Plans for £3.5m Whitley Bay ‘luxury’ residential scheme gain momentum
The design of a £3.5m residential scheme in a North East coastal town has been put forward for a public consultation.
Led by Newcastle firm GRADONARCHITECTURE, the project will see the creation of a collection of new ‘luxury’ properties on the North Parade of Whitley Bay.
Currently occupied by the now closed 42nd Street pub, the site will become home to 22 two-bedroom open plan apartments under proposed plans.
GRADONARCHITECTURE architectural director Chris Allan, commented: “We are pleased to announce that the go ahead for a public consultation has been given for the existing 42nd Street Public House site as this will give the Whitley Bay residents chance to view the proposals and provide their comments to the project team.
“The proposed project is set to further diversify the residential accommodation currently on offer within Whitley Bay and will become an even more desirable place to live thanks to the added benefits of the wider regeneration in the area.”
Newcastle-based planning consultants Lichfields will submit the planning application on behalf of North Eastern Holdings Ltd.
Michael Hepburn, senior director at Lichfields, added: “The redevelopment of this vacant brownfield site provides an ideal opportunity to provide new homes in a high quality building.
“The proposal continues the successful regeneration of Whitley Bay’s seafront which has been led by the council’s redevelopment of the Spanish City and the seafront promenade.”
