Eldon Square Shopping Centre Redevelopment

The development involves the demolition of the existing shopping centre mall and a multi-story car park between Clayton Street and Newgate Street and rebuilding it to provide a new four-storey Debenhams department store and two-level modern shops along a wider mall. Work will be completed in Spring 2010.

The car park just before demolition. See my photos of the Greenmarket taken just before the demolition.

Love the site !
I can't help but think this new development is a missed opportunity to create something beautiful ! Still its an improvement on the car park .

Thanks.
I'm not overly keen on the new look either. Newgate street now seems a little squeezed now.

I lived in Newcastle from 1999 - 2007. I went up recently and wandered round this area and round Chinatown/NUFC/Newcastle Uni. So very different now.

Round Chinatown and down to Eldon/Grainger area loads better - before there had been some developments of flats, now with some street improvements/pedestrianisation it feels like a smart little town - like a trendy little area. I liked it. Felt like what I saw started had finally been completed.

I still had an 'all you get eat' at Lau's Buffet King though - some habits never change!

But if Ikon ever gets demolished - I will cry! I like how it had barely changed since Get Carter!
