The Core is a ground-breaking new development on Science Central, located close to St. James’ Park in Newcastle.
The Core will be the first building to open on the £250 million, 24-acre site which will be developed over the coming decade with a mix of business, university and residential buildings.
The Core will provide state-of-the-art offices for high growth technology and science-based businesses.
Plans for nationally significant new research facilities to be built on neighbouring plots are underway. In 2013 an announcement was made by Newcastle University to invest £50 million on Science Central.
The Core has been part-funded through the European Union Regional Development Fund 2007-2013 (ERDF) and by the Regional Growth Fund.
