Summary of Project
The Circus Street project will regenerate an old derelict site which was vacant for nearly 12 years. The site was previously grossly underused despite its sustainable and sought after location close to the centre of Brighton, the seaside and major public transport interchanges. The area in which it is located is currently one of the most deprived wards in Brighton and the regeneration of this brownfield site will bring both direct and indirect benefits for the local community and the city as a whole.
Coast to Capital invested Local Growth Funding to enable both planning and demolition works, that in turn brought a key development partner on board to carry out the building works of mixed used residential, business, education and cultural space. This development is currently ongoing, and will create local jobs, A business space that is currently in high demand within Brighton, along with vast student accommodation, a much needed creative 'dance space', and new homes.
