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 on Newgate Street in July 2007 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!
