Land, regeneration and property developer, Tynexe Commercial Ltd, is looking for entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders from all industries to pull together, collaborate and help investment in the North East come back bigger, better and stronger despite the public health crisis having an effect on companies across most sectors.
Having temporarily paused work at AirView Park, its new, soon-to-be-launched business park next to Newcastle International Airport, Tynexe Ltd is confident that businesses will look to get the local economy moving extremely quickly and encourage significant growth once the outbreak has passed.
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.
AirView Park had already attracted anchor tenant, Bellway plc, which up until covid19, was close to completing its new, multi-million pound headquarters building. The national home builder had chosen the Park above others due to its unrivalled air, rail and road connectivity, Enterprise Zone status and bespoke build flexibility. Once construction resumes, the new HQ will be home to approximately 120 employees.
Furthermore, interest in AirView Park from organisations both in and outside of the region had also been encouraging. Working closely with commercial agents as well as the North East LEP, Invest Newcastle and Invest North East England, enquiries from companies looking for a North East presence or larger offices were also active before the lockdown.
Management of Tynexe Commercial Ltd are remaining fully positive about the site, especially as the proposed buildings, yet to be constructed, could also be adapted to different requirements, suiting alternative ways of working or including new features deemed necessary over recent weeks.
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 unprecedented situation 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, this demonstrates how attractive it is. Once Government restrictions are lifted 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 a 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.”
