The Bruce Building

Grade II listed, historic landmark building providing studio apartments, offices, retail unit and hospitality units.

 The Bruce Building is a historic landmark building in the heart of Newcastle which has been developed by Philip and Mark Walton to provide hospitality, offices and apartments. There are 57 studio and one-bedroom apartments across three floors.

The development of this important listed building presented many technical challenges in design, planning and cost appraisal. However, all challenges were addressed without compromising the original vision to make it a great place to work, live and visit.
