Pilgrim Street – Regeneration of Newcastle’s City Gateway
Tuesday 12 March 2019 10:00-10:30 Invest Newcastle Stand, C.19
Once one of the city’s two main medieval thoroughfares, Pilgrim Street was directly connected to the original Tyne Bridge. Pilgrim Street is a threshold between the renowned streetscapes of Newcastle’s city core to the west and the city regeneration opportunity to the east.
The redevelopment of the eastern side of Pilgrim Street presents an excellent opportunity to regenerate Newcastle’s City Gateway from the Tyne Bridge approach, speaking of the city’s history, its culture and its aspirations for a successful and vibrant future.
Avison Young and Ryder Architecture will present proposals for the three city blocks to the east of Pilgrim Street that will bring high quality office, bespoke hotel, city centre living and leisure development around new public spaces and a revitalised public realm. Proposals include Bank House, a significant landmark development at the southern point of Pilgrim Street that is set to be the catalyst for the regeneration of the wider area.
