Toffee Factory, Newcastle

Opened in December 2011, Toffee Factory began development in 2009 when Creative Space Management was appointed to undertake a preliminary feasibility study. The company undertook further detailed business planning, marketing and systems development, finally being appointed to operate and manage the building from December 2011. Within 12 months the building reached 100% occupancy. Using local networks and an understated marketing campaign, the building has been widely acknowledged as huge success and has triggered further development in the lower Ouseburn Valley including the recent announcement about the HCA/Newcastle City Council site immediately opposite Toffee Factory. Creative Space recruited and employed the team and have steered the governance of the project working with their characteristic transparency and open working methodology, throughout the winding down of 1NG and the transition into local authority asset ownership.

what our clients say

We love being based in the media centre as it is an aspirational building within the new media scene of Leeds. We can also take our clients to some top quality bars and restaurants that are right on our doorstep. At the end of the day, we run a successful business, and to do this it helps if we are around other successful businesses.
