Pacific House – the first office centre on Eastbourne’s emerging Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park – has now been completed.
To coincide with this, a web site for the Innovation Park has been launched at www.sovereigninnovationpark.co.uk.
Twenty two prospective tenants viewed the offices on the first open afternoon last Thursday, 16 July, with a number reserving offices and further viewings booked.
Pacific House is a three-floor business centre of striking contemporary architectural design. With offices available within it ranging from 627 sq ft up to the whole 25,235 sq ft building, it is suitable for small, medium and large companies.
There are 11 small suites on the ground floor (from 627 to 952 sq ft), six medium-sized offices on the first floor (1,258 – 1,897 sq ft) and two large offices on the second floor (4,402 & 4,412 sq ft). If appropriate, these could be combined or sub-divided to suit occupiers’ needs.
In addition to the office suites, Pacific House incorporates a light-filled atrium, break-out areas for informal meetings and a conference room. It is designed to be a low-energy building with parking spaces for 130 cars.
Developer Sea Change Sussex – the not-for-profit regeneration company for East Sussex – has already received a significant number of letting enquiries from companies in Eastbourne and further afield.
In addition to the 22 prospective occupiers who viewed the property last week, further viewings are being arranged over the coming days. Sovereign Harbour Residents Association members and Eastbourne Borough councillors are also being shown the building in late July.
Buckingham Group Contracting began construction work for Pacific House in September 2014 and completed the project on schedule.
In addition to Pacific House, Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park has sites suitable for further business premises up to 80,000 sq ft. Companies can commission Sea Change to develop bespoke freehold or leasehold properties for them, or buy serviced sites to develop their own.
The Innovation Park project is designed to provide an economic boost to the area by providing high-quality premises and sites on previously disused land. It aims to help local firms expand and to attract companies to the area, creating jobs.
The Park is three miles from Eastbourne town centre and accessed from Pacific Drive, off Pevensey Bay Road. It is five minutes’ walk to the cafes, restaurants and boutiques of Sovereign Harbour’s prestigious marina, as well as a retail park including a large supermarket, cinema and gym.
