Plan to develop land between the Sage Gateshead and the BALTIC revealed
Nov 06, 2014 06:30 By Mike Kelly



An ambitious plan to develop a prime piece of land between on the Gateshead Quayside has been revealed.

Gateshead Council is looking to begin the process, later this month, of appointing a development partner for the project between Sage Gateshead and the Baltic. It says the site has great potential to make a positive impact on Gateshead’s economy and contribute towards the Council’s long term aim of improving the Borough’s finances in a tough economic climate.

Leader of Gateshead Council, Mick Henry, said: “Gateshead Quays has already seen hundreds of millions of pounds invested over the last couple of decades. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Sage Gateshead and BALTIC have all become really powerful symbols of the entire region. This site has the potential to complete the picture and we’re going to be looking for a development partner who is as excited by the opportunities here as we are. Realising the economic potential of sites like this can play a major role in helping to create much more dynamic and resilient economy across the whole Borough. Fundamentally, we expect any development on this site to bring jobs to the area and support growth.”

The Council says it is deliberately not being prescriptive at this stage as to what it expects to be built on the site. The main expectation is that the development is ‘mixed use’ rather than dominated by one particular use, to create a vibrant area throughout the day and night. The proposed site stretches from Hawks Road, opposite Gateshead College, to South Shore Road along the south bank of the Tyne. It includes both Mill Road Car Park and South Shore Road car park and an area of land formerly occupied by an industrial estate. Both car parks will, however, remain open until much later in the process.

Gateshead Council expects the process of finding the right development partner to be completed in the summer of 2015. No deadline has yet been set for the start of construction on site as this would be dependant entirely upon the chosen partner and the project decided upon.

What will happen to the Metro Arena if new venue in Gateshead is approved?
By Sean Seddon 15 August 2017

With plans for a new Quayside venue, the end is in sight for the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena - but what’s going to happen to it?

A spokesperson for SGM Europe said, if the plans for the Gateshead venue come to fruition, they would abandon the Newcastle arena. The company has no intention of maintaining two large venues within a mile and a half of each other, effectively confirming the 11,000-seater which opened in 1995 will close.

In September 2016, the council adopted a long-term development plan for that area of town, known as Forth Yards. Stretching from the Newcastle Heliport to the King Edward Bridge south of Scotswood Road, the land has largely been derelict since previous industrial tenants left. he arena sits right in the middle of this area so the council are already discussing how it can be incorporated into these long-term plans. It means that, once the new venue is up and running, it’s likely that the arena will be demolished to make way for homes, offices and commercial buildings.

A Newcastle City Council spokesman said: “We are working closely with SMG, the operators of the Metro Arena, to explore options and future opportunities should the venue relocate elsewhere. The area has significant redevelopment potential given its proximity to the Stephenson Quarter, Central Station, and the Newcastle Business Park, and we see principle future uses as office, leisure and/or residential in addition to planned development. We are committed to creating the right conditions to encourage investment and deliver economic growth. With this in mind, we adopted a Development Framework for the Forth Yards area in September 2016 which includes the current Arena site. This will help guide development and assist in creating a vibrant new asset for the city centre and help realise our ambitions for Newcastle .”

Top global architect to design £200m conference centre at Gatehead Quays

On Chronicle Live website 17/10/17

EXTRACTS

Architects HOK, who are renowned for top sporting and hotel developments around the world, are one of three companies appointed

One of the world’s top architectural practices has been appointed to design a £200m conference and exhibition centre on the Gateshead Quays.

Architects HOK - whose work includes the recently opened $1.3bn Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and a new basketball and ice hockey arena for the Barcelona sporting club - has been appointed to draw up plans for a 12,500-seater arena that would be operated by SMG Europe to replace the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle.

The new arena is set to open in 2021 as part of a development that aims to create 1,100 new jobs.

Gateshead Council leader Martin Gannon said: “The appointment of the design team is a critical and landmark decision for this project. All three organisations have global reputations and that shows our commitment to bringing a world-class arena and conference and exhibition facilities to the North East.

“Gateshead Quays is already one of UK’s most iconic riverside locations. We’ve always been clear that a high quality design for this site is paramount and we’re now ever more confident that the new buildings and landscape for this site will further enhance Gateshead Quays skyline and reputation.”

It’s not the only project in the pipeline which could transform the Gateshead side of the Quayside in coming years.

Next week, the North East Combined Authority will take a key step in pressing ahead with a 12,500 venue area between the Sage and the Baltic.

The £200m development will see the Metro Radio Area relocate, as well as a host of new shops and restaurants.

The plans will be formally signed off on Thursday December 7.

Gateshead Council leader Martin Gannon on site of proposed new conference centre

A new arena which will transform the face of the Quayside is set to move one step closer to becoming a reality.

