A £250 million development to establish Middlesbrough as the leading digital city of the UK will break ground in 2020

Boho X is the first phase in a £250m development that will make Middlesbrough #TheDigitalCity of the UK.  It will see the creation of over 100,000 sq ft of high quality, flexible commercial office space in an iconic 20-storey tower making it the premier office destination for 100 miles.

Benefits will include:

  • Close proximity to the railway station with direct links to London and Manchester
  • Landscaped areas for event hosting
  • Helipad
  • Large car park
  • Meeting rooms and break out spaces
  • In house bike storage
  • 20 seater cinema
  • In-house gym
  • 200 seater lecture theatre
  • Beautiful in-house café

The development will also incorporate Boho 8, which will see the creation of 10,000 sq ft of bespoke modular office space delivered in Autumn 2020.

The development will be housed in the existing digital cluster of Middlesbrough – The Boho Zone – expanding facilities to meet the needs of this burgeoning sector.

Set to complete in 2022, the first phase will remediate 9 ha of Brownfield land, create c. 115,000 sq ft of prime business accommodation and include a complementary residential offer delivered by a third party developer.

It will lead to 1,000 new jobs in the digital and creative industries, rising to 2,000 jobs in future phases.

The project includes funding from Tees Valley Combined Authority, Middlesbrough Council, and a third party consortium. The development presents numerous opportunities for digital and creative businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to scale-ups and multinationals.
