It is being designed to serve thousands of construction workers due to come to Teesworks as work gathers pace on major projects in the coming years.
The new services zone near the trunk road, at Lackenby will also feature a 4,500 sq ft convenience store, a family pub/eatery, and two restaurants.
Outline plans designed by Corstorphine & Wright will be submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council in the coming weeks.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “Jobs are being created here and now on vast projects like SeAH Wind’s offshore wind monopile facility, with thousands more to come through Net Zero Teesside and other exciting green energy projects.
“We’re already putting in roads and vital infrastructure to meet the demand of all the work we’ve got going on – and Teesworks Service Complex is yet another step on this path.
“This will serve thousands of workers coming to Teesworks, while also offering a welcome boost for nearby Grangetown and Teesville through stores and restaurants.”
Teesworks Development Director Matt Johnson added: “Getting this planning secured at an early stage will allow us to create a successful and sustainable development.
“There have already been strong expressions of interest and, subject to planning approval, we will be looking to advance discussions in the coming weeks.”
