Xsite Architecture bags key scheme in Middlesbrough regeneration - images

  • Comment
Newcastle-based practice Xsite Architecture has been given the go-ahead for the new centrepiece of the DigitalCity development in Middlesbrough.

The competition-winning £7.5 million Digital Enterprise Centre development will create 3,000m2 of office space and is being billed as the new home 'for digital industries in Tees Valley, bringing digital media and technology businesses together under one roof'.

Funded by One NorthEast and the European Regional Development Fund, it is hoped the four-storey scheme will serve as a catalyst for the regeneration of historic Middlehaven and Exchange Square areas - known locally as the BohoZone.

The areas have fallen behind the rest of the town in recent years, separated from the town centre by a railway line and the A66 trunk road.

Speaking about the progress of the project following the recent planning approval, Mark Elliott, business director of DigitalCity, said: 'We're very pleased to have Xsite on board for the construction stage of this landmark project.'

'[Xsite] was up against some big name competition, but its excellent knowledge of the site and the building, along with an ability to demonstrate a sound understanding of the task in hand, enabled it to secure the contract.'
