Landmark Retail Development Underway

Construction has begun on a new mixed use development at Worthing’s ”gateway” entrance, on the corner of the A24 (Chapel Road) and Newland Road. The £5.5m development, which replaces the former Norfolk Hotel, will comprise 51 flats and approximately 10,000 sq ft of ground floor retail space. The development features a striking contemporary design and benefits from a large customer car park to the rear. The retal element can be sub-divided to three units to suit requirements. The uni(s) are available to rent.

The scheme, due for completion in mid-2009, is likely to appeal to edge of town retailers and showroom operators requiring substantial open plan retailing space, although potential also exists (subject to planning) for restaurant or similar uses. Further information, including a 3D visual presentation, can be obtained from Paul Brierley.
