Architect Allies and Morrison will shortly be submitting a planning application on behalf of developer Beetham for a 42-storey residential tower in New England Square, adjacent to Brighton station.
The tower, part of the New England Quarter development, creates a public square with pedestrian connections between the station and the London Road. The scheme will comprise a 200-bed Radisson SAS hotel, 160 residential apartments (35% affordable), a cafe, shops and a conservation park. The masterplan involves a total of 8.75 ha of land to the east of station that has been unused for more than 30 years. The project team include structural engineer Yolles, services and environmental engineer Buro Happold, planning consultant Drivers Jonas and conservation consultant Feilden + Mawson.
