Hove housing association to demolish major office building to build 68 homes
Hyde Newbuild, part of the Hyde Group, has won planning permission to demolish its two-storey building in Davigdor Road and replace it with 68 flats.
The development will also include 700 sq m of offices at ground floor level and the building would range between four and eight storeys.
Accommodation would consist of 32 one-bed flats, 22 two-bed, and 14 three-beds. Forty per cent would be affordable – 27 units in total.
Each flat would have a balcony in addition to some communal gardens. There would be landscaping of the site, including over a dozen trees.
Thirty eight spaces are proposed in a basement car-park - eight for the offices, 30 for the homes.
The developer is also required to fund improvements to Davigdor Road, including providing a new zebra crossing, and to contribute towards local job creation.
Chair of the planning committee Cllr Phelim Mac Cafferty said: “It’s important that we’ve also retained 700 sq m of office space, as well as creating the 68 new homes. At a time when the city faces a critical housing shortage, the scheme is very welcome.”
