Hadrian's Tower is a bold regeneration scheme which challenges the existing pattern of city centre residential development in Newcastle upon Tyne.
At the time of construction Hadrian’s Tower was the tallest building in Newcastle at 82m tall and represents an exception investment opportunity in the Privately Rented Sector.
Hadrian’s Tower is one of the most iconic projects ever undertaken in Newcastle upon Tyne and integrates high-quality architecture into the city’s famous central conservation area. The scheme has also regenerated a derelict brownfield site that has been vacant for over a decade.
The development has transformed Rutherford Street into a high quality pedestrian route into the city centre, improving connectivity between the city’s urban core and its Accelerated Development Zone to the west.
The project comprises the construction of a 26-storey reinforced concrete tower block containing 162 high specification apartments, comprising of 54 one-bedroom units, 102 two-bedroom units and 6 ultra-luxurious three-bedroom units with spectacular views over the city.
The residential building is fully glazed, using a unitised glazing system and each apartment is fully equipped and incorporate the latest SMART technologies.
Hadrian’s Tower was designed with a range of shared facilities and social areas including a laundrette, cafe, meeting spaces and a sky lounge with panoramic views over the city centre.
The project included the installation of a complex piling system linked to ground beams, together with preparatory works for the installation of the tower crane which was the second highest free-standing tower crane in the UK.
The structure is a reinforced concrete frame using a jump form methodology for the core which comprises three lifts and a central staircase. The programme for the construction of each floor was 9 days. The unitised glazing system provides both the highest-levels of quality control with off site manufacture and speed of installation for the programme.
At the time of construction Hadrian’s Tower was the tallest building in Newcastle at 82m tall.
"One of the most significant housing investments undertaken in Newcastle City. It will bring many millions of pounds of inward investment to the city and result in a more diverse residential community adding to the vibrancy of the city centre economy."
