Tees Valley Regeneration has agreed a deal with BioRegional Quintain for the £200m redevelopment of its Middlehaven site in Middlesbrough

Urban regeneration company Tees Valley Regeneration and BioRegional Quintain, a joint venture between Quintain Estates and BioRegional Properties, have signed the agreement to start work on the Will Alsop-designed Middlehaven project.

As reported in Property Week (news, 20.05.05,) the Quintain-led consortium was picked for the scheme in May last year.

Tees Valley is leading the project with English Partnerships and regional development agency One Northeast.

The site sits next to Middlesbrough Football Club’s Riverside Stadium and surrounds the Middlesbrough Dock area. While it is cut off from the Town Centre by the A66 and the railway, the masterplan includes a flyover with a slip road to Middlehaven and footbridges to enable easy access.

The plan comprises 1m sq ft (92,902 sq m) of development including 750 homes, shops, bars, restaurants and a hotel.
