Mission

Newcastle Helix aims to help people live better lives. Easier, healthier, smarter and longer.
The Helix is Newcastle’s flagship development and is the only city centre quarter of its kind in the UK. Hundreds of researchers, businesses and progressive homeowners living and working side-by-side, along with great food, drink and entertainment venues and three beautiful new public spaces.
 

Activities

Over the next five years, the Helix will become home to university researchers, big businesses, startups, and hundreds of residents – along with some of the best food and drink outlets in the city. It’s a core part of Newcastle’s plan to deliver 14,000 new jobs by 2030 and already the biggest single regeneration site in the UK.
Newcastle is already the fastest growing tech hub outside of London, thanks to our incredible researchers, history of innovation and fantastic transport connections (Newcastle International Airport was voted the Best Airport in Britain and over 30 trains go daily to London).
And with the collaborations between businesses and Newcastle University’s world-leading data science, urban science and life science researchers, ground-breaking innovations will further boost Newcastle as an international tech hub.
As the businesses grow, there’ll be more job opportunities for local people, helping to create a thriving community that pushes Newcastle to the forefront of the digital revolution.
The Helix will also offer inspirational city centre living, with 450 innovative homes.
