Edward Street Quarter, the former AMEX house site owned by mixed-use developer First Base in partnership with Patron Capital, has 39,000 sq ft of food, beverage, leisure and retail units available to lease as part of the 150,000 sq ft development.
The units will be spread across five of the buildings as part of the development. Agents SHW and CF Commercial are targeting a vibrant mix of food and beverage, leisure and retail companies to lease the units, with various sizes on offer to suit individual requirements.
Leaseholders will have access to a ready-made customer base from the 2,000 office workers and residents of the 168 new-build apartments within the development, as well as from the residents who live locally to the Edward Street area.
Richard Pyne, Partner, Retail and Leisure Property at SHW, commented: “We’ve already had a number of conversations with potential leaseholders and have many more lined up. This development is one of the most exciting to hit Brighton in over two decades and with so many other developments going up, it’s a great time for companies to expand into the city.”
Craig Fisher, Director, CF Commercial, added: “Brighton is one of the most exciting destinations in the UK outside of London in terms of development. Edward Street Quarter is a great example of the type of project that will set the bar for others to follow.”
Steve Eccles, Project Director, First Base, explained: “We’re creating a new neighbourhood in central Brighton. With a ready-made customer base, a thriving local economy and high demand for more retail, leisure, food and beverage options locally, Edward Street Quarter represents an unrivalled opportunity in the city.”
