Baltic Quarter

Baltic Business Quarter navigation

Baltic Quarter, at the heart of the region's urban core, is one of the UK's most exciting development opportunities.

Located next to the iconic Gateshead Quays, it will be an innovation district with a dynamic environment in an urban setting.

This 14 hectare site has been earmarked as the prime location for business and office development for up to 4,000 jobs, and is an emerging business district for digital and technology driven companies.

The quarter is already a destination of choice for innovation clusters, high growth businesses and leading edge institutions including Northern Design Centre, PROTO: The Emerging Technology Centre, Northumbria University's Innovate Campus and Gateshead College's £35m Baltic Campus.

The area provides opportunities for mixed-use office, residential, leisure and ancillary retail development to support a thriving, vibrant community of entrepreneurs.

As well as this, the council has broken ground on an exciting new Grade A office development, Riga, next to Baltimore House on the quarter. The 5,500m² high specification office development is designed with growing businesses in mind. These companies could occupy half, whole or many floors. Get in touch if you'd like to enquire about the space.  

Baltic Quarter has UKSPA status, which combines business and academia. While the District Energy Centre provides occupants with low-cost heat and power.
