The North East Region is one of the UK’s fastest growing economies. At Cushman & Wakefield’s Newcastle office, our specialists can help you respond to the region’s increasing opportunities with expert real estate advice tailored to your business.
A destination for growth
With its international airport, three deep-sea ports and excellent road and rail networks, the North East region has superb connectivity to all major markets worldwide. It is also the only UK region other than London to export more than it imports. With strengths in advanced manufacturing, the regional automotive industry is renowned for its commitment to developing low-carbon and electric vehicles, while life sciences and healthcare industries are powered by firms such as GlaxoSmithKline, Merck Sharp & Dohme and Piramal Pharma Solutions. The region is also home to thriving FTSE 100 management consultancy firm Sage, 3D pioneers ZeroLight, and global giant Hewlett Packard.
The key to the growth of the North East economy is the region’s student population of over 100,000, together with one of the highest graduate retention rates in the UK. Both Durham and Newcastle are part of the prestigious Russell Group of research universities, and their collaborative approach to innovation with the private sector has strengthened the North East as a location for investment. The area also has a vibrant property market that stretches well beyond the city centres: salient examples include the 700-acre Team Valley Trading Estate, Doxford International Business Park, and the Metro Centre – Europe’s largest covered shopping mall and leisure centre.
