WR Launch Serviced Apartments in Newcastle

Mark Walton and Chris Toye of Walton Robinson in The Bruce Building Serviced Apartments

In the wake of its triumph in overseeing serviced apartments within a prestigious £5 million central Newcastle development, Walton Robinson is embarking on a path of diversification within the market.

Elevating its commitment, the company has inaugurated a specialised division dedicated to the letting and management of serviced apartments on behalf of its clientele.

This strategic move was driven by the remarkable accomplishments stemming from its management of serviced apartments within the renowned Bruce Building, situated near Haymarket, which coincidentally serves as WR's own headquarters.

Among the 57 apartments nestled within the iconic Bruce Building, Walton Robinson was entrusted with the management and letting of a selection of serviced apartments tailored for short-stay sojourners to Newcastle. Notably, this encompassed a diverse spectrum, from business travelers and academics to medical professionals. The apartments, steeped in heritage as the former headquarters of Newcastle Breweries, enjoy a prime location, Grade II listed status, and a central hub that entice visitors to book well in advance.

This milestone has propelled Walton Robinson to introduce a dedicated serviced apartments division into its existing portfolio. This sector will seamlessly integrate alongside its established divisions, including sales, lettings, and new build homes. Over the recent years, the company has undergone substantial growth, accentuated by significant investments geared towards supporting its holistic development, particularly in the realm of technology and IT.

Demonstrating their commitment to evolution, Walton Robinson has recently unveiled its revamped website, waltonrobinson.com, executed in collaboration with developer Retox. An innovative facet of their service involves paperless e-documentation, marking a foray into eco-friendly practices.

Mark Walton, the Managing Director of Walton Robinson, elaborated on this strategic progression, stating, "Our recent years have been characterised by noteworthy expansion and advancement – establishing our foothold as one of the premier letting agents in the North East, while concurrently cementing our presence as a pivotal player within the sales market. Integrating serviced apartments into our portfolio constitutes an audacious move, underscored by our substantial expertise and experience to ensure its fruition."

He further added, "The resounding popularity witnessed from our venture into serviced apartments within the illustrious Bruce Building, with advanced bookings streaming in from global visitors, has spurred our vision. We perceive a distinct market niche and have endeavored to craft a bespoke, high-caliber service tailored to cater to other clients seeking serviced apartments. The robust interest we've encountered since its inception bolsters our confidence in the sustained triumph of this novel venture."

For those seeking a weekend city escapade in Newcastle, a prolonged stay while conducting business, or simply a leisurely visit, these apartments offer an optimal accommodation solution.
