The former Baltic Flour Mill, used for grain storage, occupied an unused prime spot on the south bank of the Tyne River. It has now been regenerated and is now one of the largest contemporary art spaces in Europe.

The reopening of the Baltic will see not only job opportunities created on the social side, but also energy consumption will be kept to a minimum with its own energy centre that will convert its own natural gases into heating and electricity for the building.
