The redevelopment of a historic telephone exchange into Jesmond Exchange, 17 one-bed and 19 two-bed apartments, featuring mezzanine layouts and industrial finishes in the heart of Jesmond, Newcastle.
Built in 1949 as the main telephone exchange in the area, Jesmond Exchange is now an art deco building offering Brooklyn style loft apartments.
Located on the edge of the South Jesmond Conservation area, Adderstone Group purchased the telephone exchange building in 2008.
Formally an office block, the building’s first and second floors have been converted into high-end mezzanine apartments totalling 55 beds. A further three large penthouse apartments have been built on the roof of the building to provide 70 beds in total. Ranging from one to six-bed apartments, the apartments at Jesmond Exchange offer a luxury living experience in Jesmond, the most desirable suburb of Newcastle upon Tyne, which is close to the city centre and Newcastle’s two universities.
The apartments are finished to an excellent standard including iron staircases and exposed beams, high-quality finishes such as kitchens and bespoke fitted furniture, incorporating and respecting the industrial history of the building.
Jesmond Exchange was voted Residential Project of the Year in the 2019 NE Insider Property Awards.
