Very nice scheme, really like the way it breaks up its mass and respects historical detailing.

Although it does seem high at 7 storeys, there has always been a vertiginous feel to Ouseburn (and Tyneside) in general. Scale is always misunderstood- so long as the proportions give a bit of elegant drama, rather than obese overdevelopment, it is okay. Sometimes its less impact to have a 7 storey tower at one corner to step down in others, than a 5 storey lumpen mass, spread out in equal measure to the red line boundary.

Hello Keith,
regarding the Portland Green project. It would be easier with less issues if duplex studios and 2 bedroom apartments were the layout. There is a mindset within NCC planning department which would potentially allow 10 more floor levels, with respectable levels of quality.
I have a map drawn of over 50 potential new build projects in Newcastle and Gateshead, from 6 floor levels and above, there are excessive amounts of student accommodation being presented to NCC.
Regards
Stuart Prouse. Sent
