A complex development of retail, 250 new student units and leisure uses on an existing multideck 1970’s shopping centre.
The site is adjacent to the River Wear and creates a new riverside promenade lined with restaurants and a cinema overlooking one of England’s most sensitive historic views, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Durham Castle and Cathedral.
