A £30 million development has been described as the “final piece of the jigsaw” in the regeneration of a prime city centre site.
London-based developer Square Bay has unveiled proposals to create housing, office, retail space and a hotel on the Block J site in Brighton’s New England Quarter.
It is thought the scheme will cost between £25 and £30 million and create hundreds of construction and commercial jobs.
The area, known as New England Square, has remained a derelict site since the collapse of plans to build a massive 42-storey tower block in 2007.
The news has been welcomed by the city’s leaders as a “terrific vote of confidence in the city”.
