NEW flats have been unveiled on the site of a former petrol station.

The Waterfront complex has been built on the site of the former Texaco garage site in Hove’s Kingsway, which was damaged by a lorry and closed in 2016.

The 108-year-old pub The Alibi, which closed in 2015, has also been converted into “flexible commercial space” with flats above as part of the scheme.

The new nine-storey block contains 55 flats, which are available for shared ownership.

The tower includes one, two and three bedroom flats with a four-bed apartment on the top floor.

A new 375 sqm Co-operative store is also part of the redevelopment plans, creating 24 full and part-time jobs and bringing £1.15 million to the local economy.

Agents Clarion Housing said: "The perfect seaside home.

"A collection of one, two and three bedroom homes available for Shared Ownership.

"With light-filled luxurious interiors and unique architecture, Waterfront is a distinctive addition to Hove’s vibrant seaside atmosphere – and the perfect place to make a home."

Many of the apartments have outside balconies or terraces.

But with such a spot by the sea, the homes are not cheap.

Three-bed flats are being priced at £560,000.

The two-bed flats are £435,000 and the one-bed flats are £277,500.

All have just one bathroom.

A showhome is now open at the site.
