The Baja Development.

This morning I had to walk down to Gateshead so I thought I would carry on walking down to the riverside. I took a couple of shots from the High Level Bridge but had to abandon my mission because of the surprising number of people heading in both directions. Social Distancing was not being practised. The Swing Bridge was even worse with groups of pedestrains mostly heading for the Riverside Walk, dog walkers and worst of all cyclists.

The story of Buffalo Joe's, Pipewellgate, Gateshead as it goes up for sale

Chronicle Live website article from 09/06/20

EXTRACT

The story of Buffalo Joe's as it goes up for sale

The gloriously tacky Gateshead nightspot was a hit for years - but eventually, the party had to end

It was the Quayside's gloriously tacky version of Coyote Ugly.

Now Buffalo Joes, a true guilty pleasure on the North East nightlife scene, is back on the market.


Full article on Alcopops and Mike Ashley: The story of Buffalo Joe's as it goes on the market

Some views of the building taken by myself

River Beat looks a nice place to sit out- must admit though, never been.

Gateshead side surprisingly always gets sun on a summers evening (because its not that north, and the sun sets North of the river), with the By the River etc. the River Beat- maybe something under Brett Oils, could there be a mini regeneration of Gateshead bars looking back at Newcastle, but this time without a boat blocking the view?

I was driving past the other day and must admit I was starting to wonder why they didn’t just knock it down in the first place as there’s not going to be much original building left! 🤷‍♂️
I'm guessing the developers have went for a refurb style planning application to avoid a longer planning application if they went for a full demolition, retaining river walls etc. The planners probably advised them to do tbh as less hassle on both sides.
