The scheme, which will sit on a derelict 1.7ha site and provide 754 homes, was submitted to Brighton & Hove council today.
The residential elements of the scheme are incorporated into two towers of 21 and 25 storeys positioned on either side of a £46 million sports centre. Further accommodation will be arranged in a perimeter of buildings of between eight and 11 storeys.
According to developer Karis, which is working with ING Real Estate, the perimeter buildings are positioned to allow views through the site to the sea from adjacent streets.
These perimeter buildings will incorporate public open spaces and piazzas.
