Sites and Opportunities
Sunderland is open for business. More than £1.553bn of private and public money is being invested in the city by 2024, an ambitious regeneration programme creating new opportunities in advanced manufacturing, financial and customer services, technology, distribution, retail and leisure.
Partnership working across public and private sectors is transforming the city centre, bringing first class office space, attractive living areas and lifestyle opportunities, including development of the former Vaux brewery site. Build a factory, a distribution hub, or a research centre. Build offices, retail space, or new housing. Build a new future. MAKE it Sunderland.
The Beam is the first building to be built at VAUX, a ground breaking mixed use development at the iconic home of Sunderland’s former city centre brewery.
The stunning new £117.6m bridge across the River Wear is opening up development sites with superb transport links.
The 150ha International Advanced Manufacturing Park is one of the most important development sites in the country.
8.3 hectares of development land with Enterprise Zone status benefitting from the Port’s near-sea location, road and rail links.
Sunderland is a city by the sea, and the Seaburn project is creating opportunities for retail, leisure and residential development.
