The Pioneer

A planet positive office development

Stirling Prize winning architecture practice, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, have created the ten storey Pioneer as a workplace that will be flooded with natural light and have stunning panoramic views and outdoor terraces. It will be technologically advanced, accessible and have human wellbeing and environmental considerations at the top of the list of design essentials.

The Pioneer is perfectly located right beside Newcastle’s central train station and just a short walk to the rest of the city centre, sitting where George and Robert Stephenson’s first purpose built locomotive factory was established in 1823.

A striking landmark building and gateway to the mixed-use development, The Pioneer will be one of a family of climate positive projects which support wellbeing and community at this central heritage site. Flexible floor plates and office spaces with a distinctive colonnade entrance and reception area to welcome visitors all add to the innovative and breathtaking offer for prospective tenants.
