Multimillion-Pound Refurbishment Completes Newcastle City Centre Office Space

A city centre office building which neighbours the Tyne Bridge has reopened having undergone a multimillion-pound refurbishment.

Spire on Pilgrim Street has been revamped by owner Central Space into high-end serviced Grade A office space. The year-long works have turned the 1970s property into a series of suites ranging from four- person offices to fuller, 40-person floorplates.

The three-storey building, which overlooks the Tyne Bridge and offers views across the river to Gateshead, has also been kitted out to meet flexible working needs and is equipped with conference and meeting spaces. Other amenities include lounge with barista station, co-working space, unlimited refreshments and a manned reception.

Meanwhile a forthcoming roof terrace is planned to open later in the year. And potential tenants are offered 24/7 access with one monthly fee covering all utilities, including ultra-fast broadband, as well as office cleaning.

Central Space, which owns and operates the nearby historic Alderman Fenwick’s House, says it has experienced a significant increase in firms looking for hybrid workspace. The landlord has pointed to small and large companies looking for higher quality space that comes with amenities.

Spire is due to open this month with Central Space saying it has already received interest.

Marc Dixon, managing director of Central Space, said: “The quality is impressive while the attention to detail, and use of energy efficient, environmentally friendly construction methods within an existing structure ensure the new look building will appeal to occupiers with a sustainable focus and wanting a low carbon footprint.”

As well as its Tyneside office properties, Central Space operates the Falcon Court business park on Teesside, the Parsons Court location at Aycliffe Business Park, the Merchant Court development in Hebburn and office and showroom space at Kingsway Park in Dundee.
