A £1.5bn opportunity

Count the cranes. Sunderland is building itself a bright new future. 

More than £1.553bn of private and public money will be invested in the city by 2024.

From vibrant seafront to city centre renewal, from the spectacular Northern Spire bridge crossing the River Wear to the International Advanced Manufacturing Park offering a location of national strategic significance, Sunderland has opportunities across manufacturing, business, retail and leisure.

New hotels are attracting new visitors. New road links are opening up under-used business areas. Major investment at both Sunderland University and Sunderland College supports the city’s workforce and safeguards its future.

Partnership working across public and private sectors is transforming the city centre, bringing first class office space, attractive living areas and retail and lifestyle opportunities.

Sunderland’s £1.2bn of investment will help you build your business. 

MAKE it Sunderland.
