In recent years we have embedded ourselves in this tight-knit community which was once home to a thriving shipyard; while the docks may have sadly ceased to operate, the heritage of what was once at the heart of this community remains and that’s why our vision is to create a neighbourhood which embraces the best of days gone by, whilst injecting new designs, new homes, new public spaces and breathe new life into this beautiful Tyneside site.

Right now, the first 34 homes have been created on site, many of them occupied; 80 waterfront apartments in the Smokehouses are also under construction and will complete this summer.

“This is such an exciting development for North Shields and North Tyneside as a whole…Smith’s Dock is a site with a lot of heritage and I’m grateful to both Places for People and Urban Splash for being so considerate with the work and making sure that this site, which has been such a huge part of North Tyneside’s history, will play a big part in its future as well.”

Elected Mayor, Norm Redfearn
