St James’ Boulevard was commenced as a regeneration corridor in the late 1990s. The corridor was completed by 2010 and includes the construction and completion of a 12 storey car-park, a hotel (Waterloo Square), residential/commercial accommodation (Citygate) and leisure facility (Dance City). The new corridor extended the gateway to the City out from its old City Wall line and land-locked the retail zone.
The only site that remains undeveloped along the City side of St James’ Boulevard is the Rutherford Street site.
The Business School Zone is part of the Science Central Regeneration project. The project brought large-scale regeneration to the former Newcastle Breweries site. The Business School Zone included the creation of a high-rise campus (up to 19 storeys). The entire development includes the Sandman Signature Hotel, Newcastle Universities’ Business School and circa 1,800 student accommodation units, amongst other retail and leisure assets.
This phase of regeneration is now complete and fully operational, and has been delivered in just over 5 years.

Newcastle University has secured funding from various sources to contract the construction of the Science and Civic phase of the Science Park in the next few years. The project is worth £350m and takes in 24 acres to create a mixed-use development with over 50,000 sq ft of office space. Separately, there are over 450 homes to be constructed on the northern edge of Science Central.
Hadrian’s Tower is located between Science Central and the City Centre on St James’ Boulevard.
This is the third national centre of excellence secured on Science Central – along with the National Centre for Ageing Science and Innovation, and the National Institute for Smart Data Innovation – bringing the total investment to £90m since the beginning of the year.
This builds on work that has already begun on Science Central, part of Newcastle’s Accelerated Development Zone, which has seen significant progress over the past year. The landmark building The Core opened in November 2014 and is full to capacity.
Newcastle University delivered the first research labs in The Key which opened in February 2016 and construction of the university’s £58 million Urban Sciences Building is also well underway, opening in summer 2017. In addition, design work is underway for a Learning and Teaching Centre and Newcastle Laboratory.
