Modo Bloc to develop Coxlodge Co-op site

The regional developer has secured planning permission for a £3.2m residential project at John Street in the Newcastle suburb.

Newcastle-based Modo Bloc aims to build six homes at the disused plot, hoping to start work in June.

The firm said that six townhouses will be designed to a premium specification, built using the latest materials to minimise environmental impact. They will all feature their own garden terraces.

George Jenkins, managing director of Modo Bloc, explained: “This is a small but exciting opportunity to build some modern, much needed homes in this suburb of Newcastle.

“The site is currently an eyesore to the community, and this investment will breathe fresh life into this abandoned site.

“Our consultation with local residents showed a real desire to demolish the dilapidated building and redevelop the site with smart, contemporary homes.”

The scheme will be delivered by Modo Bloc Construction using loval suppliers where possible.

Elsewhere, Modo Bloc is currently well under way building seven design-led, four-storey townhouses at the Ropes, an exclusive development overlooking the Ouseburn Valley and River Tyne, Newcastle. This £4.2m development is due to be completed and marketed this May.

The ambitious developer has several big residential projects in the planning pipeline, including other sites in the Ouseburn and a large residential project on the outskirts of Durham.
