Middlesbrough’s Boho Zone is the digital and creative hub of the Tees Valley, and the centre of ambitious plans to make Middlesbrough #TheDigitalCity of the UK.

The Boho Zone 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.

We’re consulting on the latest exciting proposals for the Boho Zone. We have new plans for Boho X and we’d like your feedback on our proposals. You can see our plans and take part in the consultation online.

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

Boho 8 is the latest development and is expected to be completed in winter 2020. The £2.3million project will provide additional space for companies already based in the Boho Zone that are looking to expand, as well as attracting new digital and creative businesses to the area.

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said: “Middlesbrough is firmly on track to becoming the digital city of the UK, and Boho 8 is another leap towards that ambition.

“It’s another step in a £250million investment in this flourishing sector which is already putting Middlesbrough on the map nationally and internationally.

“Boho is a key digital and creative hotspot, and it symbolises the sort of aspiration and ambition that will deliver jobs and prosperity for many years to come.”

Plans for the next stage of the development, Boho X, would include 60,000 square foot of office space, an outdoor cinema and sustainable orchard, a rooftop gym and indoor lecture theatre.

Updates on Boho X will be made available in due course.
