Centre North East, formerly Corporation House, was built in 1974. It is, at 19 storeys and 70.7 m (232 ft), the tallest building in Middlesbrough. In 1996, as Corporation House, it was purchased by The Marchday Group Plc.
The main two lessees, British Telecom and the Secretary of State,[who?] had under four years to expiry as of their purchase by Marchday. When they had vacated, an extensive refurbishment took place in which the building was modernised both internally and externally including new exterior lighting.
In 2004, Centre North East was fully let and sold to the Kenmore Property who went into administration late 2009.
In 2009, companies using the building include Erimus Housing and the COPC registered Garlands Call Centres. In May 2010 Garlands Call Centres went into administration and employee numbers within the building dropped to just over 50. In the Summer of 2010 the building was sold to Commercial Estates Group. In January 2012 significant refurbishment work was undertaken to interior communal areas of the building, including a newly refurbished reception, electronic entrance doors, and redesigned CNE logo.
In 2016, the building was bought by the Stockton-on-Tees based company, Cliff Court Developments Ltd. Extensive redevelopment is planned.
