The Watkin Jones Group has recently constructed a student accommodation development of 351 bed spaces together with approximately 30,000 sqft of Class A1 retail and leisure floor space within the centre of Brighton. Permission was granted in January 2013 and the development was completed in August 2014. The site was formerly a Co-op store and offices with a grand, locally listed façade. The façade has been retained as a feature within the frontage of the new building.
This development was subsequently sold to Knightsbridge Student Housing.
