Sale rumours about Gehry's Brighton proposals rubbished by Karis

The developer behind Frank Gehry's King Alfred scheme in Brighton has dismissed any rumours that it is hoping to sell the site as 'complete and utter rubbish'.

Karis, the company backing Gehry's development, has hit out at claims that it is hoping to back out of the development after it was rumoured that it had been approached by another investor wishing to buy the site to stop the Gehry project.

Karis' managing director Josh Arghiros said: 'These people are off their heads, and keep inventing little stories to slow the entire process down.

'They are the ones who are stopping the development of Brighton and see it move with the times.'

Arghiros admitted that his company has had to re-advertise further information about the development, this time on microclimate issues surrounding the Gehry scheme such as rights to light and wind.

Arghiros said: 'We have re-advertised further information following a request from the planner. We are keeping to the rules and regulations laid out in front of us in order to have a tight planning application ready for when we submit near the end of March.'
