That must be this then?I understand that the recent announcement relates to the 'Ice Factory' and 'Heaney's' sites shown on this plan:
Well if they are starting in May it must be something that already has planning permission? Any ideas?I doubt they are trying to resurrect that scheme. The press release refers to town houses and larger flats, and that scheme isn't either of those. Also, that scheme only relates to the Ice Factory site, not Heaney's.
This 'vision' by 1NG shows a long green space along that bank of the Ouseburn:Good to see the progress being made - I wonder what the land here towards Ouseburn Bridge is going to be treated, i.e. what's going to there?
Was out and about yesterday 17/01/12 on a cold frosty day turning milder by the minute, to both north and south sides of the River Tyne (generally east of the Millennium Bridge) and took the following photographs ( hosted on Photobucket) of the site to east of the Ouseburn just up from the public house (opposite side to recently completed The Toffee Factory redevelopment covered elsewhere on this forum)From Toffee Factory thread.
Yes, this is an image from 'An economic and spatial strategy for NewcastleGatehead' - Urban Design Framework for the Lower Ouseburn.
Still a block of flats shown but good to see they are moved out of the line of sight that the Free Trade Inn enjoys.
everything's flat pack these days kay:Those 2 green-clad "tower houses" seem amusing.
4 stories high with one room on each level and just a spiral staircase between them!
Excellent setting for a comedy, but not very practical (neither for nocturnal visits to the kitchen or bathroom, nor for furniture removals. How do you get a bed up a spiral staircase?).
Yes, there's still interest in this site.
There are pictures elsewhere in the thread, of these plans.
The plans for gardens and roof terraces are interesting.
Of course if you choose to live there, there will be noise from the various pubs and people walking by etc.
