An iconic mixed use development on the bank of the River Tyne.
To support the regional ambitions for business and visitor growth by creating a vibrant new waterfront location and improve connectivity with the wider area.
The new waterfront complex at NewcastleGateshead Quays will host international conferences and exhibitions as well as music and cultural events, and will be operated by renowned venue management group, ASM Global, and now known as The Sage. The scheme also includes a dual branded hotel together with bars and restaurants. The site is just minutes from Newcastle City Centre and is expected to provide a £70m boost to the regional economy and create over 2,000 jobs in the hospitality and leisure sector.
We’re delighted to announce that our partner, ASM Global, has secured a ten year sponsorship deal with North East based FTSE 100 company, The Sage, for the arena-led scheme on the bank of the River Tyne.
When it opens in 2024, The Sage will be the region’s biggest business and entertainment development and is expected to welcome more than one million visitors every year.
We’re pleased to report that enabling works have now begun. This is a significant step forward for developing the site, with BAM appointed to do the initial preparation works including installation of hoardings.
Full construction work will begin next year.
We are delighted to confirm that the dual branded hotel will feature a 187 room Novotel which will be the brand’s newest design as well as a 140 room ibis with a vibrant public space and lounge. Appealing to a broad range of customers and forming an integral part of the scheme, the hotel will have direct access into the conference and exhibition centre which is a key consideration particularly for event organisers when choosing a venue.
