With a strategic design model the Live Theatre purchased the last remaining prime Quayside plot of land and buildings alongside the theatre with plans to create new commercial office space, a new public park and a children and young people’s writing centre.

Jim Houghton, Director of Avoca Consulting Engineers said: “This is an exceptionally exciting development for us to be part of and one which we are certain to be proud of in the future.  Playing such an integral design role within this major iconic development is a great achievement for Avoca.”

The development which is looking to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating includes the creation of a new landmark on Newcastle’s Quayside, as well as consolidating several historic buildings to create a business centre which will form a hub at the heart of Newcastle’s Creative Digital Industries which will transform this part of the Quayside.

Works are programmed to commence on site in Summer 2014 and complete in late Spring 2015.
