168 flats available at Edward Street Quarter development

168 new build apartments have been made available to buy or rent off-plan in Edward Street Quarter, the £120 million redevelopment of the former AMEX House in central Brighton.

The development will offer a mix one, two and three-bedroom flats offering a mix of tenures from private sale, build to rent and affordable housing.

Mixed-use developers First Base and Patron Capital have appointed Oakley Property and Currell (now part of the Savills Group) as residential agents for the development, bringing their expertise in the Sussex and London markets, respectively, on board.

Chris Oakley, Executive Chairman of Oakley Property, said: “Edward Street Quarter presents a fresh vision of modern urban living not before seen in the city, so we’re very excited to be a part of the project.

“The development will help meet the demands of modern life, including parcel management services to make online shopping easier, areas for home workers, cycle facilities and storage units.”

The most exciting residential development to happen in Brighton for many years, Edward Street Quarter will offer residents access to the city’s cultural quarter, stunning seaside, buzzing Kemptown area and proximity to the central train station.

Anne Currell, director, Currell, part of the Savills group, commented: “We’re anticipating high demand from a range of different buyers, all seeking a sense of community and access to the city centre, including upwardly mobile professionals looking to situate themselves in a thriving business district, young families growing into their next apartment, active retirees looking to downsize and London commuters attracted to the seaside lifestyle.”

Steve Eccles, Project Director at First Base, commented: “We are delighted to bring Oakley Property and Savills onto the Edward Street Quarter team, as they share our enthusiasm for creating an exceptional and accessible new community for the city.”

Edward Street Quarter will also comprise 110,000 sq ft of office space, as well as 40,000 sq ft of retail, food and beverage and leisure units.

Prices for the scheme are yet to be launched, but for early interest enquiries please contact the agents via edwardstreetquarter.com.
