Redevco opens new shopping district for Brighton
Hanningtons Lane has opened to the public and visitors are able to walk down Brighton’s newest Lane for the first time. Redevco and its main contractor Westridge have been working hard on the creation of the city’s new retail and cultural quarter for two years and retailers are now starting to move in and fit our their stores.
The first tenant to open is The Flint House, a glamorous new dining concept from the Gingerman Restaurant Group. Hot on its heels will be independent ice cream maker Brass Monkey in a few weeks time. Watches of Switzerland and Oliver Bonas are also busy fitting out new stores on North Street.
One of the first retailers attracted to the redeveloped Hanningtons Estate was Habitat in November, joining existing brands such as White Company, Kurt Geiger, Sandro, Maje, Cath Kidston and Flying Tiger.
Andrew Foulds, portfolio director at Redevco, said: “This has been one of the most challenging but rewarding projects many of the construction team have ever worked on. Years in the making, the people of Brighton and visitors to the city can now see Morgan Carn’s designs brought to life.
“We hope that as retailers open and visitors wander through the new Lane, visit The Flint House roof terrace, see Puget’s Cottage revealed for the first time in 150 years and experience our green wall and exciting new art projects, they will appreciate how much thought and detail has gone into the project. We have sought to create spaces for modern retailers to thrive within an already iconic part of the city, but to respect the heritage and architecture of the area.”
