Smith’s Dock is taking its place, as the heart of a new neighbourhood.

Looking to the Future

Home is having room to breathe, and space to grow.

The design principles behind Smith’s Dock have helped us to create the kind of place where people love to live, and to call home.

Smith’s Dock is taking its place, as the heart of a new neighbourhood. This new coastal community will root itself in a wider, established place, a connected network and a stunning location. The kind of place where people love to live, and to call home., with a range of homes designed to suit every person, family and lifestyle.

Home is a chance to connect and a place to belong.

Great neighbourhoods aren’t built from bricks and mortar; they’re made of the people who live there. We want to make Smith’s Dock even better by learning from the best neighbourhoods around the world to design the kind of place that people like to live and love to be. That’s why this neighbourhood brings you plenty of green space, fresh air and access to the waterside.

Home is a castle to make your own

From growing your family to downsizing, Smith’s Dock offers a range of flexible homes to suit everyone’s needs.

A: The Plateau

Elevated above the former dockyard, this iconic new crescent of modern Town Houses is the definition of panoramic. These tall, roomy houses want to sea and be seen, with big windows and even bigger views.

B: The Docks

New Dock Houses will circle the former dock basin. Inspired by the tall, jostling houses of pre-industrial ports, these quayside homes will also host independent shops, cafés and restaurants on the waterside promenade.

C: The Terraces

These homes take their inspiration from the Georgian and Victorian townhouses of Tynemouth, and the colourful terraces of British seaside towns. The Terraces flow down the slopes of the former dockyard, offering coastal views, private spaces and communal gardens.

D: The Waterfront

Smokehouses will line the river’s edge, bringing you even closer to the Tyne. These waterside apartments take their inspiration from the simple smoke houses of the Fish Quay. They make the perfect home for those with seafaring souls.

Home is the life you lead both inside and outside

At Smith’s Dock, flexible homes meet flexible living whatever your lifestyle. We’re creating a real hub where all the things a community needs and loves are right on your doorstep. Served by local independent businesses, you’ll be able to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Smith’s Dock day and night. Whether it’s catching up over coffee or a place to run and play. That’s because we believe home is as much about what’s outside your front door as what’s inside.

At the heart of this new, riverside neighbourhood are three dock basins. Here you’ll find spaces to work, places to shop and thoughtfully designed public areas to enjoy. What’s more, the transformation of Smith’s Dock will open up new connections between the Fish Quay and Royal Quays, and from the town centre down to the waterfront, meaning even more choice is just a stroll away.
