CityGateway Comments

"This is an excellent regeneration scheme for a brownfield site - buying much needed homes, business and leisure space together. I am sure that it will be popular with locals in Portslade and create a real gateway to the city."

Ivor Caplin, the Labour Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade

“As a tall building development proposal, this scheme ticks most of the boxes, fulfilling the mixed-use criteria, design requirements and sustainability of both current Government Planning Guidance and also Brighton’s Tall Building Policy. The key to the success of this scheme is it’s sustainability, in my opinion the scheme has a well balanced mix of residential, commercial and leisure uses”.

Mr Oakley

"This project can have a significant effect on the economy of Brighton & Hove and help to solve our housing problems. As a Portslade Councillor and resident, I am particularly pleased to see that City Gateway Development are committed to improving the western end of the City."

Councillor Don Turner

“As a new City we have a great scarcity of exciting and innovative building projects. These proposals not only fulfil the need for an elegant 'gateway' statement when approaching from the west but they will also provide hundreds of much needed new homes on a non-Greenfield site. Hopefully the scheme will not only be Council approved and then built, but it will also lead to an upgrading and regeneration of the whole Port area. Let's all get behind it."

John Inwood, formerly of Inwood Tuck Partnership, Architects.

“The scheme is designed as a catalyst for Brighton and Hove to become a true City and be both the literal and the metaphorical gateway to the city. Any new city needs a dynamic and upwardly moving commercial and residential community to be consistent with its aims and aspirations. The architectural concept for City Gateway responds to this dynamic with a contemporary landmark design.”
