Westgate House (1972-2006)
Westgate House was 12 storey office block on Westgate Road opposite Central Station. This 'Brutalist' building was completed in 1972. The building was purchased by One North East in association with the Grainger Town Project with a view to redeveloping the site. It was demolished in 2006-7 after being voted for destruction by the public in the Channel 4 television series 'Demolition'. The council did not receive a single objection to the demolition !.
