Charlotte Square, Newcastle upon Tyne
6-8 Charlotte Square is a Grade II Listed property dating from 1770, within Newcastle’s Central Conservation Area and the Grainger Town Regeneration Area. Newcastle City Council owns the building.
The four-storey warehouse extension to the rear was added in 1920/30. It was proposed to refurbish the property to provide managed incubator and move-on units for new Software/Multimedia/ICT businesses.
It was important to retain Charlotte Square as the main business address to lend support and focus to the other cultural industries around the square and to help enliven the under-used public gardens, which were also subject to renovation.
