Long term vision

We took a derelict site on the banks of the river Tyne and used our long-term vision and ambition to deliver a vibrant waterfront community. We created a place which has become part of the city’s fabric and world-renowned views, that is still as beautiful today as when we left it.

Delivering quality

We knew this iconic location deserved the very best, so we worked with the best urban designers and architects to deliver spaces and buildings built to last. The Pitcher & Piano has received a Civic Trust award for its outstanding contribution to the quality of the local environment.

Local knowledge

The success of this place was all about the location. We harnessed the unique character of this historic riverside, blending old and new to create a truly special place. The new ‘blinking eye’ Millennium Bridge extended the boundaries of the city centre linking Newcastle and Gateshead, improving access and creating a lively 24-hour cultural quarter.

Resurrecting an icon

We restored the much loved former Co-operative Society warehouse, lain empty for many years, and gave it a new lease of life. We worked with our design team to sensitively restore the building and transform it into an elegant Malmaison hotel. This important historic building now takes pride of place on the Quayside.
