Plans approved for Placefirst’s new residential single-family BTR neighbourhood in Newcastle’s West End!
jmarchitects are pleased to announce that plans were approved at committee for 146 new homes at Benwell Dene in Newcastle’s West End.
The development, located two miles west of Newcastle city centre, will transform this challenging brownfield site into a range of high quality two, three and four bedroom homes.
The design takes inspiration from the historic layout of the site, to work with the steeply sloping topography and preserve views across the Tyne Valley. The high-quality landscape design centres around public and community amenity spaces, integrating sustainable drainage through a network of rocky swales and attenuation features.
The scheme will be Placefirst’s most energy efficient scheme to date. A strong fabric first approach was employed which is then supplemented by high levels of air tightness, air source heat pumps, PV panels and EV charging.
We look forward to delivering this scheme with construction at Benwell Dene expected to commence later this year.
We are excited to see you all in London at the Workspace Design Show 2024!
