Waterfront community site is starting to take shape.
The Middlehaven partners recently appointed Teesside-based Terrace Hill as a preferred developer after a design competition which received interest from a number of local and national development teams.
The company will work up proposals for a 1.77-hectare section of the 16-hectare Middlehaven phase one.
This will include four office buildings, retail and cafe units and a multi-storey car park arranged around a dockside promenade with landscaped courtyards and public squares.
Philip Leech, director of Terrace Hill, said: "The office accommodation will be of the highest specification and will feature leading-edge information communication technology systems. Glazed atria and facades will maximise the role of light and space to create a unique working environment."
English Partnerships, the national regeneration agency, Middlesbrough Council, regional development agency One NorthEast, Able UK and Tees Valley Regeneration are working together to develop the site into a vibrant new waterfront community for the Tees Valley.
Terrace Hill expect to be on site in the autumn.
More than pounds 18m has already been pumped into reclaiming and cleaning up the site and more than pounds 100m could be spent in the coming years on redeveloping the former dock area.
