A key regeneration project helping to transform central Middlesbrough has welcomed its latest tenants.
Albert North comprises 10 historic buildings refurbished for modern use along the key route between Middlesbrough Rail Station and Centre Square.
The vibrant development in the town’s Historic Quarter includes office space, urban living developments and food and drink operators.
New tenants LouTom Media chose Albert North as their base for expansion into the North East.
The Liverpool-based marketing and advertising agency, which also has offices in Edinburgh, moved into the Albert North development in early October.
They will also be joined by interior designers Cocoon & Bauer, who will move into 21 Albert Road in early November.
Cocoon & Bauer owner Peter Turner said: “We needed to expand and as we’d always had our heart set on opening a showroom we had a few places in mind.
“With the success of the redevelopment of Albert Road and the growing community, I felt this was the perfect location for us to become a face on the high street.”
The Albert North development is a joint venture between Middlesbrough Council and property developer Jomast.
The development already houses a number of small to medium businesses, including award-winning digital companies which have flocked into Middlesbrough as it becomes an established digital cluster.
Tenants of Albert North benefit from rent and business rate incentives, high speed broadband and opportunities to collaborate with other companies located in the site.
Middlesbrough Council City Centre Manager Michelle McPhee said: “It’s great to see more new businesses join this unique opportunity at the heart of Middlesbrough’s ambitious regeneration programme.
“The Historic Quarter and Boho Zone are now firmly established as the place to be for cutting-edge creative and digital, retail and leisure businesses.”
