Chesterfield-based Whittam Cox Architects secure planning for Hove neighbourhood regeneration
Planning permission has been granted by Brighton and Hove City Council for a new landmark build to rent neighbourhood, designed by Chesterfield-based company Whittam Cox Architects.
For client Moda Living and their funders Apache Capital Partners, this new residential project will provide 564 new high-quality homes designed for rent that Moda will own and operate as part of their long-term plans for this site. The apartments range from studios to three-bed and are spread across six buildings ranging from 2 to 13 storeys in height. Design proposals seek to establish the role of the Hove Station Quarter and create a destination that will benefit both the existing community and future residents.
Paul Rogers, Director at Whittam Cox Architects said, “We’re delighted that planning has been granted for this exciting new development which will enhance the character of the area and create a bespoke inter-generational village. The scheme brings together a new emerging multi building BTR typology which has a diverse architectural language that draws on the rich urban texture of Hove, whilst creating a distinct identity and sense of place.”
Tony Brooks, Managing Director at MODA added, “Whittam Cox Architects have played a critical and instrumental role in designing this complex scheme with us. They understand the Moda approach exceptionally well. This scheme is one of our first developments in the South East and also a new model whereby a Build to Rent neighbourhood with different buildings and streets/landscaping will be delivered as an integrated community.”
As part of the plans, a further 265 care community apartments will be developed by Mayfield Villages, a specialist retirement care village developer and operator and will include dedicated amenities such as a swimming pool, restaurant and village hall.
