ShedKM gets go-ahead for £100m Brighton scheme

  • Comment

Brighton Council has approved a £100million project by Shedkm to overhaul the municipal market on Brighton’s Circus Street.

The mixed-use scheme will see the former market transformed into 142 homes and 4,200m2 of offices and shops, creating a new ‘cultural quarter’ for the city.

Backed by developer the Cathedral Group, the project includes ‘two landmark public buildings’: a new home for South East Dance; and a library and teaching building for the University of Brighton.

As well as the 142 homes, there will be managed accommodation for around 450 students. The Circus Street scheme will also see a number of new public spaces, public allotments and roof gardens, and 78 new tress planted on the site.

Richard Upton, chief executive of Cathedral Group, said: ‘Our vision is to create a productive quarter of Brighton, economically and creatively, right on the site of the old fruit and vegetable market; a friendlier, greener neighbourhood where anything from seed swapping to roof top urban farming and orchard picking sits alongside art, culture, modern living and hi-tech start-up business.’

Liverpool and London-based ShedKM beat AHMM, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, John McAslan and Make to land the job in November 2012.
