Sunderland, High Street West, Nos. 101-103,1 and 1a Bridge St





Early Modern


Extant Building

Hutchinson's Buildings (1-1A Bridge Street and 101-109 High Street West) was listed at Grade II in two separate List entries, to reflect its two main phases of construction. The name Hutchinson's Buildings is used for the rebuilt 104-109 High Street West and the name Mackie's Corner is used for the original 101-103 High Street West and 1 and 1A Bridge Street. Mackie's Corner (1 and 1A Bridge Street and 101-103 High Street West) is a handsome mid-C19 commercial design utilising fine-quality materials and 'Palace-fronting', which combine to produce a grand and well-detailed classical façade. The pilaster-clad domed corner references Newcastle's Central Exchange and illustrates the presence of stylistic influences from Grainger Town. The building has a legible and hierarchical original vertical plan-form with basements, ground-floor shops and living accommodation above. It retains a range of internal fixtures and fittings including chimney-pieces, joinery and plasterwork. LISTED GRADE 2
