FaulknerBrowns Architects has submitted plans for a 26-storey tower on St James’ Boulevard in Newcastle
The 12,500m2 tower will include 96 one-bedroom and 66 two-bedroom private-rental apartments.
The scheme sits on the site of a derelict former warehouse building which has been vacant for the past 12 years.
Paul Rigby from FaulknerBrowns Architects, said: ‘The design responds positively to the surrounding area and will bring new life to Rutherford Street which has largely been forgotten since the implementation of the Boulevard.’
Andrew Rennie, managing director of Citygrove, added: ‘It will form a key part of this area’s regeneration and further demonstrate the city’s attractiveness to inward investors.
‘The economic benefits for Newcastle are multiple including millions of pounds of additional household expenditure, increasing footfall and spend in businesses in the city centre.’
