A MASSIVE 2,000 workspaces are available to lease in the largest commercial development in central Brighton in the last 25 years.

Edward Street Quarter is the £120 million redevelopment of the former Amex House in Edward Street, Brighton.

There is 110,000 sq ft of office space available.

The demolition of the building is complete with construction set to start in the summer.

There will also be 168 new homes, cafes and restaurants, gyms, cinemas and shops.

Gavin Stewart, executive director, Brighton and Hove Economic Partnership, said: “It’s no secret that Brighton and Hove is in desperate need of additional housing as well as Grade A office space to support many of the 16,000 businesses which exist in the city.

“This development delivers just that along with a range of additional enhancements that will support the local community to the East of Brighton for generations to come.”

Steve Eccles, project director at developer First Base, said: “The growth of Brighton’s creative sector has been frustrated by a shortage of quality workspace, so we anticipate strong demand for the space we are delivering at Edward Street Quarter.

“We look forward to working with our agents to create an exciting mix of businesses, cafes and restaurants at this new neighbourhood in central Brighton.”

Edward Street Quarter will also have three new public spaces created by renowned landscape designers Spacehub.

Cushman & Wakefield, CF Commercial and SHW are agents for the development.

The space is targeted for Brighton’s booming media and creative sectors and wider corporate community.

Meanwhile, the 168 new homes will be a mix of private and affordable units.

First Base is a privately-owned mixed-use developer specialising in major urban renewal and placemaking, particularly in partnership with the public sector.

It works with architects including Fletcher Priest, AFK, Make, BuckleyGrayYeoman and AHMM to create vibrant and sustainable neighbourhoods.
