Riverside Sunderland

32 hectares
Mixed use


Riverside Sunderland will transform a 32-hectare site in the heart of Sunderland into a dynamic, carbon-neutral urban quarter.

The scheme looks to create:

  • 1000 new energy efficient homes in four distinctive neighbourhoods, doubling the city centre population and creating a vibrant new community
  • A new central business district with one million square feet of modern office space, complemented by space for small businesses and start-ups
  • A Culture House with a new city library and hub for creativity, making and learning
  • Beautiful parks and open spaces with new river crossings for walkers and cyclists

A number of key projects are underway:

  • A stunning new City Hall is open
  • The Auditorium, a 450-seat performing arts venue in the Fire Station complex is open
  • Legal & General have submitted plans for two new flagship office buildings, part of their £100 million investment
  • 120-room, four-star hotel in Keel Square is open
