With construction nearing completion at the new Circus Street cultural quarter, Brighton firm Carr & Priddle has been appointed by specialist developers U+I to help curate the perfect mix of retail and businesses in the spaces on offer at street level throughout the new cultural area of the city.
The spaces available have been carefully designed and located to appeal to a mix of independent shops, places to eat and drink and cottage industries. This offer is part of the wider Circus Street scheme, which will be home to roughly 1,500 new residents across a mix of uses including 30,000 sq ft office, new homes for rent, student accommodation and a new Dance Studio, attracting upwards of 70,000 visitors a year.
“We are very excited to be teaming up with Carr & Priddle and to bring the final spaces at Circus Street to the market for let,” said Rob Sloper, Project Director, U+I Plc.
“The curation of the ground floor units is incredibly important to us; the new tenants will be an integral part of the circus street community, serving and joining the thousands who live and work on site and welcoming the visitors from the city and beyond.”
There is a range of small and larger units ranging from 500 sq ft to 2,500 sq ft, suiting a mix of needs. The units are situated in or around the new public spaces and squares, where markets and performances can take place.
Leading specialists in marketing retail properties Carr & Priddle are expanding and have just moved into new premises with a shop front at 33 Queen’s Road, looking down and across Valley Gardens to Circus Street.
Said Wayne Priddle, “We are very excited to take on this important project just when the city is opening up again at last, and are looking for businesses to move in to create a village feel within the city community at Circus Street.
“We have come full circle, as we facilitated moving Brighton’s Fruit and Vegetable Market from Circus Street 20 years ago to a new wholesale market site at Hollingbury, freeing up this important city centre exciting new development and cultural area.”
