Ryder lodges plans for Newcastle PRS scheme

Ryder Architecture's PRS scheme, designed for Heber Street in the Newcastle Helix development

Practice creates 179-home block for site formerly known as Science Central

Ryder Architecture has submitted a planning application for a 179-flat private-rented-sector development at Newcastle’s Helix project which was formerly known as Science Central.

The 13-storey scheme, designed for St James Boulevard Developments, is the latest project the practice has created for the 9.7ha site near the city centre. It used to house the Newcastle Brown Ale brewery.

Ryder last year produced proposals for a 9,300sq m office building for the site, which is being developed by the council and Newcastle University in conjunction with investment partner Legal & General Capital.
