Edward Street Quarter to create new social hub for Brighton

Edward Street Quarter, the redevelopment of the ex-Amex House site owned by First Base, will create a vibrant new social hub for the city, placing public space and community at the heart of the scheme.

As the biggest office development to come to Brighton in 25 years, Edward Street Quarter has been designed intentionally to enable collaboration and bring people together across the whole neighbourhood.

Three distinct new greenspaces will encourage play, improve pedestrian connectivity around the area, and provide pleasant places to sit and eat lunch or sip coffee.

A large roof terrace will provide open space for networking events and after-work relaxation – not to mention beautiful sea views.

“We’re excited to deliver a new destination for the city’s local businesses, residents and community members to meet, socialise and ultimately enjoy what we’ve created,” explained Steve Eccles, Project Director at First Base.

“We are in talks with independent retailers, cinema providers, bars, restaurant and cafes, that align with our plans to deliver a lively and attractive place to live, work, play and visit.”

The new neighbourhood will deliver 110,000 sq ft of commercial space, 39,000 sq ft of retail and leisure units and 168 new apartments.
