The Arlington Group of companies has a strong track record and reputation for delivering strategically important regeneration projects in the North East, having attracted in excess of £250,000,000 of inward investment, created local employment and established strong communities.
These include DurhamGate, a 90-acre mixed-use development supporting over 1,500 jobs and providing quality new homes for hundreds of families.
Our focus on regeneration is also evident in Durham city centre both at Freemans Reach, on the eastern bank of the River Wear and Milburngate on the opposite riverside.
Freemans Reach saw us deliver new HQ offices for Her Majesty’s Passport Office and National Savings & Investments, complete with its own hydro turbine generating renewable electricity from the power of the river. The development secured 1,200 jobs and saw the creation of a new riverside walk and public square with cafe bar.
Milburngate on the western bank of the river is a brand new 6-acre city quarter located next to Durham railway station, providing over 450,000 sq ft of new, mixed-use development including a 92 bed hotel, boutique cinema, 153 luxury apartments, 60,000 sq ft of bars and restaurants, 230,000 sq ft of office space and 600 car parking spaces.
