This is how the new manufacturing park under construction on Teesside - which could be home to 5,000 jobs - is set to look.
Artists’ impressions of the multi-million pound development have been released as initial work continues on Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park, on the banks of the Tees, in Middlesbrough.
The 32-acre park will to be home to the first UK offshore wind research and development facility.
It will include nearly 70,000sq ft of office, workshop and laboratory space, industrial units and larger custom-designed buildings.
The park forms part of the Tees Valley Enterprise Zone, opposite Riverside Park Industrial Estate.
Commercial property firm Dodds Brown has now been appointed to market the development to potential tenants.
Stephen Brown, senior partner at Dodds Brown, believes the park will be of interest to international, national and local businesses looking for a prestigious base in the north of England.
He says: “Teesside Advanced Manufacturing Park will be a massive boost for Middlesbrough and the wider Teesside areas, as well as for those companies which choose to move there.
“Occupiers will be able to maximise effectiveness and profitability on a technology campus environment with likeminded, innovative and forward thinking companies.
“They will also benefit from enhanced enterprise zone status which affords up to a £100m corporation tax ‘offset’, in addition to £55,000 a year of property tax relief, and a flexible and highly skilled workforce.”
