Brighton’s new shopping and leisure destination takes shape
Redevco has started work on the redevelopment of the former Hanningtons department store in Brighton. The 1.3-acre site is being redeveloped into an exciting new retail and leisure destination and will be completed by mid 2018.
Redevco acquired the majority of the site in 2015 and an adjacent mixed-use property at the end of last year, taking the total amount invested in Brighton to £72m. Once home to the ‘Harrods of Brighton’, the area is an important landmark between the attractions of the Lanes, North Laine, East Street, the Cultural Quarter and Brighton Beach and Pier.
Hanningtons Estate combines larger stores fronting North Street, with smaller units in Hanningtons Lane, plus a small number of new apartments, which will be available to rent.
Redevco portfolio director Andrew Foulds said: “We are creating a new Lane, a new entrance to the historic Lanes from North Street and are redeveloping existing buildings on North Street, to provide exciting new spaces for shops, restaurants and cafes.”
Leasing agents are KLM Retail and GCW.
