New workspace in Hove

PLATF9RM has announced it will be completing the first phase of a 1114 m² workspace development in Hove Town Hall, Norton Road in October.

Located in the heart of Hove’s commercial district, and under half a mile of Hove station, the new location will provide a range of working spaces and membership options, from design-led co-working areas which encourage collaboration and fixed desks to private offices, phone booths and meeting rooms.

It will also have a lounge, café, showers, and a multi-use cultural space. Members will be able to make connections in the monthly socials, and benefit from regular business workshops and training sessions, as well as locally-sourced café facilities.

Seb Royle, founder of PLATF9RM said: “For two years running, studies by Lloyd’s Bank has found Hove to be the country’s most desirable postcode for homeowners between the ages of 25 and 44-years-old. PLATF9RM is catering to the needs of Hove’s modern occupants and we’re thrilled to deliver a roving population of young, creative professionals to the centre of Hove, bringing with them a wealth of benefits to local businesses and services".

The first phase of the development is in the old auditorium in Hove Town Hall and the second phase will be in the old undercroft on Church Road. This space used to be open for the public to walk through but has been covered up for nearly 25.

Since opening its first workspace in autumn 2016, PLATF9RM has been one of the city’s success stories - growing from 557 to 1,393m² in just six months. Once Hove Town Hall is completed by the end of 2017, this will jump to over 2,508m² of workspace. Membership numbers have risen from zero to 250 and counting, and the company has a target of 500 members for the next 12 months.
