CPS lease offices at Terrace Hill's Hudson Quay 1, Middlesbrough

The Crown Prosecution Service has taken more than 16,000 sq ft of brand-new office space at Terrace Hill's Hudson Quay 1 at Middlehaven in Middlesbrough.

The CPS, who have taken one-and-a half-floors of the three-storey building, will begin fitting the offices out next week and will move in during May this year. They will be relocating 115 staff from Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough.

Hudson Quay 1 comprises a 30,700 sq ft high-specification office building, developed by Terrace Hill and the Helmsley Group, which have set the standard for the Tees Valley Regeneration flagship development at Middlehaven.

Hudson Quay is the first part of Terrace Hill's 142,500 sq ft Manhattan Gate site, which will consist of five office buildings. The remainder of Hudson Quay is available to lease.

Martin Vickerman, the property director of Stockton-based Terrace Hill in the North East, commented; "We are delighted to welcome the Crown Prosecution Service to Middlehaven. The arrival of such a high-profile and established organisation is a massive vote of confidence in this ground-breaking development".

"We are very proud of our first building on the Manhattan Gate scheme. The views are spectacular and it has to be one of the best buildings available in Middlesbrough at the present moment," he explained.

Benefitting from a waterside frontage, Hudson Quay offers an outstanding location with direct access to the A66, only a short walk from Middlesbrough town centre with its shops and public transport network.

Mr Vickerman said: "Hudson Quay is a fantastic start for the 200-acre Middlehaven regeneration scheme which will transform the area in Middlesbrough into an enjoyable place to be and provide both occupants and local people with a location to be proud of.

In addition to Terrace Hill's commercial development, Middlehaven will include new homes, open space, hotels and leisure facilities. One of the new occupants on the Middlehaven site is expected to be Middlesbrough College.

Hudson Quay was designed by Newcastle architects Red Box. This modern glass building allows views of the river to the front aspect and beautiful public art and landscaping to the rear. The building is constructed over three floors with a large central atrium in each building and there will be a café bistro joining both the buildings.

Manhattan Gate is the gateway to the business developments on Middlehaven with superb waterside locations, functional top class business facilities, set in an urban environment with close links to the town centre and fantastic national and regional transport links making it a perfect relocation site for large or small companies alike.

Terrace Hill and their agents, Dodds Brown and Storeys SSP, are working closely with Middlesbrough Council and Tees Valley Regeneration to provide a seamless and proactive relocation service. Together the partners are confident that the new scheme will be a huge boost to Middlesbrough, increasing general levels of trade in the town centre and being instrumental in both improving the employment levels and providing businesses with the stable workforce they need.

Middlehaven is one of the largest and most exciting developments taking place anywhere in the UK. The confidence in this scheme is shown by the value of both the public and private investment totalling £500 million, with the vast majority coming from private sector companies, who all believe in the success of the scheme.
