This ambitious mixed-use project will provide a four-star hotel, leisure club with a pool, bars and a nightclub. Many of the properties are currently in use and Grade II listed, requiring careful coordination and considerate stakeholder engagement. Some of the buildings are in poor condition or inaccessible so detailed survey and assessment work has been required.
The city centre location presents considerable challenges, impacting access and logistics. To mitigate this, we are considering how the project can be built as this will impact on the design itself. We have been liaising with specialist providers to integrate these into the developing construction methodology.
Ian Tubman, Project Director at Malhotra Group commented, "We at Malhotra are delighted with the ongoing projects at our historic buildings on Grey Street and Mosley Street and the creation of these new and exciting venues for central Newcastle. We are very pleased with the support of our design team Space, Cundall, Vindomora Solutions and 360 group, who have enabled the project to progress thus far and we look forward to the successful delivery of these exciting projects in the near future."
The project includes the locally historic Bambras Hall; which reportedly was the first place that the song “The Blaydon Races” was first performed.
First-class development befitting the grandeur of Grey Street and the history of Newcastle city centre.
Collaboration with the client and wider design team to minimise disruption to the existing listed buildings has been essential.
