Newcastle nightclub to be demolished for student housing

Newcastle nightclub Liquid and Envy, on New Bridge Street West, will be torn down and replaced with three blocks of housing for 305 students

 

A Newcastle city centre nightclub will be demolished and replaced with accommodation for more than 300 students.

The city council has given the go-ahead for Liquid and Envy nightclub, which occupies a 21,000sq ft site on New Bridge Street West, to be razed with three separate seven, nine and 11-storey blocks containing 50 apartments to be erected.

London-based estate agent Magnetic owns the site and the Grade II-listed Dobson House, which lies in front of it, will be refurbished and restored, along with the Oxford Galleries portico.

As well as student housing, the designs also include 16,145 sq ft space available for a retail unit and a café.