The new 12,500-seat conference centre planned for the vacant site between the Sage and the Baltic will see the Metro Radio Arena re-locate to the Gateshead side of the river. Expected to create 1,100 job and attract 300,000 visitors every year, the new development will become a major leisure hub, with a host of new bars and restaurants on site.

It has long been the ambition of Gateshead Council to bring another high quality cultural landmark to the Quayside and a deal with private partners was finally reached back in July.

On December 12, the North East Combined Authority will meet to commit £5m of local growth fund money to prepare the site so building work can begin. Construction of the new conference centre on the 10-acre plot is expected to be completed by 2021. The decision will be made at a special meeting of the combined authority’s leadership board where another major spending commitment is also on the agenda: the International Advanced Manufacturing Park.

Plans to build a £200m Gateshead Quays conference centre move a step closer

Plans to build a £200m conference centre and 12,500 seat arena on the Gateshead Quays moved a step closer today.

It followed a meeting of the North East Combined Authority which provided good news for South Tyneside too. First, NECA endorsed the award of a £5m Local Growth Fund (LGF) grant which will go towards preparatory work on the 10 acre site between the Sage and the Baltic. It followed a conditional decision on the grant made by the North East LEP and marks the latest stage of the process for the ambitious project.

After the meeting, Gateshead Council Leader, Martin Gannon, said: “This is another welcome step towards Gateshead Council bringing a regional arena and conference and exhibition centre to Gateshead Quays which will not only bring new jobs but significantly boost the local and regional economy."

Gateshead Council will be borrowing £25m to help fund the scheme and, as well as the £5m coming from the North East LEP’s local growth fund, the rest from the private partners in the scheme.

Had the lead in time not been so short, a new exhibition hall/arena launched as part of the Great Exhibition which also formed a central hub and focal point for the exhibition would have good.

Vision unveiled for £250m development on Gateshead Quays

Press release from Gateshead Council @ https://www.gateshead.gov.uk/article/9786/Vision-unveiled-for-250m-development-on-Gateshead-Quays-
Vision unveiled for £250m development on Gateshead Quays


The grand vision for Gateshead Quays has been unveiled by Gateshead Council, development partners Ask Real Estate, PATRIZIA and world-renowned architects HOK.

Gateshead QuaysThe grand vision for Gateshead Quays has been unveiled by Gateshead Council, development partners Ask Real Estate, PATRIZIA and world-renowned architects HOK.



The ambitious image shows how the 3.84 hectare site will be transformed to incorporate a £250 million state-of-the-art, 12,500 seat entertainment arena, a convention and exhibition centre as well as hotels, bars, restaurants and extensive public realm.

Gateshead Quays, one of seven schemes officially backed by the Department for International Trade, has the potential to hold major music and cultural events, as well as conferences and exhibitions. It is anticipated to support over 1,140 jobs with well over half being newly created. Attracting an extra 296,000 visitors to the region it's estimated to boost the regional economy by over £30 million annually in future years.

The masterplan proposes that the development will connect the waterfront to the town centre and is the missing piece of the jigsaw creating a destination that will draw people across the Gateshead Millennium Bridge. Acting as a catalyst for the regeneration of the wider quays area including the 14 hectares at Baltic Quarter.

Cllr Martin Gannon, Gateshead Council Leader, has described the vision as "hugely exciting" and said: "Gateshead Quayside speaks for itself but there are still things to be done. What would you put between Norman Foster's Sage Gateshead, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge? It needs to be as innovative and striking as the suite of visionary waterfront developments that have went before so together with our development partners and architects HOK, we have come up with this. It is one of the most exciting development opportunities in the UK today I think it's absolutely the right thing to do in this location. This is a gamechanger not just for Gateshead but for the region."

Speaking on behalf of Ask and PATRIZIA Daniel Williams, Head of Development at PATRIZIA UK said: "Gateshead Quays is a great opportunity to work with Gateshead Council to create an exemplar development, one that fits ideally in our strategy of investing in significant mixed-use schemes in important regional centres.

Gateshead Quays 2"We are really excited to be involved in delivering the first phase of this flexible masterplan that will have a hugely positive impact on this strategic site, creating another appealing destination for the area."

John Rhodes, Director of sport and entertainment at HOK said: "With one the most amazing river sites in Europe the Quays project offers a unique opportunity to combine existing facilities such as the Sage Gateshead, in an exceptional new event and entertainment destination. We are delighted to be working with Ask, PATRIZIA and Gateshead Council on such an ambitious, and ground-breaking project."



Gateshead Council are continuing to work with their development partners with planning applications predicted to be submitted early in the new year.
