Will Alsop's designs Middlehaven at the former Middlebrough docks 

The development is centred around waterfront land at the former Middlesbrough docks. It will include 750 homes, significant office space and leisure facilities, including a hotel, destination retail, bars and restaurants. Masterplanned by Will Alsop, the award-winning architect, the site is planned to be at the cutting edge of contemporary architecture and will combine world-class design with the highest standards in sustainable development. This one million square foot phase of Middlehaven will be the largest zero carbon development in the UK, and combined with our strong emphasis on design quality, Middlehaven represents a dramatic leap forward for regeneration in the UK. Middlehaven will include a collection of iconic structures conceived by the most talented and creative architects working today. There will be no other place in Europe with so many daring and exciting, yet sustainable and practical buildings standing side-by-side. BioRegional Quintain is working with English Partnerships, the national regeneration agency, which owns the land and has invested £40m in the overall project. Construction of a new Middlesbrough College began in September 2006 and will bring 20,000 students to the development. BioRegional Quintain Limited expect to begin construction in 2007. The initial stages of the development will include innovative residential properties focussed on the first time buyer, professionals, empty nesters and investors. Marketing to secure a hotel operator has begun. Leisure developments such as waterfront bars and restaurants will also be included in the early construction work.
