Monday 27 September 2021
We are delighted to have sold a commercial building in the heart of The Lanes in Brighton City Centre.
The property comprises a three storey building. It is arranged over four floors; the lower ground, a ground floor sales area with additional storage and WC at the rear, and first and second floors for ancillary storage/office areas. The ground floor offers wide retail frontage and two access points.
The property occupies a prominent position on the junction of Ship Street and Duke Street. Ship Street is one of Brighton’s most established and sought after shopping thoroughfares.
The property was purchased by Profile (Brighton) Ltd who operate as Profile Fashion. Established in 1980, Profile Fashion have been a long-standing Brighton based business with 4 stores across the city. You can visit their website here.
Will Thomas commented, “This was a prime city centre freehold opportunity that attracted a lot of interest. It just goes to show what an appetite there is for such opportunities and is the latest of a number of similar sales in city. With so much accommodation on the upper floors, I expected it to sell to a developer, but it has been sold to an owner operator who have plans to accommodate for more retail space and their office on the upper floors, which is good to see”.
