UK: Supercity Aparthotels has released details of its forthcoming Brighton and London aparthotels.
The company has bought a 26,372 square foot city centre site in Brighton, adding to its portfolio of
three London aparthotels. The location, which was the former site
of Brighton's ice-skating rink, will feature 65 apartments and a
restaurant, across four storeys. The Queen Square site is located
between the seafront and Brighton train station.
Alexis Burton, managing director of Supercity Aparthotels, said: "We're excited to open our first development outside of London and it was only right that it be in a UK city that is not only a leading cultural centre, but also recognised as one of the UK's most diverse and liveable cities. With major occupiers from the finance and media industries having sizeable presence, it has long been recognised that Brighton's cosmopolitan corporate arena is growing rapidly, yet currently only six serviced apartment are available in close proximity. Supercity Aparthotels aim to fill the ￼growing demand for serviced apartments in the area with our brand new development, which is set to open in 2018."
The company will also open a fourht London property during 2017. Located on Furnival Street EC4, the converted former Jewish Chrinicle offices will feature 53 apartments, two offices, a gym, and an on-site gastropub, as well as car and bicycle parking facilities.
