CZWG's Brighton tower plans 'on verge of collapse'

  • Comment

Opposition to CZWG Architects' 16-storey residential Endeavour Tower in Brighton threatens to scupper the project. The scheme - to redevelop the site of an old petrol station in Preston Park - has been faced with ongoing complaints from local campaigners since it was proposed a year ago.

Conservationist the Brighton Society has condemned the scheme, which comes in front of the city's planning committee on 7 February, as a 'heinous crime' on the city's skyline. 'This is out of proportion with the surrounding buildings and it completely overshadows the neighbouring conservation area, ' the society's secretary Selma Montford said. 'It is nothing but an ego trip for the developer and the architects.'

CZWG director Piers Gough said he was worried that the scheme would be turned down as there was so much resistance to any Modernist developments in the city: 'If it does not win support then we are unlikely to appeal because the developer already has a permission for a much smaller building.'
