On 15th September 2008, Phil Newbold, Senior Associate at Dewjo’c Architects, was presented with the Rose Bowl for Conservation for the restoration of Park Tower, the former Co-op Department Store. The Hartlepool Civic Trust Society staged the event and Joy Yates, Editor of The Hartlepool Mail, presented the awards


Park Tower, built in 1913, now provides 50 cutting-edge, city centre style apartments at affordable prices for first time buyers, owner-occupiers and investors. This landmark building has been restored and remodelled to an exceptionally high standard at a cost of £3.6m, retaining the unique stone facades. Each one of the 50 luxury apartments has been carefully designed to a high specification, encompassing a light and contemporary style whilst still retaining many of the beautiful original features of the building and retail space at ground floor level

The former Co-op Department Store is a Grade II Listed Building. Permission was granted by Hartlepool Borough Council to convert this landmark building into 50 luxury one and two bedroomed apartments, with car parking for each apartment at ground floor and basement levels. Park Tower boasts spectacular sea views from the upper floors and is positioned on the southern edge of the town centre at the junction of Park Road and Stockton Street. It had been derelict for many years although the ground floor was used as a night-club in the nineties


Middlesbrough-based developer Tony Collins said that the grandeur of the building and its prominent position prompted the decision to transform it into exclusive apartments. He said: “Phil has done an exceptional job in converting this unique building and it is exciting to see the transformation happening step by step. Many people remember shopping and working there and I am delighted to be bringing this landmark building back into use”


The first show home was opened for viewing in summer 2007 and completion was achieved in December 2008
