Aykley Heads, Durham City

32 hectares

A new business district located at the Aykley Heads site, combining new high quality office development set within an exceptional, established landscape.

Durham City is a thriving city founded in 995 AD, with a world class university and an internationally significant Cathedral and University, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The total area covers around 32 hectares and aims to provide up to 50,000 sq m to accommodate up to 6,000 jobs in professional services and emerging technology sectors. It will combine a high quality office development with world heritage site views, set within an exceptional landscape providing an opportunity to bring a new business focus to this historic City.

The site has excellent transport links and is located next to the East Coast railway station, and less than one mile to A690, providing excellent access to the A1(M).

The opportunities for developers and occupiers on this site have been made possible through the re-location of Durham County Council’s civic building to the city’s riverside. Great things are happening in Durham City with major mixed use regeneration projects already underway in the city centre at the Riverwalk and Milburngate.
