Newcastle from platform of Redheugh Bridge
Newcastle from platform of Redheugh Bridge
The derelict ground below the bridge platform is the City's next new area for redevelopment although its long period of disuse has led to a patchy woodland among the rubble. Prominent buildings are, from the left, St James Gate NZ2463 : St James Gate Development, Scotswood Road, Centre for Life NZ2463 : Centre for Life Visitor Attraction and St Mary's Cathedral NZ2463 : St Mary's Cathedral, Clayton Street West.

International Centre for Life

The International Centre for Life is a symbol of Newcastle University’s pre-eminence in the field of genetic research.

The Ł60million Millennium scheme combines a new block for the University’s Genetics department; a Bioscience Centre with office and laboratory space for private sector bio-technology companies; a visitor attraction designed to inform the public about genetics and the story of DNA; and Times Square, Newcastle’s first new public square for over a century. The architectural design of the complex responds to its context, while creating sufficient coherence and identity to establish a new quarter. ICL is a landmark urban regeneration project that celebrates and revives elements of Newcastle’s past. The architecture and urban planning actively promotes renewal, evolution and development, thereby mirroring the life-giving function of the building.
