street, was unveiled in 1900, by local architect Joseph Oswald, as the headquarters of Newcastle Breweries. Over a hundred years later, the Grade II listed building is still partially in use and will again be fully utilised once the development is complete.

This landmark building is set over three storeys and has many of the original striking features and detailing. Bought by Kings College of Durham University in the 1950’s, it then became part of Newcastle University in 1963.

Professor Tony Stevenson, Pro Vice Chancellor for Planning and Resources at Newcastle University, said: "We have taken this decision for financial reasons. The Bruce Building was empty and we had no identified use for it. Significant expenditure was required to keep the building safe and weatherproof. For this reason we decided it was best to sell the building so it could be developed for other uses."

Mark Walton, Director of Michigan Investments, said: "The project will transform the interior of this landmark building into an exciting new mixed-use development. Michigan Investments have acquired an exceptional property which is currently under utilised and requires care and attention to bring it back to its former glory. We are looking forward to seeing the finished article improve the landscape at this end of the City."

Mrs Np and I viewed some flats in there a while ago and on the face of it very nice. Good finish etc.. but there was just something of the halls of residence about the place. The public spaces seemed a bit sketchy... and the flat which seemed to have all of the widows covered in tin foil suggested either an unhealthy interest in a'hem gardening or a fear that the CIA was watching...... was indicative of something.

A friend [if that makes sense] owns a flat there that she rents out and tells of a letter from the management company to the effect that so many flats had been repo-ed that they were not getting enough income to cover the cleaning in the halls etc, but that she still had to pay the mgt charges [or else].

It's part of a bigger problem with lots of the new builds - Baltic is the same. Sold off plan, buy to let. Owners go skint [or are desparate] and they rent to anyone anytime.

Close to me is the Rialto - built with some 3 bedded top quality appts - family type. Now it's pretty much full of students. Imagine buying your 280k penthouse, only to have students playing cricket in the corridors.

Much less of a problem with the older blocks; Love Lane, Milk Market etc.
The best thing we ever did was carry out "right to manage" at our block. We are across the road from Rialto - and Ive heard bad press about the short term tenants that live in there. A bunch of us flat owners clubbed together and formed our own management company and ditched the ones who were looking after the place - we put our all into it, make sure service charges are paid on time and come down hard on anyone who is unruly. We have had 2 lots of tenants evicted in 12 months. The result - a well run block. The problem with most block management companies is they run scores of blocks and don't have the time or people to look after the places.

What your friend was told about flats being reposessed and they weren't getting enough management charges speaks volumes about incompetent managing agents. We had a flat reposessed in our block - we simply told the bank that had reposessed it that they would now have to pay the charges themselves. They resisted initially until we told them under the leasehold act we can have the flat off them...

Yep I think you re across the road from me :). I know a couple of people who ve lived in the Rialto and whilst they were great girls and a good laugh.. I d not wan them as neighbours. My reading is that it's almost exclusively a student block now.

The right to manage makes a lot of sense, but you were probably lucky with a lot of owner occupiers. As soon as the block tips over the edge into BTL it can get a lot harder; and of course you have to have the right team running the block [conscientious board].

As to the Bar, if I were cynical I'd not be surprised if they were being paid by the lenders but just used it as an excuse to reduce services to a minimum.

You'd need your head examining if you were considering living there. It may be suitable for workers on nightshift. Then again the noise of trains and buses will be no joke either.

That s insane. Of 15, 11 are studio or one bed so I d assume students [also as there s no parking]. If I were the Empress or Noosh I'd be cacking myself as I have no doubt that there will be a list of noise n pong complaints.

On an overlapping subject [may have been covered already] the owners of the Pan Hagerty bldg on Queen st want to convert the upper decks to flats.

In that location it would be 'mater and pater' paid for students. The 'average' student, I doubt could stretch to that. Sounds like a status environment to me. Like the Hilton in Gateshead, overlooking the bridges so good for photo shoots.

Westgate Hill Grange was built for Mr. John Edward Bowser who was Managing Director of The Bamboro Steamship Limited.

This Planning Application was refused, 20th January 2014 on these grounds:

The proposed development by virtue of the lack of onsite refuse storage arrangements for the occupiers of the proposed residential apartments would lead to conditions that would detrimentally impact on the highway contrary to advice in paragraph 35 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

From the Heritage Statement:

269 Westgate Road (Formerly 13 Ravensworth Terrace) is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest.

List Entry Number: 1024802
Grade: II
Date First Listed: 29 June 1976
Description: No’s 9-13 consecutive G.V II includes No. 269 Westgate Road. Terrace of Houses. Circa 1820. English garden wall bond brick with ashlar basement and dressings; Welsh slate roofs. Basement, 3 storeys and attics, 2 bays each. Steps up to 6 panelled doors; overlight with glazing bars to No. 13 at left; fanlights elsewhere, with glazing bars to nos. 9 and 12. Door cases to nos. 11 to 13. No. 13 has fluted pilasters with entablature. Ground and first floor sill bands, top floor projecting stone sills. A single storey flat roofed extension is present to the western elevation.
National Grid Reference: NZ 23938 64129

271 Westgate Road
is not listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. However, the building still contains many significant features, including intact doors and door sets, coving, ceiling roses and decorative pillars are all present. A three storey flat roofed extension is present to the eastern elevation that does not provide a positive contribution towards the character, appearance or significance of the surrounding conservation area.

The original fronts to the properties face Winchester Terrace where their large land-locked front gardens and strongly secluded with views surrounded by deep greenery.

In contrast, the rears which face Westgate Road, have received numerous alterations to windows and other original features. Alterations and extensions have been made to these properties as well as tarmac car parks and excessive external pipework, culminating in the dilution of character in the area. These car parks were once gardens similar to those at the front of the properties and so should be considered as a whole.

The chief aim of the project is to bring the buildings back into productive use. As the original buildings are residential in character, the brief was to convert the building back into dwellings and to provide high quality affordable accommodation for rent. A priority, given the historic heritage value of both buildings was to preserve the original fabric and remove the substantial accretion of unsympathetic later additions.

Backgound:

We have been instructed by our client St James’ Central Ltd to submit an application for internal alterations to a listed building at St James Terrace / St James Street. Mawson Kerr Architects have been appointed to look at returning the building to residential occupancy, whilst retaining the original character of the former residential properties.
The buildings are Grade II listed and are situated within Newcastle’s Leazes Conservation Area therefore listed planning consent is required with the associated Design and Access Statement. We have incorporated the heritage statement within the design and access statement. There are very limited external alterations proposed to the buildings

Anyone know what's happening with the older flats on Waterloo Street? I noticed scaffolding up the other day. Is it just window replacement or something more extensive (including internally)?
