Iconic Newcastle building to get major refit

Posted by Marianne
July 4, 2013 in Office Partitioning

A largely vacant building in Newcastle is to undergo a major redevelopment, which will see it become a high-spec mixed use building.

The Bruce Building, once owned by Newcastle Breweries, has iconic status in the northern city. Grade II listed, it is presently only in partial use though, with most of it being vacant of tenants.

A recent private purchase from its previous owner, Durham University, will be the catalyst for this to change. Michigan Investments Limited, which also recently purchased an adjacent building too, has grand plans.

Spread across three floors, the building on Percy Street will see 60 luxury apartments developed, along with a food outlet and a number of retail units. There will also be a major  office fit out  office fit out, with high-end serviced work areas being released into the local market.

Talking about the plans, Mark Walton, a director at Michigan Investments, said:

“The project will transform the interior of this landmark building into an exciting new mixed-use development.

“Michigan Investments have acquired an exceptional property which is currently under utilised and requires care and attention to bring it back to its former glory.”

He went on to say that the group is excited about reinvigorating the somewhat neglected area of the city where the building sits.

Exactly how the offices will be laid out is unclear.

Most of them are likely to be designed in association with the tenants. With the optimum use of space essential to modern offices, the use of mezzanine floors and modern office partitions could be in the pipeline.
