Homes are selling fast on former Avenue Hotel site

Buyers searching for their dream homes in Whitley Bay have leapt at the chance to purchase new homes on site of the former Avenue Hotel.  

Twelve new family homes are being created on the corner of vacant plot, on the corner of Park Avenue and Brook Gardens – and four have been sold ‘off-plan’ in the first week of being on sale.

The development, due to be completed in August, will be a mix of three and four bedroom townhouses, as well as a ground floor apartment and maisonette.

It has been named Empress Point, after the old Empress Ballroom which was part of the Spanish City complex.

The homes are being delivered by Aurora Properties, on behalf of North Tyneside Council, and built by Kier. 

The Avenue pub stood empty for years and became an eyesore before being demolished in 2015.

Nearby, another former pub site on the seafront is also being considered for new homes.

Compass Developments Ltd recently exchanged contracts to buy the Whisky Bends pub site and has submitted a planning application for three four-bedroom town-houses, each with two parking spaces.

Anyone interested in viewing one of the properties at Empress Point are urged to move quickly and should make enquiries to or Tel: 0191 253 4815.
