City centre living on an affordable budget at The Forge

Is this Newcastle’s most Instagrammable address?

At least, this is the question being asked about the city’s latest apartment development where there’s certainly #nofilter needed.

Snap happy residents can settle into life at The Forge in Newcastle, with its slick and stylish interiors.

The brand new professionally managed ‘build-to-rent’ apartments have been tastefully interior designed by award-winning Manchester’s KONCEPT ID and are available with the funkiest of furniture in a picture-perfect Quayside location.

Photo opportunities aren’t in short supply, as the development’s residents’ facilities are well worth showing off, including a fully equipped gym, space for fitness classes and a club lounge.

Other added lifestyle perks include a social programme, workspaces and cycle storage racks at no additional cost, as well as exclusive promotional offers to redeem anywhere from coffee shops to hot yoga pop-ups.

Standing tall on Forth Banks, the development is within walking distance of the best bars and restaurants dotted along the riverside promising a stylish night out or envy-inducing bite to eat; whether a glass of bubbles at recent arrival Signor Prosecco, or a five course tasting menu at Newcastle’s only Michelin-starred restaurant House of Tides.

The city centre’s shopping and leisure scene can be easily reached on foot too, as well as trendy hang-out spots Boiler Shop, Wylam Brewery and the Ouseburn area’s creative culture hub.

The Forge’s dedicated letting manager, Helen Douglas-Teggart says:
“The look, feel and location of The Forge were carefully chosen to mirror the aspirational lifestyle the development aims to deliver for residents; from the colour schemes and furnishing choices to being on the edge of the up and coming Stephenson Quarter on the Quayside.”

The Forge is the city’s first build-to-rent development, offering individuals seeking a high-quality rental with a fair tenancy and flexible lease terms. It is still a relatively new concept to the UK but is already popular in other European countries and the US.

Helen added:
“As well as living in a first of its kind development in Newcastle, those who move in can really maximise the added benefits that build-to-rent living brings, as a dedicated concierge will be on-site 24/7, there to make life hassle-free however they can; whether offering advice on the best places to eat out, or simply being around to sign for an online order.

“Show apartments are open now for anyone interested to browse, and find out more about life at The Forge.”

The development will comprise 283 one, two and three-bedroom pet-friendly apartments set across three blocks, with unrivalled facilities and amenities.
