Regenerating Lewes – Atelier is set to be Lewes’ most exciting new live/work location of 2020

11th August 2020

We are very excited to be working on a fantastic new project in Lewes, that is regenerating a disused area of land around the Brooks Road area. This creative development site is being delivered through a joint venture between Gold Property Developments and Cross Stone Regeneration and will include new public spaces to relax in, creative business units for growing local companies, and 41 apartments.

Atelier Commercial Units – adding colour to the Lewes economy

The first phase of the scheme to be released is the new business space which is designed to complement the artisan shopping and café culture of Lewes perfectly. Local businesses can enjoy increased trade from the new residents and workers and explore new collaboration and supply chain opportunities.

The studio units will be from 600 sq. ft. and can be combined to create larger spaces. There is an opportunity to rent or buy, so the spaces will be suitable for both start-ups and established businesses that can operate within the B1 use category. The B1 use category covers a wide range of business types and will include offices, design studios, craft and artisan making uses, etc.

Encouraging creativity and collaboration

Each studio will have its own shopfront style façade with full height windows offering the opportunity to advertise the business within and also move large goods in and out – perhaps photography sets, scenery, printing equipment or other exciting creative kit. The natural light will be preserved whilst creating dual-level space using rear mezzanine levels. These will be ideal for people watching and window gazing for inspiration during meetings and whilst working on creative projects.

Atelier has already piqued the interest of very many local businesses looking to expand or branch out. We have been receiving a healthy number of enquiries for the commercial units and are confident this will in time help to create new job opportunities within the Lewes community. It’s no surprise that the units are attractive to small businesses as Lewes has so much to offer along with its excellent transport links to Brighton and London. It will be a fantastic location to work in; employees of the businesses can enjoy the new public spaces, relax in the recreation ground, or indulge in some boutique shopping during lunch breaks. Not to mention the fantastic array of local restaurants ideal for client meetings and the new business community that will be created that will certainly encourage supportive and collaborative working between companies.

The developers hope to make an exciting announcement shortly about the delivery of the residential phase of the scheme.
