Conran & Partners has submitted a planning application to convert Argus House, the derelict former offices and printing works of Brighton's Evening Argus newspaper, into a mixed-use development of homes, shops and workspaces. The £6 million scheme for developer City Lofts involves restoring the existing building and constructing new smaller housing blocks at either end. One of the blocks will be constructed by completely rebuilding a 1960s tower. The scheme includes 18 social housing units. The practice calls the initiative a 'model for inner-city development'.
