The redevelopment of the Milburngate House site and The Gates is set to completely transform the area, with brand new restaurants, cinemas, office space and housing.
This new-look riverside will also provide stunning views of Durham's historical beating heart, while bringing some modern architectural beauty to the banks of the Wear.
The relocation of the Passport Office and National Savings to Freeman's Reach helped retain about 1,200 jobs and was the biggest Government property contract outside of London.
We've taken a 35 year head lease on the scheme, providing certainty in the longer term as well as generating income.
