Vaux is a 5.2 ha city centre site overlooking the River Wear in Sunderland.    The city centre development lies at the heart of the North East and within easy reach of Durham, Newcastle and Teesside.

The Vaux Masterplan sets out an ambitious and imaginative reinvention of this former brewery site, delivering high-quality office accommodation together with complementary residential, retail, food and drink, hotel and leisure uses, all linked to the city centre via the new Keel Square.

The Beam will be the first development on the Vaux site and will accommodate businesses looking for contemporary working environments from as little as 2,500 sq.ft up to 59,000 sq.ft.   The Beam will create links and opportunities with business big and small through collaboration, new technologies and data-driven growth. These opportunities exist for tech and non-tech businesses alike.
