North Tyneside Council is offering a lease to those prepared to invest in the landmark - and the more creative the idea, the better.

Stephanie Hewson, from North Tyneside, was the victim of a violent sexual assault in Whitley Bay in 2009.
Two teenagers have been arrested after a 63-year-old was knocked to the ground and robbed in Whitley Bay.
The man was walking along Rockcliffe Road at 10.50pm on August 20 when he was approached from behind. He suffered minor injuries.
Two boys, aged 16 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of robbery.
These are the first pictures of the new video installation showing what Mars may look like in 200 years time.
Artist Kelly Richardson's video is a detailed construction of the surface of Mars in a couple of centuries when it is littered with barely functioning spacecraft and consumed by dust storms.
The exhibition - Mariner 9 - has opened in the Spanish City Dome in Whitley Bay.
It coincides with the landing of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity, on the Red Planet. Richardson uses NASA imagery and Hollywood scenery generation software to create her apocalyptic vision.
A reward of £3000 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of those responsible for a serious sexual assault on a woman three years ago.

It has taken immense courage for the victim of this crime to come forward, who has been left badly shaken and afraid to leave her home at night as a result of her ordeal.
I would urge anyone with information on this crime to come forward with information, no matter how insignificant they might think it is, to help bring this callous individual to justice. We only want to know what you know, not who you are.
