Land, regeneration and property developer, Tynexe Commercial Ltd, is certain that entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders from all industries will pull together, collaborate and help investment in the North East come back bigger, better and stronger despite lockdown having an effect on companies across most sectors.
With work at AirView Park, its new, soon-to-be-launched business park next to Newcastle International Airport, restarting shortly, Tynexe Ltd is confident that businesses will look to get the local economy moving extremely quickly and encourage significant growth once the crisis has passed.
AirView Park has already attracted anchor tenant, Bellway plc. The home builder is close to completing its new, multi-million pound headquarters building for approximately 120 staff and chose the Park due to its unrivalled air, rail and road connectivity, Enterprise Zone status and bespoke build flexibility.
Furthermore, interest in AirView Park from organisations both in and outside of the region had, before lockdown, also been encouraging. Working closely with commercial agents, Naylors Gavin Black, as well as the North East LEP, Invest Newcastle and Invest North East, enquiries from companies looking for a North East presence or larger offices were active.
Management of Tynexe Commercial Ltd are remaining fully positive about the site, especially as the proposed buildings, yet to be constructed, can be adapted to different requirements, suiting alternative ways of working or including new features now deemed necessary.
Mike Clark, Development Director of Tynexe Commercial Ltd and Dysart Developments Ltd explained, “The North East has always had a ‘can-do’ attitude and despite the recovery which the country is now facing, I’m sure that we will, as a region, come back stronger and with greater determination. Business confidence will return and that will bring new investment, growth and opportunities for companies to plan, once again, for the future.
“As developers, we are in somewhat of a fortunate position as AirView Park offers benefits that no other site can here in the North East. Having Bellway plc already part-occupying the development demonstrates just how attractive it is. Once Government restrictions are lifted further and business resumes, commercial activities should start to return very quickly, no more so than at the Airport, one of our key stakeholders only minutes away.
“So, for companies which had planned to look for new accommodation or an alternative North East base, or whose operational requirements may now have changed due to the pandemic, I’d encourage them to still get in touch as we are very much looking ahead and can easily adapt bespoke design requirements into one of the buildings not yet out of the ground.”
AirView Park is a new 175,000 sq ft business park offering premium commercial space on the outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne. It is only minutes’ drive from Newcastle International Airport, next to Callerton Station Metro link and offers flexible accommodation to meet bespoke requirements.
