Debenhams, Newcastle (15 Feb 2010)

There will be plenty of analysis of the new Eldon Square mall in Newcastle over the coming weeks, and reflection on the impact of St Andrew’s Way on the wider city centre.

In the meantime, here are a few preview shots, taken on my phone this evening, ahead of the opening in less than ten hours’ time!

Apologies for the poor quality, but they at least give an idea of what the Newgate Street frontage to Eldon Square now feels like after dark.

    [...] of people having a good look around. I was able to get some better photos of the street frontages (using a proper camera this time), but thought better of getting any interior shots, given how many police officers were [...]

    Hi Lauren, I believe Hollister is due to open in April. I’m pretty sure there’s a notice about jobs outside the store itself, so that’s probably a good place to look first!
