Metrovick House

John Dobson Street
Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 8JF


  • Located on prominent position on John Dobson Street
  • Situated 200m from Newcastle's prime retailing street, Northumberland Street
  • Benefits from excellent transport links


Metrovick House has undergone a extensive refurbishment with the upper floors providing 63 high quality studios for students and a retail unit accessed from John Dobson Street. The ground floor includes a glazed frontage to John Dobson Street and return frontages to both Ridley Place allowing for a good level of passing footfall.

Service access is from Ridley Place and the unit benefits from a basement suitable for ancillary facilities and storage.


Metrovick House occupies a prominent position on the corner of Northumberland Road and John Dobson Street immediately adjacent to Northumbria University and 5 minutes from Newcastle University. The property is also situated only 200m from Newcastle’s prime retailing street, Northumberland Street, and therefore boasts impressive pedestrian flows especially at peak times.

Nearby occupiers include Frankie and Benny’s, Pacific Bar Café, BHS, Costa Coffee and the City Hall and Pool. There is ample car parking nearby with the NCP multi storey car park immediately opposite. The city centre location means Metrovick House benefits from excellent transport links, with Haymarket Metro station within 200 metres and bus stops on John Dobson Street and St Mary’s Place.

Additional information

The property has most recently been used as a ground floor retail unit and therefore already benefits from A1 use. We understand alternative uses including A2 and A3 would be permitted under the General Permitted Development Order.

Interested parties should make their own enquiries with the local Planning Authority.

The Local Authority is undertaking a major package of improvements to John Dobson Street to create a Boulevard style environment. Full details are available here:
