Sunderland City Hall


The City of Sunderland is going through some major redevelopment with projects including the new £42m City Hall and Civic Centre spearheading the councils look towards the future…

£42m City Hall and Civic Centre

Forming an integral part of the £500m Riverside development which is set to change the old Vauxhall site into thriving work and commercial location, the City Hall will be home to approximately 2000 occupants.


The new Civic Centre now sits alongside the City Hall on the plot that lay derelict for over two decades and replaces the old Burdon Road headquarters which is due to be demolished in the coming weeks.
