Sunderland go-ahead for £10m Eastgate Point

Along with greenlighting the 90,000 sq ft industrial project, the council approved more than 80 homes at Hetton-le-Hole.

Promenade Park Properties’ Eastgate Point scheme will see 19 industrial units  across seven buildings brought to a former Littlewoods site off Commercial Road in Hendon, with construction starting in Q1 2024.

Eastgate Point will also include an 18-space EV charging station and a drive-through coffee shop in a prime location to the east of the city. In a phased development, the first completion will be in 2025. BDN is the designer.

A Promenade Park Properties spokesman said: “We are advancing with conversations with a number of high-profile occupiers who can clearly see the vast potential of this exceptionally well positioned scheme.

“Demand for industrial space remains high, and to be able to offer such attractive units, with road, rail and sea links all in close proximity, just minutes away, means we expect to draw some fantastic occupiers to Eastgate Point.”

Units will be offered for rent or sale, with Promenade stating that energy consumption at Eastgate Point will be significantly lower than that of the older buildings in the area. The planning application was unanimously backed by the council’s committee.

The committee also rubber-stamped plans for 82 homes at Coal Bank Farm, Hetton-le-Hole, the scheme having been deferred at September’s meeting for a site visit. BDN is also the architect on this project, representing the applicant, Colin Ford.
