The Newcastle landscape has been slowly changing during the past few decades, shedding its predominantly industrial past for a more diversified commercial and residential future. This transformation has been accelerating in the past few years thanks to the investment being made by Newcastle City Council, along with the University of Newcastle and other government and corporate sectors.
