McLaren is appointed as principal contractor for Edward Street Quarter, a mixed-use development that will deliver 170,000sqft of Grade A offices, alongside space for independent coffee shops and restaurants. The project will also include 168 new homes, comprising a mix of private and affordable units to meet local demand.
Demolition of Amex House is complete, with construction set to commence in May 2019. The project will employ over 1,000 people on site over the duration of the development and support up to 2,000 jobs when complete.
The scheme, designed by BuckleyGrayYeoman, is inspired by Brighton’s eclectic street scene and will introduce a new, high-quality public realm, with three new public spaces created by renowned landscape designers Spacehub.
First Base is developing Edward Street Quarter in partnership with Patron Capital. The joint venture secured planning consent for the development in July 2018.
