ΓÇ£Get CarterΓÇ¥ Car Park to make way for office space as Tesco regeneration continues in Gateshead
A multi-storey car park in Gateshead, which is one of the most well-known locations from the 1971 classic film ΓÇ£Get CarterΓÇ¥ starring Michael Caine, could be demolished to make way for a mix of office space, retail units and a student village following a planning application submitted Spenhill ΓÇô the regeneration subsidiary of supermarket giant Tesco.
After the signing of a development agreement between Gateshead Council last month, demolition of the one-time film location is due to begin next month. In its place the area will not only see brand new office space in Gateshead for local businesses, but also 45 retail units, a 900 berth student village, new town centre parking and a Tesco store. It is also believed that there will be additional space that could potentially be developed into a hotel.
The Trinity Square scheme forms the centre of a sustainable regeneration scheme for the area, with the investment from this project hoping to act as a catayist for future regeneration. Designed with sustainability in mind the development scheme will apparently exceed all current legislation as it seeks to be the very modern model of a 21st century sustainable community.
