Based in the heart of Middlesbrough, Boho is the digital and creative hub of the Tees Valley, and the centre of ambitious plans to make Middlesbrough #TheDigitalCity of the UK.

The area known as Boho is located opposite Middlesbrough railway station. The Middlesbrough we know today grew from just a few streets in this area, into a booming industrial powerhouse – an ‘Ironopolis’ respected the world over. The area now houses one of the North East’s most prominent digital and creative clusters, attracting national and international digital firms across fields like app development, game design and AR. Over the next few years, the Boho area will also welcome new residential developments, transforming it into a desirable urban location for people to live, work and enjoy what Middlesbrough has to offer.

Boho is a place for like-minded digital and tech experts to develop their talents. From their inception to their expansion, businesses have been created and nurtured by local talent. Many have global clients and are improving and developing digital processes for firms across a wide range of industries.

The next phase of Boho will welcome iconic new office structures as well as a mix of residential housing to suit the demand from an ever-growing community.

Boho X

One of the boldest structures to be added to Middlesbrough’s portfolio of office space. The 60,000 square foot building will attract more cutting-edge digital businesses to Middlesbrough, and will enable existing businesses to expand and grow. The seven story office building will be situated between Gosford Street and Feversham Street, within the south east of the Boho regeneration area. The office building will include a lecture theatre, café, swimming pool, gym, event space and public realm area.

The project is due to start this summer, completion is expected by December 2022.

Boho 8

Boho 8 is another new addition to the Boho digital zone. The £2.5million project will offer bespoke modular units for rapidly expanding companies already located in the area, as well as attracting new businesses.

The project is due for completion spring/summer 2021.

Exisiting Boho buildings

Boho One is the flagship building for the Boho area. Bohouse is the second development with a mixed residential-office offer. Platform Arts is home to a number of artists and offers space for exhibitions. Gibson House, known as Boho 4, is one of Middlesbrough’s oldest buildings and is the base for a number of businesses.

Boho 5 offers office accommodation for up to 50 small and medium sized enterprises in the digital and creative sector. Crown House, or Boho 6, has been beautifully restored keeping much of its original character and offers excellent office space with high speed broadband and is just minutes from the
railway station.
