havelock place hastingsCompanies can now get top quality new offices in East Sussex on ultra-flexible terms in a pioneering move to address the Brexit market.

As part of the economic development programme for the area, Sea Change Sussex has introduced a three-month notice period in its leases which, innovatively, can be served by occupiers at any time. This is designed to provide an exceptional degree of flexibility for companies facing unknown market conditions as the UK plans its EU withdrawal.

These new terms are available as part of three-year leases for Sea Change’s small and medium offices in:

  • Havelock Place, Hastings: the high-quality development in the Priory Quarter town centre business district, with eligible units from 541 to 1,659 sq ft
  • Pacific House, Eastbourne: the contemporary new business centre in Sovereign Harbour, with units available from 627 sq ft upwards
  • A forthcoming business centre on the Bexhill Enterprise Park, with units from 600 sq ft upwards pre-letting now.

John Shaw, CEO of Sea Change Sussex, says: “Companies are telling us they still want to invest and grow following the EU referendum, but they feel the economic road ahead will be less certain for some time. So we’ve introduced new leases which means they can have the quality of new premises they want along with an extremely high level of flexibility to react to market conditions as they unfold.”

Havelock Place – a 24,192 sq ft contemporary office building – has now been completed and is ready to occupy in Hastings’ Priory Quarter town centre business district.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, visited the building on 29 August when it was in late stages of construction. He handed the keys to the first company to let offices there. Medica Group, whose expanding radiology business had recently taken on an additional 12 staff, has since fitted out and moved into the fifth floor.

The rest of Havelock Place is now available to occupy with offices ranging from a 1,353 sq ft unit up to the total remaining 20,372 sq ft on the ground, first, second, third and fourth floors.

The two ground floor units (1,353 and 1,483 sq ft) are also available for retail use. They front Havelock Road, the main pedestrian route between Hastings’ rail and bus terminal and the seafront, the pedestrianized shopping/café area and Hastings Old Town.

Havelock Place has been developed by Sea Change Sussex as part of the economic development programme for East Sussex, aiming to attract companies and generate local jobs. The new building can accommodate up to 350 employees and is suitable for local expanding businesses or companies from outside the area.

Havelock Place’s features include:

  • full air-conditioning
  • full access raised floors
  • suspended ceilings with recessed lighting
  • showers on the ground and first floors
  • two 8-person lifts
  • high quality entrance hall
  • full DDA-compliance

The new offices stand in Hastings’ Priory Quarter business and education district near Sea Change’s other town centre developments. These include the 45,000 sq ft One Priory Square offices – now home to Saga Insurance – Hastings’ three university buildings and the Creative Media Centre.

Priory Quarter is two minutes’ walk from Sussex Coast College, Hastings’ main rail and bus terminal and two large public car parks.

Chancellor George Osborne, when he visited in August, said: “I’ve seen first-hand the regeneration taking place in Hastings and the positive effect it’s having on the local economy. Government support has boosted projects like Havelock Place, providing much-needed finance to get important developments going.

“The Government’s long-term economic plan is to back business and support local economies, which are vital for providing jobs and security for hard-working people. What I’ve seen shows this plan is working and highlights East Sussex as a great coastal business location.”
