There are opportunities to lease or purchase bespoke purpose-built accommodation from 465 sq m (5,000 sq ft) up to 46,450 sq m (500,000 sq ft).
SWANS CENTRE FOR INNOVATION
The Centre for Innovation is a modern office building on Swans Offshore Energy Park which is home to a range of offshore energy, subsea and marine businesses, from startup to established companies.
The suites can be let individually or in multiples, with many of the occupiers already expanding into larger offices within the centre.
Plans are now in place to extend the Swans Centre for Innovation by refurbishing the upper three floors, creating additional space for innovative businesses to join the expanding offshore cluster that has quickly been established in the building.
TYNE TUNNEL TRADING ESTATE
This well-established commercial hub comprises industrial, storage, distribution and office space. It also has 40 acres of land available for development.
The estate is ideally placed, just off the A19 Tyne Tunnel approach road and minutes from the Port of Tyne, giving it excellent access to the rest of the North East and beyond.
Within the estate, the Axis 19 development offers an additional 215,000 sq ft of industrial accommodation, while the new Intersect 19 development boasts 300,000 sq ft of high bay units for industrial, commercial or distribution purposes.

The site is one of the largest in the North and can offer bespoke units ranging in size from 40,000 sq ft to 1.5 million sq ft.
The site is well connected – located to the north of Newcastle, it offers ease of access to the A1, A19 and A189 arterial routes.

Quorum is less than four miles from the centre of Newcastle, enjoys excellent transport links and also benefits from an on-site sports club, cafes and training facilities – all of which make it a hugely attractive location for ambitious businesses that want to attract the best talent.
COBALT BUSINESS PARK
If you want to know just how good the most successful office park in the UK is, just ask some of the many blue-chip companies based on Cobalt: Procter & Gamble, Accenture, Siemens, IBM and Santander are just some of the big-name brands that have chosen to make it their home.
Cobalt Park is one of the best-connected and sustainable parks in the UK, located just off the A19 and close to the Tyne Tunnel. Over 450 bus journeys pass through the park everyday with direct links to Newcastle City Centre, Northumberland, West End of Newcastle, the coast and the Tyne and Wear Metro system.
Once fully occupied, it is expected some 18,000 people will work there, all of whom will enjoy a range of exclusive staff benefits including onsite amenities, activities and events, plus lifestyle and travel discounts.
STELLIUM DATA CENTRE
Stellium, based on Cobalt Park, is the largest purpose-built data centre campus in the UK. Offering the power, space and flexibility to meet today’s business requirements, whether it is scale hosting and e- commerce or cloud computing, advanced analytics and support for the Internet of Things. The campus occupies some 11,000m2 of net technical space and comprises 12 individual IT halls within three separate data centres.
Each data centre has been completed to a powered shell standard, in order to facilitate bespoke fit-out.
In addition, the site has the benefit of new and advanced connectivity to the UK fibre backbone network, providing the highest levels of speed and capacity.
PORT OF TYNE NORTH ESTATE
The Port of Tyne is the principal northern gateway to the UK and a key port in the North East and North Sea.
The Port operates with six business areas; Logistics, Car Terminals, Cruises and Ferries, Estates, Marine and Environmental Services and Conventional and Bulk Cargo, ensuring a dynamic trading hub for the region.
Thirty hectares of the Port’s North Estate, Whitehill Point and Royal Quays Enterprise Park, fall within the North Bank of the Tyne Enterprise Zone, which provides further incentives for investors in the offshore sector including enhanced capital allowances.
The Enterprise Zone has also been identified as one of six of the UK’s dedicated CORE (Centres for Offshore Renewable Engineering) sites. It is estimated this will bring 7,000 new direct jobs to the area, with at least as many new indirect jobs in the local supply chain.
