The largest skyscraper in Sussex is the centrepiece of the £175m redevelopment plans for Brighton Marina, which also propose 1000 new homes and 400 new jobs
Andrew Goodall’s Brunswick Development Group submitted a planning application to Brighton & Hove Council today for the largest redevelopment scheme the Marina has seen in its 30-year history. The tower, which so far has proved remarkably uncontroversial, would be complimented by 3 smaller apartment blocks that would yield 1000 new homes, 40% of which would be affordable housing administered by the Guinness Trust either for rent or shared ownership. In an effort to avoid adding to the city’s congestion problems only 171 car parking spaces are proposed but 1000 secure cycle bays.
In addition over 3,000 sq metres of commercial space would be devoted to bars, retail and restaurants to service the residents and also attract visitors to the Marina. In all 14 new buildings are included in the planning application. The construction phase is expected to deliver 300 jobs. Once completed 100 new jobs are anticipated.
A roadshow will present the plans to the public at Brighton Town Hall on 24th November between 14.30 and 17.30, Hove Town Hall on 25th November from 8.30 to 13.30 and the Alias Seattle Hotel in the Marina on 26th November from 15.00 to 20.00 and again on 27th from 8.30 to 12.00 noon.
The Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership (BHEP) will be commenting on the proposals.
