- While Farrell reveals its gateway scheme for the city

  • Comment
Terry Farrell & Partners has released these images of its designs for developer George Wimpey's Ouseburn gateway scheme in Newcastle.

The £25 million project - which will overlook the River Tyne - includes a 12-storey residential block with 80 apartments and an adjacent seven-storey, 4,500 m2 office development.

In addition to a new promenade fronting the Tyne and a public square between the two buildings, the Farrell scheme also includes a café, a gallery and a restaurant.

Terry Farrell said: 'The design takes into account the council's vision for a mixed-use scheme on this site which was first proposed in December 2005, and we also ensured that the new proposals would seamlessly link with the future development plans envisaged within the Ouseburn Valley and onwards to Spillers Mill.

'The orientation has been determined to make the best use of natural light, and grass roofs have been proposed to deliver ecological and bio-diversity benefits.

'A scheme to minimise energy consumption and generate energy from renewable sources is also being investigated,' added Farrell.

A George Wimpey spokesperson said that if the project wins planning permission the developer hopes to complete the building in 2010.
