Breaking News ! An abandoned Gateshead car dealership could get a new lease of life as a drive-thru coffee shop. Cliff Court Developments are behind plans to transform the former Evans Halshaw Vauxhall dealership in Blaydon into two commercial units, with interest from Seattle’s most well-known coffeehouse, Starbucks. The developer has lodged plans with Gateshead Council to convert the Bridge Street former showroom into two separate drive-thru units. If it goes ahead the building will be extended to accommodate one of the units. The firm is currently in talks with the coffee giant in a bid to sign it up for one of the units.
. The developer claims the project will turn the disused site into a "new hub for the Blaydon community" as well as bringing new jobs to the area.
John Taylor, regeneration specialist at Cliff Court Developments, said: “We are excited to start work on regenerating the vacant Evans Halshaw Vauxhall dealership. “The plan is to transform the dealership into two separate drive-thru, commercial units and change the outside showroom into a fully functional car park with some electric vehicle charging points. “Starbucks is a well-known name that will bring some great benefits to the local economy through job creation, if all goes to plan.”
